Our Early Years Welcome Brochure

Welcome to Reception. 

We are very excited to have you in our Reception classes this year and to be able to help you learn and grow. We’re going to work hard and have lots of fun. We have lots of exciting topics to learn about!  These include: Once Upon a Rhyme; Families, friends and pets; Ready Steady Cook and St George and the Dragon.  

We will be learning by playing in the classroom and outside. We will also learn by taking part in small group activities and whole class activities. We will also practise our phonics every day and we will show you how to start reading and writing!  By the end of the year you will all be experts!   

Don't forget to keep checking back to our class page to find out about all our news. 

Look at the video on our Parents - Read Write Inc Phonics Page to see how we say our Pure Sounds when learning phonics.  This helps us to say and read words more easily.


Home Learning Ideas

Welcome to our takeaway menu - an exciting way to support learning at home.  Remember that children have to complete at least 2 menu options over the next term.  Starters are the easiest activities followed by mains.  Sides offer that extra challenge!   Enjoy this terms selection and tuck in!

Help your child to write their name and other words with letters correctly formed.

COMING SOON - TAPESTRY - an easy to use online learning journal
