Class R

Welcome to Reception Class!

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

‘Our Favourite Stories’.

This topic is very much child led. We will be spending the first week reading and discussing our favourite books and then we will then choose a story that we want to explore in more detail.

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


Read, Write Inc

The children have now been introduced to all the Set One sounds and I am delighted with the progress they have all made. RWInc will now 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.



I am available every day, either before or after school, if you have any concerns or just want to chat about any aspects of your child's learning.
