Reception 2023 - 2024

Mr Hill

Teaching Assistants - Miss Lord and Mrs Gadsby

Welcome to Reception Class

Welcome back!

We hope you have all had a brilliant Christmas break and are ready for another busy half term!


We will be continuing with our phonics programme Sounds~Write, introducing more new sounds in the coming weeks. The children will continue to take Phonics books to share at home. These books have been read daily in school and they match the focus sounds that week.


Our new focus story this half term is Let's All Creep Through Crocodile Creek by Jonny Lambert. We will spark the children's interest meeting the characters and discussing our own adventures. We will follow the animals and explore the jungle with them. We will also explore the world around us, looking at homes around the world and how they might differ from our own. We will also be looking out into Space using the theme to influence our Literacy, Maths and Art work. 



In Maths this half term we will be looking at numbers to 10. We will spend lots of time counting, ordering and manipulating to develop a deep understanding. We will also be learning about positional language and moving onto more complex platterns. Listen out for the children singing Banana, Banana, Meatball a few weeks into the new half term!

Below you will find a video explainig the importance of early number sense. Please take a look for an insight into what happens in school as well as ideas of things you could do when using numbers at home.
