Reception

Latest Updates

Weekly Information

This week our traditional tale is The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We are acting out the story using puppets and masks that we are making. We are also continuing to learn a new letter sound each day, by the end of the week the children will have learnt s a t p i n m d g and will be thinking of words which start with this sound. In Maths we will be working on matching quantities to numbers, going on treasure hunt to find numbers outside and using Numicon in print and paint.

This term the children will be settling into school life and learning all our routines and Rainbow Rules. We will start learning letter sounds in phonics and may even start reading simple words! We will also be reading lots of Traditional Tales as part of our topic of Once Upon a Time, such as The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. In Maths we will be learning to count, recognise numerals, match numerals and quantity, use size language, 2D shape names and to recognise and continue patterns.

General Information

In Reception we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS). Within the EYFS there are 7 areas of learning, they are split into the Prime Areas and the Specific Areas. The Prime Areas are the foundation for all other learning. These are; Personal, Social and Emotion Development (understanding feelings and playing with others), Physical Development (both gross motor skills like climbing, as well as fine motor skills like pencil control), and Communication and Language (which includes listening skills and being able to retell narratives from stories). The Specific Areas are Literacy, Maths, Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding of the World.
The children take part in both child-initiated play and adult-led activities to support their learning, using both the indoor and outdoor learning environments. During Reception, children learn phonics to begin reading and writing.
The classes in Reception are:
Robins (RRN) with Mrs Tindall as the class teacher, Mrs Frankland/Miss Watton as classroom TA’s, and Mrs Davies as SEN support.
Woodpeckers (RWP) with Mrs Jones as class teacher, Mrs Phillips as TA, and Mrs Knipe as SEN support.
Owls (ROW) with Miss Willis as class teacher, Mrs Cornwell as TA, and Mrs Stanton as SEN support.
Kingfishers (RKF) with Mrs Crane and Mr Cash as class teachers, Mrs Gingell-Jones as TA, and Mrs Lord as SEN support.
