Welcome to Reception!

Welcome! I hope you and your children have had a lovely Summer! I can’t wait to hear all about it!

On this page I will add links and ideas of some phonics and maths games you can do with your chid as we progress through the year. Here’s a few good ones:

(the children are very familiar with these games!)

phonics games – easy to use

a website to encourage reading! A great way to do some reading together but the children see it as play!


If you ever have any concerns please come and see me in the mornings or we can arrange a more private meeting after school.

Here is a link to a document from the Department of Education outlining the gradual process of development from 0 – 5 years. If you want to have a look and you can see what your child may do at home that links to any specific age boundaries I can then add those details you have noticed at home onto their learning journey in school.

Our topic this term is People who help us!

This term we will be exploring who help us in our everyday life and in the community! We will have lots of special guests coming to talk to us about how they help us and what their jobs are all about! We will be creating exciting role plays to act out different occupations and learn how we can help others. In maths, we will be learning to confidently count to 10 and recognise the numeral to match a quantity, while in phonics we will be learning to recognise the sounds of the alphabet and explore blending sounds together!

In October, I will assign each child with a tapestry account so I can upload daily photos of their learning which you can log in and view. Please keep a look out for a letter coming out soon which will explain more about this opportunity.

Science experiments!

Children love investigating and exploring everything about the world we live in. Below are some experiments you and your child might love to have a go at home! Please pick one or two and take some photos for us to see! These experiments are a great opportunity for children to practice their observation skills and communicate their thoughts.

– It has been wonderful to hear the children come in to school and tell each other which experiment they have tried at home, so I will add some new ones to the list every so often – there are a few new ones for you to try at the bottom!
