Reception

Welcome to our Reception Class Page.  

Our first few weeks will focus on settling in, exploring our environment and building relationships.  We will learn all about each other and our families through our topic ‘All about Me’.

In Mathematics, we will be matching and sorting objects as well as developing our counting skills using objects and learning how to count accurately.  We will compare amounts using the language of ‘more’ and ‘less’ in addition to learning about shape and pattern.

We will begin our phonics lessons this term and the children will begin to blend and read their first words!  We love stories in Reception and we spend lots of time sharing and talking about books.

In RE the children will be learning about Families and after half-term, we will enjoy learning about the season of Advent.  We will also be learning our St Elizabeth's prayers and start taking part in whole school assemblies.

As the seasons start to change we will then learn about Autumn and Harvest.  We will explore the changes we can see in the world around us and read many stories which complement our themes.  The children will harvest the vegetables growing in our outdoor area and we will have a go at making our own bread and pumpkin soup!
