Reception 2019 - 2020

Mrs Howard

Hello Parents and Carers,

Welcome to the Reception Class page!

Here are a few details of what happens in Reception.... 


In Reception we learn through topic based activities. We have a mixture of free choice activitiies and adult led activities. We teach phonics, tricky words, handwriting and guided writing every week, as well as daily maths inputs. If you would like a copy of the half termly topic plan, maths or phonics overview then please ask.  


Please pass on any messages to our TA's or to the office staff and always let us know if somebody different is collecting your child at home time.


Please remind your children to take out their daily snack and put it in the green box. Your child is encouraged to bring a water bottle to school. We will send this home on a Friday.  


i send out homework at the beginning of each new topic as well as regular maths challenges and tricky words to learn. 


We encourage your child to read little and often, everyday is ideal! Before you read, please make sure that you support the reading by looking through the book. Talk about what is happening, pick out any tricky words and practise them together. Later on when your child is ready, we will use comprehension tests to check that they are understanding what they are reading. 

Don't forget that on Friday we open the door at 8.40am. This is an opportunity to come into class and share a book with your child. As the weather gets colder we will try to open the door a little earlier.      

If you have any questions about Reception, please come and talk to me. 

Thank you for your continued support!

The Reception Team!
