Reception 2018 - 2019


 Teacher: Miss H Ledsham

Teaching Assistant: Mrs R Green 

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 nuture, fun and engagement. 



Please tell the team if you have any worries or concerns.  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 half term in school.


Our Topic this half term is 'Fairy Tales' then Christmas


This half term we will learn the story of Cinderella which will be linked to the Primary Writing Project. We will learn how to retell the story of 'Cinderella' to support the children's oral retelling and understanding of a familiar story.   The children will also complete activities related to the story such as making wands and crowns and they will be able to develop their narrative in our new role play area of a Castle.

Our Learning

The children will also develop others skills such as cutting and designing as well as reading a variety of fiction and non fiction books in our reading den.

In Maths the children will be learning how to work out one more and one less to 10 and how to add two groups within 10.  In Shape Space and Measure children will be learning to comparing various objects according to their length or height.  We will also be learning about weight and capacity.

The RE scheme we follow at St Luke's Catholic Primary School is 'The Way, The Truth and The Life, which is taught in every class.  This term we will be learning about 'Gods World', as well as having worship time and prayers embedded  into our daily routine.



PE is currently in the hall on either on a Thursday morning or a Friday morning.  Please keep you child's PE bag in school on these days.  We are currently learning how to do Fundamental Skills this term.


Reading Books

Books will be changed on a Tuesday and a Friday.   Please make sure you are reading with your child at home and make a comment in their reading diary.  If you wish you keep a book a little longer you can keep the book until the next Friday or Tuesday.


Not forgetting to mention....

Please ensure that your child bring a named water bottle into school everyday and if you haven't done so already, please could you provide your child with a pair of wellies to keep in school for the year.  We will be using the field aspart of our outdoor classroom regularly and want the children to be prepared!


Assessment and Learning Journeys

To document our learning in Reception, we use the online learning journey 'Learning Book'.

You can view your child's learning at any time, on any device, using your email address and password that you were given at the beginning of the year. We can reset this at any time, if needed!  The website address is www.learningbook.co.uk

Not only can you view your child's learning but you can also add in your own images and comments to share what learning has been taking place at home. We love celebrating these moments in school and they demonstrate the progress that your child is making.


Kind regards

Miss Ledsham
