Welcome to Reception's class page


Learning really is child's play in our Early Years Reception class.

Throughout the year we will be following a number of exciting themes to capture the children's interests including- Marvellous Me, Bears, Night and Day (including Space), People who help us and much more. We will also learn about Celebrations, such as Harvest, Diwali, Christmas, Chinese New Year and Easter!

We really value the learning and development that takes place at home too. There are several ways you can help to share this with us.

Wow Stars: Throughout the year we will send 'Wow Stars' home in your child's book bag. This provides the opportunity to record any significant achievements on the stars and share them with us by posting them back in their book bag. We will celebrate these with the class on the day they are brought into school and then they will be stuck in your child's 'Learning Journey' file.

Reading Books: Your child will bring home a book to read from school. We aim to change books after we have heard your child read at least twice a week. Please write a comment in their reading record book that will help us to understand how they are getting on with reading at home.

Home Learning Activities: Each week we will send home activities for you to enjoy with your child. These come home every Thursday and need to be completed and returned to school by the following Tuesday.

Additionally, you will be kept up to date with the learning activities your child has enjoyed each week by the 'Reception Reporter.' This is a weekly newsletter unique to our Reception Class.
