Class R

Welcome to Reception Class!

During the second half of the spring term we will be learning through the exciting topic;

‘My Little Garden’.

As always our topics are very much child led. We will start the topic by learning about different minibeasts, and will then create our own edible garden. Towards the end of the topic we plan to find out more about different birds and wild animals that  visit many of our gardens.

For a more detailed look at the seven areas of learning, please see the attached topic web.


Read, Write Inc

RWInc will continue to take place three times a week and children will work in ability groups. Extended writing and reading sessions will take place on the other two days.



We will continue to explore mathematical ideas and concepts through a wide range of activities both indoors and outdoors.



In class, your child has access to lots of educational apps on our class iPads. Most are free although some do have to be paid for. Here are some of the most popular ones;

Twinkl Phonics, eggy phonics, Collins ‘Big Cat’ stories, Twinkl Count to 20, Addition and Subtraction for kids, Tiggly chef, space numbers, How to write numbers, Get Growing.
