Welcome to the Reception class page.

Mrs Adams, Miss Simpson, Mrs Donnelly, Mrs McCabe, and Mrs Kelly  welcome you to the Reception class page. Whether we are inside or outside we are supporting the children to achieve to the best of their ability.

  This Autumn we have lots of exciting learning planned for the children! We will be using different stories to base our some of our learning on. These stories will include Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, The 3 Little Pigs, The Christmas story.

The children will have access to role play areas, creative activities and and more formal teaching of Read Write Inc and number. 


Read write Inc – The children will continue to learn their letter sounds and letter shapes and when they are ready moving onto 2 letters making one sound. The children will continue reading in class and more children will be bringing home a reading book. In Reception the children also begin to learn some of the Common exception Words from Year 1. These are the words that the children can’t sound out e.g. ‘the’ or ‘said’


Writing The children will continue using our Talk4Writing stories to base much of their writing on. They will be learning about how to sound out words and learning  the common exception words (that can’t be sounded out) in their work. 


Maths – The children continue to work on numbers to 20 and beyond. We will also be working on simple addition and subtraction as well as using different ways to measure things.

Some lovely interactive maths games can be found on this website:
