Reception

Welcome to Reception!

Our teacher is Miss Riordan and our teaching assistant is Mrs Diegnan.

As we begin our Reception journey we will be settling into our new environment, forming relationships and learning new routines.

‘Magical Me’ – This half-term we will be identifying the similarities and differences between ourselves and others, learning about what makes each of us special. We will also be thinking about people who help us at home, at school and in the wider community.

‘Let’s Celebrate!’ – Next half-term we will be learning about different festivals. We will be thinking about how and why they are celebrated, sharing our own experiences along the way.

In Phonics we will be following Letters & Sounds, with elements of Read, Write, Inc.  We will be learning our Phase 2 sounds and will begin to practise reading and writing simple words.

In Maths we will be developing our knowledge and understanding through activities such as: recognising & ordering numbers, counting objects reliably, naming & describing 2D shapes, and ordering objects by size – to name a few!
