Welcome to Reception 

Here you will find some useful information to support your child in Reception.

We have fun, thrive and excel as individuals and learners. 

We always try our best and work hard as a team.  

We believe "Happiness first and all else follows." (Aristotle) 

Read Write Inc. 

 We adopt Read Write Inc. within School with our children reading and writing each day in varying contexts. 

Your child has their own Reading Record and will bring home a banded reading book each 

Wednesday.  They may also access e-books to share at home using our class login to Oxford Owl.  

 

Your child has their Fred Book in which we add sounds and key words each Wednesday to practise at home. 

Please note, at present all Reading Records, Reading Books and Fred Books are collected in each Monday, updated and put in book bags each Wednesday.

Reception 

Your child will develop and learn so much through Reception.  Play is an essential part of teaching and much of your child's learning will be through play, whether initiated by themselves or guided  by adults.            

We have a range of topics throughout the year with focus texts and our Book of the Week.

We are a partnership, with the same hopes and aspirations for your child, hence we welcome and value your input. We love to share learning at home either via Tapestry or by your child bringing items in.

Growth Mindset 

Our Class Saint 

St. Francis of Assisi 

He looks after the animals. 

He was rich and gave his things away.

We can pray to him.

He teaches us to:

Love all animals.

Be kind to animals.

Help animals.

Don't hurt animals.

Our Class Scientist 

Charles MacIntosh

He made the first mac.

 

We had fun investigating the best material to make a rain coat for our class mascot.

We predicted.

We measured carefully.

We observed closely.

We talked together.

We had fun.

We used scientific words - waterproof, absorbent.
