Reception Classes


We hope you had a chance to enjoy some of the lovely sunshine over the half term break. Here is some information about what we have planned for the second half of the Summer Term.


Phonics and Reading: recap all the Phase 2 and 3 phonemes regularly with a particular focus on blending the sounds to read longer words (Phase 4). Learn to recognise High-Frequency words by sight, particularly the Phase 2,3 and 4 Tricky Words.


Writing: practise forming letters correctly and cursively. Spell some High-Frequency words correctly and use phonics to write other words.


Mathematics: practise counting accurately and recognise, write and order all numbers up to at least 20. Practise saying what is one more / one less than a number. Practise adding and subtracting practically using objects and try to record the number sentences.


Understanding the World: In our topic ‘Traditional Tales’ we will be retelling lots of well known stories such as ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and focusing on the characters and settings.


Each week there will be some fun activities that you can try at home that will give your child some valuable experiences and the opportunity to develop some of the skills outlined in the Early Learning Goals. As most learning in Reception class is through child-initiated play, remember to encourage your child to follow their own interests as well.


Remember, you can keep in contact with us using the year group email address:


Stay safe and have fun!
