Welcome to Reception!


The Teacher in Reception is Mrs Hawley and our Teaching Assistant is Miss Sullivan.


In Reception, stories are at the heart of our curriculum. This half term we are learning about Fairytale stories. These are the stories we will be learning about:

  • Little Red Riding Hood
  • The Three Little Pigs
  • Cinderella
  • Hansel & Gretel
  • The Gingerbread Man


We will be creating story maps, and engaging in role play activities to help your child learn the stories by memory and enjoy the repeated story language.


In Mathematics, we are focusing on counting quantities from a larger group of objects and matching amounts to a numeral.

We will also be comparing every day objects by length and height using mathematical language. For example, Which is the tallest? Which is the shortest? Which is the longest?


We have our PE lesson every Monday afternoon and a computing lesson every Thursday afternoon.


We have been teaching your child to use cursive letters to write their name and in Phonics we have been learning the letter sounds. Can you play the game 'I Spy' at home to practise hearing the initial sounds in words?
