*Welcome to Reception*

We hope you all had a lovely well deserved half term break!

 We are extremely proud of all of our children and how well they have settled into their first term in school. 

Our topic this half term is - 

Who lives in the woods?


 This half term, we will be exploring stories written by Julia Donaldson.

We will learn how to retell stories, develop our story telling language and begin creating simple story maps. 

The phonics scheme used within school is Floppy Phonics. 

We will continue developing our knowledge of phase 1+ phonics learning new phonemes and beginning to read and write simple CVC words. 


We will learn how to label and write simple lists. 


During our maths sessions we will be exploring numbers to 5 and matching and sorting objects and images. 

As always we will be working together to develop our PSED skills, sharing, turn taking and taking care of one another. We will also embed our class virtue - Kindness.

Please ensure you read with your child as often as possible. Reading books are sent home weekly and should be returned on your allocated day. Please keep reading books in book bags and ensure they are signed, 

Please download the Tapestry app and make sure you have registered to receive updates on your child's progress. 


Our door is always open and we are always happy to meet, chat and listen to parents. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any help or support. 


Thank you for your continued support, 


Mrs Rigby, Mrs McDermott, Miss Williams and Miss Spencer.
