Welcome to the Reception class page!

This term we are learning about The Environment. We are looking forward to finding out about our local environment and how we can care for the insects and creatures that come into our garden.

During the term we are going to be reading traditional fairy tales. So far, we have read The Three Little Pigs. Attached you will find a vocabulary list of vocabulary used in the story and alternative words to introduce new vocabulary. Maybe you could visit your local library and borrow a copy of the book or even a different fairy tale.

This term in other areas of learning we will be doing lots of creative projects, cooking, baking, constructing, making and exploring number and quantities. Please come into our class to see our wonderful learning on display and check back onto this page to see what we have done so far.

Important reminders:

Home reading books

Home reading books will be changed every Monday and Thursday. Please make sure your return your books on these days to ensure they are changed.


Reception will be doing PE every WEDNESDAY afternoon. Please ensure your child has a PE kit to change into on this day. They just need to bring a T-shirt, shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers or plimsolls.

Home Learning

Home Learning books will be sent home every Friday and should be brought back into class every Wednesday to share with the rest of the class. This is an important opportunity for the children to share and talk about their learning. The children are expected to choose one challenge per week to complete.
