Reception 2020 - 2021

Mrs Armitage

Mrs Hunt

Reception Class Teacher

Welcome to Reception!

Mrs Armitage is your class teacher on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Mrs Hunt will be teaching on a Thursday and a Friday. 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 Autumn topic is based on the book, 'Atlas of Animal Adventures'

 by Rachel Williams and Emily Hawkins, in Reception we will be exploring Australia.

We'll start by thinking about where Australia is in the world, we will look at famous Australian landmarks, learn about Aboriginal art as well as Australian animals like the koala and the wombat.

Please see our Australia curriculum map for more information about what else we will be learning about. 


During the autumn term, Reception will have their P.E. lessons every  Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure that your child wears their full P.E. kit in school on those days. 


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.  Please listen to your child read at least three times a week and write in their reading record after every read.

The words below are an example of "red words" these are words that cannot be sounded out and have to be memorised. We will send home ten red words every half term, please help your child to learn to read and write these words. Please see the red word power point in the files, this shows all the red words your child will need to know for each level of the Read Write Inc reading Scheme. The first ten red words have been uploaded to the files for you to use at home with your child.



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!
