Reception Class 2017-2018

Welcome to our class page.

Here you will be greeted by  Miss Brinkworth, Mrs Few and Miss Hitchcott. On this page you will find all the information you will need for our class.

Please come here regularly to check our class learning, home learning, class letters and weekly news.

Term 4

This term our topic is  ‘Growing/Traditional Tales’.  We will be exploring a range of different ways in which we and other animals grow! We will be reading the story of Rosie's Walk, Little Red Hen and Chicken Licken. As you can possibly tell, the main animal we are looking at are Chicks!!

We have had a delivery of eggs this week from 'Living Eggs'! They are in the incubator keeping warm and cosy ready to hatch on Wednesday (fingers crossed). Please keep checking on here and on Tapestry for regular updates. 

In phonics and literacy we are continuing to learn new sounds as well as learning to blend the sounds and segment the words ready to read. We are now beginning to write simple sentences using the sounds we have learnt! WELL DONE!

In maths, we are learning to recognise and write numbers from 10 - 20. We are going on number hunts around the school to see what numbers we can find. 

We are also learning about prepositions, using Rosie's Walk. The children are able to use those key words in working out where things are in the classroom. 


  • Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school all term.
  •  Every child MUST have a water bottle that is NAMED!

Living Eggs!!

We are very excited to introduce you to our eggs! We are very patiently waiting for them to hatch. The children decided to take it in turns to go on to 'egg-watch' where they watch and observe the eggs, and take notes in the chick diary. 

The children are keeping their own diaries which they are updating every day. 


What can you do at home?

Below are some ideas that you can do at home to help prepare your child for their first year at school. smiley

Tapestry Online Stories

Reception class will be starting to use online learning journeys and we will be using a piece of educational software called ‘Tapestry’. Tapestry online learning journeys allow you to view your child’s observations and photographs from their time in Reception class, almost as they happen! You can even choose to receive an email telling you when a new observation or piece of work is available for you to view. Tapestry allows you to add observations and photographs of your own as well as upload your comments. Please find the Tapestry letter and information guides below.
