Autumn Term 2015

Welcome to our Reception page!


We hope you have had a lovely summer and are ready for a new school term. Reception children have a lot of exciting things to look forward to across the year.


Reception Topics

This year, EYFS are adopting the Learning Challenge Curriculum for topic work alongside the rest of the school. Children will be given a learning challenge question to develop their understanding of a range of subjects. ‘Reflection videos’ will also be made to demonstrate their learning journey. Topics this year include:

  • What do I know about me?

  • Why are there so many leaves on the ground?

  • How can we help Cinderella have a ball?

  • Are all minibeasts scary?

  • Should Goldilocks say sorry?


Reception routines

World Books - Monday. Children share their news on a Monday within our family groups.

PE day - Monday. Please ensure PE kit is in school at all times incase of any last minute changes with timetable.

Phonics books - Friday. Phonics sounds and tricky words are added to children’s books each Friday so please ensure these are in school.


Reading books

Reading books can be changed as and when required. There is a reading basket in our cloakroom, please encourage your child to place their book and reading record in the basket when it needs to be changed. A reminder to parents/carers - please write a comment in your child’s reading record.

Thank you.

Mrs Kirby and Mrs Johnstone
