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 notify 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 ‘Animals’ linking in with the text ‘Silly Doggy’.


This half the Pathways to Write text is ‘Silly Doggy’.  This story is all about a girl who find a pet in her garden. It is designed to support children talk about different animals and their pets.  The role play area will be a ‘Vets’ where the children can help different animals to get better.  The children will also learn about different different animals and where they live and some facts about them



In Maths the children will be starting Phase 5 from The WhiteRose Maths scheme.  The topic for the first part of Spring term is called ‘To 20 and Beyond’ The children will learn how to recognise the larger numbers 11-20 and they will be able to order these numbers and say which number is 1 more and 1 less than any given number.  The children will also learn how to add and subtract within 20 using objects.
