In Reception we have 3 classes, Class 1 with the class teacher Ms Mc Gough and teaching assistant Mrs Kearney, Class 2 with the class teachers Mrs Roberts and Mrs Wolfarth and teaching assistant Mrs Lindsay and Class 3 with the class teacher Mr Sayer and the teaching assistant Miss Sim. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Each half term we have a new topic and we decide what we would like to learn together. Our learning each day consists of a phonics session, a maths sessions, a story session and topic session. We learn through play in the different areas in our classrooms. We develop our independence in Reception and learn lots of key skills such as making relationships with our new friends and learning how to share and take turns. We also learn key Literacy and Mathematics skills which are important building blocks for our future learning.
September In Reception
Welcome to our Reception home page. We will tell you all about our learning in Reception each month on this page and any other news we want to share. Reception have all settled into the full school day really well and we are extremely proud of them all. Thank you for all of the hard work completing the Summer Memory Boxes with your children. They were a conversation starter and children used their language skills to talk about their memories to their friends and answered lots of questions about the different exciting activities they did over the holiday.
Our topic this half term is “We are Great”. During this topic we having been getting to know our new friends and find out about makes each of us great. We have been learning and exploring in our new classroom environments and in our Reception Learning Garden. We have talked about our school golden rules and have made up our own class charters which we have all signed and agreed to follow.
We have started our English sessions and have been learning to recognise and write some letters. So far we have learnt the sounds – s, a, t, p, i ,n, m, d, g, o, c, k and we have been reading and writing words with these letters, as well as working really hard to form them correctly.
In our Maths lessons we have been focusing on a different number each week. So far we have focused on numbers 1, 2 and 3 and have been learning all about this number, what it looks like as a numeral, as a quantity and using it in different way such as weighing items, counting coins, adding and taking away. It has been great fun.
