Welcome to Reception!  We look forward to a busy and exciting year working with you and your child! On this page you will be able to find vital information about Reception and find out about how we learn and what we learn.

By the end of Reception we expect all students to be independent and responsible for themselves making them Year 1 ready. It is essential that similar expectations are in place in their home life too. Reception children should be dressing themselves, be able to put on and do up their own coats and should be responsible for some of their own things such as water bottles, clothing and hats.

Latest News

We are looking forward to going up to the Forest School and History week in week 6. Next term we will be going on our school trip to Leysdown beach. Now the warmer weather is here please ensure your child brings a sun hat and water bottle to school each day. Thank you.

                       What Reception are up to in Term 5 and 6…

Learning Journal Topic
In Term 5 and 6 we will be following children’s interests. This term we will be exploring Minibeasts. We will be using our garden learning area and Forest School environment to explore and find out interesting facts about Minibeasts.

This term our RE topic is New Life where we will be learning about The Resurrection story and that it is a time of joy and surprise. Next term our RE topic is The Church where we will be visiting our school Church and looking at the important places in it.


Literacy will be covered through following the children’s interests and recorded in their Learning Journals. Ask your child which books we have been reading!


In Maths we will cover addition and subtraction within 20 and number bonds to 10. We will also look at weight and capacity, as well as doubling, halving and sharing.

Keep your eyes on the Reception Homework page for activities and videos you can use to support your child at home.

RWI (Read, Write, Inc.)

In RWI we will be continuing to learn our sounds and read the green words using Fred Talk. The children are going to work on holding and writing a sentence, using correct punctuation. Please support your child at home with any phonics work.

Please ensure you  support your child at home with the RWI homework.

It would also be most beneficial if you could support your child to write their full name independently.
