Reception 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Reception
Welcome to Reception's class page. We hope you had a good break and are ready for the run up to Christmas!
The children have all settled well into their school routines and have enjoyed making contact with their Year 6 buddies. The next half term in Reception will be very busy with lots of learning to experience.
Keep checking our class page weekly for letters and pictures of all the fun activities that we will be doing. Please continue to work on the homework sent out and upload work onto Tapestry.
Make sure that you look at your child’s Learning Journey via the Tapestry website; this will keep you up to date with what they are learning in school. Please remember that you can add your own comments, photos and videos of what your child is doing at home onto Tapestry. We love to read all about the exciting things that have happened at home and all of the WOW moments you notice.
This year we would like to invite mystery readers to read a story to the children via Zoom. So far, the children have had stories read by mums, aunts and uncles. The children love parents and family to be involved in our learning in this way. If you would like to take part in this, please let us know and we will set up a time that is suitable for you.
End of day collection
If your child is going home with someone other than a parent/carer please make sure you inform the member of staff in the morning or contact the school office.
PE kits will be sent home at the end of the half term (if they get very dirty we will send them home before!) This half term, we will be having PE on Wednesday and Thursday mornings but there may be extra sessions and so it is easier to keep the kit in school to allow flexibility. To avoid us sending home someone else’s belongings, please can you ensure that you label all of your child’s school clothing. As I am sure you can appreciate, it is very difficult to match up the correct clothing to the child when they all look the same!
Please also remember that your child needs a pair of named wellington boots that will remain in school.
In Reception we have daily phonics sessions. Phonics teaches children letter sounds which then enables them to blend and segment sounds together to help them learn to read and write. Having completed Phase2 encouraging children to develop their listening skills, differentiation between sounds and start to orally blend sounds together we are now moving on to Phase 3.
- Phonics Play
- Letters and Sounds
- ICT games
- Oxford Owl

We look forward to continuing to work in partnership with you this year. Your support at home really does make a huge difference. Don’t forget that we are here for you as well as your son or daughter. Please do not hesitate to make contact no matter how small you may think the issue may be.
