Reception Class J

Mrs Reid      


Welcome to the Reception class page. 


Our class saint is St Bernadette.

We will be learning all about St Bernadette this year. We will be exploring what a fantastic lady she was and how we can use her as an example of living out our Mission Statement. 

This Summer half term children will be learning all about the Coronation. We will be creating artwork to go in Leek Library under our vehicle name 'Fit For a King'. The children will use a range of Arts and Craft techniques to create crowns, jewelry, portraits and castles. We will also be having a whole school Coronation celebration picnic. 



Please take a look at our curriculum map below to find out more. 



We spend lots of time in our lovely outdoor area so children will need to bring coats and water bottles to school every day. If it is wet children can bring wellies. In the Summer children can bring hats and sun cream. Please make sure ALL items of clothing are clearly labelled including water bottles, lunch boxes and PE kits.


We are a Read Write inc school and we work very hard to support your child to become a reader who loves books. To support your child please read every night at home and sign the diary. A book bag must be in school every day to enable us to read with your child and change their book. Children will be sent home with a book after the first week at school. 


Children will have a RWI book and a book for pleasure for you to share at home. 


We have our weekly 'Mystery Reader' so please don't forget to sign up!


Please visit the Read Write INc page for more information and don't forget to attend our Read Write INc parents meeting on Wednesday 23rd September.


PE is on a Thursday so please ensure your child has a full kit in school so they can take part in their exciting PE session.

Reading... Choosing a book for your child that they will love can sometimes be a daunting task. Click the link for a recommended selection of age appropriate texts.

In Maths children will be working on counting correctly and recognising numbers to 20. 


We are also starting to think about the way numbers are organised and how to count more and less along a numberline.


We will also be looking at different shapes. 



Homework is sent out on a Wednesday to be completed and returned on Monday.

Resources to support your child at home

We learn sounds through Read Write inc. Please visit the website for more information 


The children also love to hear the sounds on Alphablocks

Play along with the Alphablocks and have fun with the letters of the alphabet (click the link)


Top Marks is a website with lot of interactive games that can be used on a laptop or tablet.

There are maths and literacy games to help support recognition,

counting, sounding out and letter recognition



Many thanks for your continuing support.
