Reception 2019 - 2020


 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 term is 'Pirates' linking to our PWP book this half term, 'The Night Pirates'.


This half term we will learn the story of 'The Night Pirates'. We will learn how to retell the story 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 Pirates ships and exploring different sea creatures in the small world.  We also have a new Role Play area of a 'Pirate Ship', which links in with our current story and our new topic.

Our Learning

The children will also develop others skills such as designing and painting as well as reading a variety of fiction and non fiction books in our indoor and outdoor reading Den.  Children will develop their understanding of the world further as they can explore planting and growing in our outdoor garden.

In Maths the children will be consolidating numbers 0-20 as well as doubling, halving and sharing.  In Shape Space and Measure the children will be learning how about capacity, position and distance.


The Way, the Truth and the Life

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.  Our unit of work this term is Dance and Athletics (including practising for Sports Day).


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'.

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
