Dress for the weather

We make the most of our lovely outdoor learning environment in Reception. Please ensure that your child has wellies and a waterproof coat in school each day. On sunny days please bring a named sunhat and we  ask that parents/carers ensure they have applied 8hr/all day suncream before arriving at school.


Reception Learning

Weekly homework for all pupils in Reception has a reading focus.

Please share your child's story and scheme books frequently throughout the week, so that they know them really well and can talk about characters, events and settings. There will also be some red (irregular) words to learn at home. These can be found below as a downloadable pdf and were included in your homelearning packs.

As social distancing makes it difficult to have conversations at pick up and drop off, please feel free to email us with any questions or concerns. Please be aware that we are usually unable to read/check emails during the school day, but will respond at quickly as we can.




Week Nine Summer Term- outline of planned learning opportunities (WB 21st June)

Storytime  We will be sharing the stories about resilience and friendship to fit with our Sports Day theme. Stories include 'The Hare and the Tortoise', 'The Koala that Could' and 'The Squirrels who Squabbled'. There are links to the first two of these stories below.



Phonics  Daily phonics lessons this term will teach set two sounds and support children to quickly blend set one sounds to read words and short sentences. This week we will be revisiting ay, ee, igh, ow, oo, oo and teaching the new set 2 sound ar. Red words (which are not decodable) will be learnt by sight. There is a pdf of these red words in the section below to support homework this term. Children will bring home a new story book each Monday to enjoy together and a new scheme book to read themselves, which contains words made up of the sounds and red words that your child has learnt in school. 

Mathematics  This week we will be exploring doubling as we begin our new unit 'Find My Pattern'. The link to the White Rose Home Learning videos are below. Our planning is also available to download in the resources box below.


Our Summer Term Learning overview is also saved below. This will give information about what we plan to teach in all seven areas of learning this term (page one) and will give some ideas about how to support learning at home on page two. There is a lot of information on this document and there is no expectation that you try to cover all of the suggestions. You may like to choose things that interest your child or that you know they need support with.
