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, making them ready for Year 1. It is essential that similar expectations are in place in their home life too. Reception children should be dressing themselves, be able to recognise their own names, put on, fasten and unfasten their own coats and be responsible for some of their own things such as water bottles, clothing and book bags.
Our theme/topic in Term 3 is ‘Pirate Dinosaur by Penny Dale’
Our theme topic for Term 4 is: Food around the world/ Handa’s Surprise by Eileen Brown
We will use these texts in many areas of learning to explore them in great depth.
Our Read Write Inc (RWI) open morning will be Tuesday 22nd January at 9:00-9:30 where you can come in and see how we teach a Read Write Inc lesson and become a part of the lesson with your child. This will give you a great insight into how the sounds are said and how we use them to read and write words/sentences. This will help you to support your child at home too.
