This week in Reception

Week beginning 19th October 2020


This week in phonics we have learnt the sounds  t   i   n   p. We have sent home a new letter strip for your child's 'fred frog' today. Please check in your child's book bag, so you can practise the sounds at home.

We have also started to learn the '45 Reception High Frequency' words. Each week we will focus on 5 new words in school. Today, we have sent home a 'postbox' and the 5 words that we have learnt in school this week. Please practise at home so that your child learns to read these words confidently by sight alone.


Maths this week has been about number recognition and we focussed on numbers 11 and 12 during our visits to Ten Town. 


Next week is half term. We can't believe that the children have been at school for 6 weeks already! Wishing you all a safe and fun filled week. We will see you back at School on Monday 2nd November.

Week beginning 12th October

This week we have introduced our daily phonics sessions to the children. We have learnt the sounds: 

m   a    s   d.  Your child will be bringing home a 'Fred Frog' to help them practise the sounds at home. 


Our visits to Ten Town have continued this week. We have met Nina 9, Tia 10 and learnt about the zero pond! If you asked for access to Ten Town at home you should have all received your home access logins. We hope you enjoy Ten Town together with your child.


Our 'Reception Curriculum Meeting' will be available for you to view tomorrow (Friday 16th October). We hope that you find the information useful but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. 


Week Beginning 5th October 2020

It's been another wet week for us in Reception! Lots of rainy days. If you have any old wellington boots at home or umbrella's we would much appreciate them in Reception so we can explore muddy puddles on wet days! 

The children are loving their visits to Ten Town each day. This week we have met Fiona Five, Seal Six, Sir Seven and Eric Eight. If you have asked for a Ten Town login then we hope to send these home towards the end of next week.

We have been continuing with our Phase 1 phonics work, listening to and discriminating lots of sounds. Next week we will begin to teach the children individual letter sounds and how to use these sounds to read words. More information to follow next week.
