In Reception we learn through a topic-based approach in which we incorporate a variety of practical, hands on activities to support children’s learning. We also provide trips so that children can have first-hand experiences. Learning is fun.

Our PE days are on Tuesday and Wednesday. Your child will need to have their PE kit in school all week as we may need to change our PE days sometimes. If your child wears earrings or any other jewellery please remember to remove these on PE days. Please remember to label all of your child’s clothing.
Learning Log homework is given out on a Thursday and needs to be handed back to your child's class teacher by the following Tuesday.
Every Thursday your child will also receive a phonics task sheet. This informs you which letters and phonemes (sounds) we have being focusing on in the week and it will include a short task for you to complete with your child.
Your child will bring a new reading book home every week; these books will accompany the Universal Phonics teaching that goes on in the classroom. Please can you hear your child read at least four times a week and write a comment about how your child got on every time you hear them read in the jungle record book.
Your child will also have the opportunity to change their class library book once a week.

As your Child’s parents, we know that you too will be seeing your child develop at home. We would like you to share these developments at home with us by recording some things that they have achieved or that they were unable to do before on the observation sheets we send home. This is an on-going process, so please ask your child’s class teacher for more observation sheets if you need them. We look forward to hearing about all the fantastic achievements your child has made.
In addition, our Supporting your child's learning section offers plenty of opportunity to learn through play and practice our ICT skills.
We hope you find this information useful in supporting your child's learning at home, but if you would like us to include further details, please email the office:firstname.lastname@example.org or complete a contact form on the website (Contact Us)
