Welcome to our Reception Class Page!
We hope you have all had a fantastic summer holiday and that you are looking forward to starting in Reception! This year is going to be filled with lots of exciting new learning and fun!
Our topic this half-term is 'All About Me.' Throughout this topic we will be learning our new class routines and rules, as well as exploring our new classroom and outdoor environment. We will be learning all about ourselves, our bodies, senses and changes. We will also be having lots of discussions about our family and friends, and sharing our own hobbies and interests with others. We will be exploring the different things that make us unique and thinking about how we can appreciate others too.
We are looking forward to exploring our creative skills through lots of different art and crafts activities, such as painting our own self-portrait. We will also be learning and singing some good morning songs, and other songs related to our topic, including 'My Body is Special to Me.'
In Literacy, we will be listening to and looking at a range of stories and texts based around our topic. We will be learning to recognise and write our own names, and even other children's or family members names too. We will be learning to recognise initial sounds in words and will also begin to learn lots of new sounds in our Phonics lessons.
In Maths, we will be playing lots of counting games and exploring numbers up to 5 in detail. We will learn the names of some 2D shapes and will use these to create our own shape pictures. We will also explore our class and school routines, and begin to use positional language too.
Our PE days are every Monday and Friday. Remember to come to school wearing PE kits on both of these days.

See you in school!
