Miss Kelly

Welcome to Reception!

We have had a fantastic start to our new year in Reception, we have really enjoyed exploring our areas both inside and out.

We began the year by discussing our families and how they are special to us - A special thank you to those parents who supported their children in creating some fantastic 'All About Me' posters. They all look beautiful on our classroom display.


In Literacy, we are learning about traditional fairytales - Goldilocks has been into our classroom!! We have been being super detectives to find out who made the mess. We are going to sequence the story and create WANTED posters to help the Bears find Goldilocks... she needs to say sorry.

Please share what your child has been up too at home as it really builds a whole picture of your child. We love to see what you and your child has been up to at the weekend.

In maths, we will be focussing on counting, this will then lead onto numerical recognition and formation. Please continue to encourage your child to count at home as this really helps them.


We teach phonics at the start of each day, the children are doing well when recognising a letter. They are becoming more able when classifying objects based on their initial sound. 


 We love to listen to and join in with the jolly phonics song - click on the link below!



We are continuing to develop our fine motor skills with our daily letter formation practice and there are lots of opportunities in provision to enhance our control.

In R.E. this term’s focus is 'I am Special'. Some children have been practicing their own meditation in our outside areas. We will be learning about how we know that we are special in the eyes of God and how we know that God is our heavinly Father. We also look forward to visiting St Peter's Church on our half termly visit.

P.E. will be on a Monday and a Friday, so please ensure your child has their kit in school at all times. Your child must dress themselves for school, this helps their physical development and helps them when changing for P.E. Also, can we remind you that ALL belongings need your child's name in. This will help any lost items be returned to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your support,

Miss Kelly and Miss Milburn



Here are some little ideas how you can support your child's learning at home:

  • Reinforce the sounds covered each day in class.
  • Practise name writing. Please make sure your child uses lower case letters except for their initial letter.
  • Share reading books, discussing plots, characters, and their feelings, as well as simply decoding the text.
  • Draw your child’s attention to numbers in their environment e.g. telephones, door numbers, car number plates etc. Count things around the home. How many windows do we have etc?
  • Encourage your child to dress themselves for school and take their uniform off at the end of the day to promote independence.


Recommended websites: - Mr Thorne has a channel on youtube dedicated to the pronunciation of sounds, called Mr Thorne Does Phonics

Similarly, you can also find the Alphablocks channel on Youtube, which will further support your child's phonic and sound knowledge. - some free phonic based games more phonics games - 5 minute videos which reinforce your child's phonic knowledge.
