Welcome to Reception Class!
Hello everyone, welcome to our Reception class page. My name is Miss Hardman and I am the Reception class teacher. I work alongside Mrs Clayton who is our fabulous class learning support practitioner. We are both very much looking forward to supporting the children throughout their Reception year which is always a very special time for both children and parents.
On this page you will be able to see photographs of what our amazing children have been up to during their days at school. I will also keep the page updated with important information around upcoming events and how to best support your child's learning at home.
The children have all enjoyed returning to school after their Christmas break. We have started our new term by learning all about Space! The children have learnt all about our planet, Earth, and also looked closely at the moon and other planets in our solar system. Take a look at the pictures below to see what activities we have enjoyed taking part in.....
Monday 1st of December 2021 - We had lots of fun in the snow!
Week beginning 31.11.12 - We have enjoyed writing letters to Santa and becoming elves in our elf workshop.
Home reading in Reception.
Please take time to look at the PowerPoint below which explains how our home reading system works in Reception class. If you have any questions about how to best support your child's reading development, please feel free to speak to a member of staff.
Reception Curriculum Goals and Overviews
Our first focus story of the year is Owl Babies by Martin Wadell.
- We looked closely at photographs of real owls to create some wonderful, detailed paintings.
- We ordered pictures of owls by their size.
- We created some wonderful story maps – using pictures to retell the story.
- We have learnt lots of facts about owls and labelled their body parts.
- We went on a walk through the Forest to compare the habitat of an owl to our own.
Maths in Reception Class.
Autumn 1 - We are learning how to use mathematical language to compare objects.

Phonics in Reception Class
I am really proud of how well the children are progressing in their phonics lessons. Children are learning lots of sounds and how to decode simple words to read them accurately. Children have the opportunity to practise their phonics skills in their play - here are some of the wonderful activities they have taken part in.
