Welcome to Reception!



The children are thoroughly enjoying the mud kitchen! As the weather is still quite chilly the children are wearing their school coats and the aprons are not quite covering them. To protect their school coats your child can bring in their coats/ puddle suits that they wear for forest school. We would like to keep these in school so that they can access the mud kitchen when they choose too as this is open daily. Please can you make sure your child has their wellies in school at all times so that they can access the outside areas. Thank you

Cygnets and Ducklings

Please click on the links below to look at what your children are learning this week. You will find what sounds your children are learning in that week and what the adults directed tasks are. To clarify the reading scheme and the phonics learning aids, we ask that you sign and date each time your child reads in the reading record. This can be any book as a variety of books helps promote the love for reading. The learning aids are resources that you can use at home to support your child with their phonics, numbers and shapes. You can use the books for writing and practising number formation but we know that children can find numbers and letters everywhere and you can share any photos with us via tapestry.

Miss Nash:


We will check these emails once a day and get back to your queries/questions as quickly as possible. 


Home Learning:


For those of you who are continuing to learn from home we would strongly recommend the Oak National Academy. This is an amazing website which has online lessons for each subject. If you search for Reception there are lots of lessons the children can watch and participate in.

Phonics resources: 

Here are some resources to help you with Phonics. There is both Phase 2 and Phase 3 Phonics sounds mats, we use these in the classroom so your child should be familiar with them. There is also Phase 2 and Phase 3 Tricky Words, please practise these with your child, both reading and writing them. Please find the linked documents underneath the pictures.
