Reception 2019 - 2020

Mrs Armitage

Mrs Armitage

Welcome to Reception! Mrs Armitage and Mrs Hunt are the class teachers.

We aim to provide a challenging and fun learning environment, both indoors and outdoors, for children to ignite self-curiosity and nurture a life-long love of learning! 

Our whole school Spring topic is Timeline: AVisual History of Our World by Peter Goes. In  reception we will start by thinking about our own history. What was I like as a baby?  How have I changed?  What have I learned to do?  Please see our Incredible Me topic web for more information about our time discovering our uniqueness! In the second half of the term we will travel back in time to find out all about dinosaurs.  



Reading is at the heart of reception. Children learn to read in a story-rich environment.  We share books every day and learn about the world through a range of fiction and non-fiction books. Please see our list of topic based books you can read with your child. In the autumn term, reception will be taught set 1 sounds of the Read Write Inc programme. Read Write Inc (RWI) is a phonics programme which helps all children learn to read fluently and at speed so they can focus on developing their skills in comprehension, vocabulary and spelling. Phonic sessions will be taught at 10.30-11.00 daily.  



Our maths focus for this half term is numbers 1-5. How many different ways can you find the numbers? It could be a house number or a group of flowers!
