Reception 2020 - 2021


 Teacher: Miss H Ledsham

Teaching Assistant: Mrs S Steele

Welcome to Reception!

Welcome to our Reception Class page, where we will keep you up to date with the children's learning and share important information, events and photographs with you.  We aim to provide a wonderful learning environment for the children in the Early Years Foundation Stage that is full of nurture, fun and engagement. 



Please tell Miss Ledsham on the gate or contact the school office if you wish to have a conversation about your child and then this can be arranged by Miss Ledsham.  We are always available to talk about your child, their learning, progress and well-being.  We look forward to getting to know you and your child as they begin their first year in school.


Our Topic/Book this half term is 'All About Me' and 'The Gingerbread Man'

For the first few full weeks of the Reception year Miss Ledsham will be carrying out Baseline Assessments on all children in the class, this will go alongside the topic 'All About Me'.  The children will have the opportunity to talk about and complete activities based on their family and where they live. 

We will then begin learning the story of 'The Gingerbread Man' and children will complete a variety of activities in groups and in the continuous provision to ensure all areas of learning are being met.  We will follow our school English scheme of 'Pathways to Write' to teach the story and activities based around it.


Gingerbread Man, Paperback By Alperin, Mara Latimer, Miriam (Ilt),

In Maths the chidren will be learning how to recognise and order number 0-5 and beyond.  They will also learn about 2D shapes and their properties.  Miss Ledsham will use WhiteRose Maths to support all children's learning and progression in Mathematics.


Home Learning

Below are some websites you might find useful to explore with your child as and when you please.  Please don't feel the need that they have to all be done in one go.  If you explore and complete any of the activities below please feel free to upload any pictures and observations to Learning Book.
