Reception 2021 - 2022


Dear Reception Children and Parents, 

During the spring term we will be covering two themed topics, through which we will teach many aspects of our curriculum. In the first half term we will be finding out about the jobs of a range of people in our community, under a topic headed 'HATS.' In the second half of the spring term, our learning will be based around a topic called 'Once upon a Woodland Walk.' This topic has a focus on lots of traditional tales and provides opportunities to explore the natural areas around school. (Please see the black folder entitled SPRING above this message to access more detailed information about teaching and learning within the topics.)

Our PE days will be on Mondays and Wednesdays this term, so, as usual, the children may come dressed in their PE clothes on those days. PE can be indoors or outdoors, so as the weather remains cool, we would recommend that the children come to school in black joggers, a white top and their school sweatshirt or cardigan, or a black tracksuit top, in line with the uniform policy. 

We continue to give reading a high priority. In line with our phonics scheme, children will bring home books that contain sounds they have been taught at school, so that they can practice and consolidate their recognition of new sound codes and the important skill of blending.  We ask that you support the children to practise reading these each evening at home. 

In the downloads area of our class page (below) you will be able to find useful resources, such as phonics flashcards, letter formation information and information about the broader reception curriculum. 

We will continue to communicate via email as necessary and will add information to the Tapestry app to give you a flavour of aspects of our learning each week. We also love to read your contributions to your child's journal via the app. 

As ever, please contact us with any queries or comments via the office phone, the EYFS email account ( or by simply catching us on the door after school, once all the children have been safely dismissed. 

We look forward to another fabulous term. 

Mrs Charlton and Miss Hargreaves
