Reception Classes

Welcome to Reception!


We are so excited to welcome you into Reception.

This half term our topic is All About Me! We will be learning all about ourselves and our new friends.

In phonics we will be learning lots of new sounds.


Miss Sibley's PE days are Tuesday and Thursday.

Mrs Harkness' PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday.



Week 7- Outdoor Learning Week- See class pages.

See class pages for the Summer Reading Challenge!


Just a quick note to say the weekly planning will now cover Nursery and Reception. So please choose activities that you think are suitable for your child. These themes will also run in school for Nursery and Reception children. 

Try to pick activities from each learning area so your child gets a balance of experiences. You might even want to let them choose...this might make them engage more and be more interested. There are worksheets below the actual planning and attached separately but I understand not everyone has a printer so most of the activities can also be drawn or written out.

Reception children- please look on the Nursery class page under the different headings for other ideas that are not theme related.


Thank you, Miss Boertien


Ps Also remember to continue your phonics, reading practise, story time, and lots of physical activities including your Cosmic Kids Yoga, Joe Wicks and outdoor walks, bike runs...Fresh air and exercise are very important! 

New activities have been added on Purple Mash.
