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 in school.


Our Topic this half term is 'Space and The Solar System'

This half term we will be learning all about Space and the Solar System. The children will learn about Space and how people get to Space.  We will also learn about our Solar System and the names of the planets.  The children will be reading fiction and non-fiction books/scripts to extend their writing and knowledge using our whole school Literacy scheme of 'The Primary Writing Project'.

Our Learning

Our new topic is planned from the children's interest in Space and The Solar System.  Many of our areas in the classroom will be linked to our new topic. Our reading area has will become a 'reading rocket' where the children can enjoy a variety of fiction and non-fiction books.  We will also have a new fantastic 'space station' role play area where children can extend their role play, reading, writing and maths.

In Maths the children will continue to learn all about Shape Space and Measure linking to our topic where possible.

The children will learn how to recognise, order and add and subtract using numbers up to 10 and 20.


The Way, the Truth and the Life

'God's World'

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.



Physical Education lessons are currently on a Wednesday afternoon with Miss Ledsham in the hall.  This term we are focusing on 'Gymnastics'.  We are also helping the children to become confident at getting changed into their PE kits and getting  changed back into their school uniforms when we return to class after PE. We will be sending PE kits home every half term holiday to be washed.


Reading Books

Reading 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 part 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'.

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
