Welcome to Reception! The class teachers are Miss Bouchey and Mr Bowles and our Nursery Nurses are Mrs Kasia and Miss Morgan.

During the Autumn term, we will begin phonics with the children, focusing on a specific sound each day. We will be sending two different word lists each week in the blue book: a high frequency word list and words for your child to sound out and reflect the sounds we have learned. We will be introducing guided reading this term and will be sending books home with your child towards the half term. Please send book bags on Wednesday and they will be returned on Thursday afternoons.

In mathematics we will be looking at ordering numbers, one more or less, and number formation. We will also be looking at shapes throughout the term.

Our topic this term is ourselves. In RE, we will be looking at how we are special and Baptism. Please send in a photo from your child's baptism. Do ask your child questions about what they have been learning in RE, and please look at the Wednesday Word at home with your child.

We are always looking for parent volunteers! Please do let us know if you have a skill you would like share with the children or would like to read a story. Also if you have any recycling to use for junk modeling it is always greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions or concerns please do ask one of us. For more ways to support your child at home, please look at the EYFS Parent Guide below.
