Reception 2022 - 2023

Mr Hill

Welcome to Reception Class

A warm welcome to all of our new children and families starting with us in September, we can't wait to get to know you all.

In Reception we aim to make the transition into school as smooth as possible. We will spend the first few weeks of term getting to know the children and helping them to explore the new environment. We will also spend a lot of time sharing stories and singing familiar rhymes. 


We will be using the phonics programme Sounds~Write to begin our journey into early reading and writing. After the week of Phonics lessons the children will bring home a phonics book which they have read every day in school. The book matches the sounds they have learnt that week. 


Our first focus story of the year is The Gingerbread Man by Mara Alperin. We will spark the children's interest by baking our own gingerbread men and we will then spend the rest of the term exploring and learning the story in a lot of detail.

In Maths this half term we will be developing a deep understanding of the numbers 1-5. We will also be learning about 2-d shapes, pattern, mass and capacity.


Below you will find a video explainig the importance of early number sense. Please take a look for an insight into what happens in school as well as ideas of things you could do when using numbers at home.
