Reception - 2016/17

Welcome to the Reception class page!

We had a wonderful time on our trip to Kidzania, we found out about lot's of different occupations. Our overall favourite was being a Firefighter. We got the opportunity to ride in a fire truck and we even had to put out a pretend fire. We also attended a disco, experienced what it was like to be a Doctor, a Hairdresser and attended Art School.

Here are some photos of the trip:


This term we have also been lucky enough to have been trained  by Coach Michael from QPR Football Club. He has been helping us to develop our spatial awareness, adjusting our movements to avoid obstacles and helping us to develop our ball control skills. 

During phonics we have learnt all of the Phase 2 letter sounds and we have been practising applying our phonic knowledge to blend the sounds to read words and captions and segmenting sounds to write words. If you need extra copies of the letters and high frequency words learnt so far please just ask.

Important reminders:

Home reading books

Home reading books will be changed every Monday and Thursday. Please make sure your return your books on these days to ensure they are changed.


Reception will be doing PE every Monday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a PE kit to change into on this day. They just need to bring a T-shirt, shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers or plimsolls.

Home Learning

Home Learning books will be sent home every Friday and should be brought back into class every Wednesday to share with the rest of the class. This is an important opportunity for the children to share and talk about their learning. The children are expected to choose one challenge per week to complete.
