Class R

Welcome to Reception Class!

Our Summer Term theme is ‘Explore the World’. This will be broken down into three ‘mini’ topics; ‘Creatures great and small’, ‘Space’ and ‘Under the Sea’.

For more information on these topics, please click on the Topic Webs at the bottom of the page.


The children in the class are making amazing progress with their reading, both within the classroom and at home. Thank you very much for your support at home with this, it’s lovely to see so many parents reading with their child every night and leaving a comment in their reading book.

The children are now fully immersed into the learning of Phonics. They continue to follow the Read Write Inc programme which enables and supports all of the children to emerge as confident readers and writers.

The progress the children have made is fantastic, most children are now able to, make words, read books, write words and sentences using their phonic knowledge.

The children are continuing to recognise and write numbers from zero to twenty in both numerals and words. Using objects they are learning to add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer.
