Reception Class

Hello everybody and welcome to the Spring Term in Reception class. This term the children will  be reading the traditional tale 'The Ugly Duckling' and exploring our themes 'Ducks' and 'Farmyards.' We will also read a range of non-fiction books about ducks and learn about different animals that live on the farm as part of this topic. The children will continue to learn more sounds (phonics) to help them read and will bring more books home to read and share. In Maths we will be focusing particularly upon creating pairs of numbers that make 10 and exploring some more complex patterns. The children will continue to have the chance to participate in exciting Forest School activities in our large outdoor area - don't forget your wellies!


Please keep checking your child's Dojo account for any messages that we might send you about the learning taking place in school.


We look forward to continuing our exciting learning adventure in Reception Class, watching your children grow and develop during their time in Reception Class. 


Miss Knox and Mrs Travers

Parent Notices:


  • If you have not already activated your Dojo account, please do so as soon as possible! Dojo is a great way to communicate with your teacher and find out what is happening in school.   In addition, home learning challenges may be posted on Dojo to encourage and extend your child's learning at home. If you need assistance, please  ask on the gate or phone us at the front office. 
  • Remember to send a pair of labelled wellies with your child for Forest School on Wednesday. If you have any old wellies that don't fit anymore we will happily take donations for children who forget theirs or do not have any!
  • If you choose to opt out of Religious Education, please send in an activity for your child to complete in its place. This can be related to literacy, maths, or another topic to  enrich  your child's learning  experience. 
  • Remember to read with your child each night and sign the yellow Reading Record when we start to send books home. 
  • Reading with your child at home is so important in their early stages of development. We ask that children bring in their yellow books and reading books on the dates stated in their reading record.
