On this page you will find all sorts of useful information about our class. You will find examples of children's learning, our themes for learning and information relating to class organisation and key dates.
The staff working in Reception F and throughout Reception are: Miss Fitzpatrick, Miss Houldsworth, Miss Wilkinson, Miss Wilson and Mrs Alderson.
Whenever you have any questions about school and your child, please speak to a member of the reception team. If you need to speak to the class teacher, or a member of the reception team at the start or end of the day, please do so. Alternatively you can telephone the school office asking to speak to Miss Fitzpatrick, or send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Children enjoy learning through play, and often talk about their learning as play. Learning in reception is accessed through real, meaningful experiences. This provides inspiration, challenge and ideas for future learning. Self- initiated play and adult led and directed learning, supports children in further developing areas of interest and ensures access to a wide range of opportunities. We look forward to sharing all of this with you, in part, through this class page. Please also visit your child's Tapestry account.

Home Learning Projects - Together we can make a difference!
Each week we will upload learning project ideas to the reception class page. The project plans have loads of ideas for how to help your child to have fun and continue to learn during the school closure. There are links to webpages in each section of the project plans. Click on the underlined text in blue to activate the link. Take inspiration from the uniqueness of each day - the weather, practical jobs at home (cooking, cleaning, gardening...) the ideas you and your child have and the many online ideas shared on community pages. Have you made a rainbow, or a heart to display in the window of your home? This idea is a popular one on community pages, providing something for children to look for if you go out for a walk locally. Please keep in touch via Tapestry - we will be keeping an eye on any learning adventures you share with us and can continue to add comments to your posts.
Take care and have fun in your new classrooms.
The focus of our learning is to develop children's knowledge and awareness of shapes in the environment. By exploring the characteristics of everyday objects and shapes in a variety of ways, we intend to develop exciting and memorable learning journeys. The knowledge organiser for this half term will be attached before the end of the first school week back after half term.
The Early Learning Goals (ELGs) are the goals or targets children are expected to achieve at the end of their Reception year. They will be working towards these goals throughout the Early Years Foundation Stage. There are 17 ELGs across all the areas of learning as shown in the document below. Please also find a helpful document with activity suggestions for you to support your child with their learning at home. There is also a letter formation document attached so that your child can practice writing letters at home.
Here are the rhymes we strive for every child in reception to be able to recall by the time they leave reception, if not before!
Here is a copy of the tricky words we focus on in reception.
