Reception 2023 - 2024

Mrs Fortune

Welcome to Reception 2023/24

At the end of each week we will update the website with key information about the following week. This may include upcoming activities, events and information about learning opportunities in Reception. Each week we will post activities that you can participate in at home to help your child with their learning. These will be posted in the colour green. We will also inform you of what we will be teaching in mathematics, Literacy and the wider EYFS curriculum. We aim to share lots of photographs and images of children learning so that we can work as a team and promote excellent home-school links.

Web Blogs

Please visit the 'Web Blogs' section below to view lots of photographs and images of the activities that your child has been participating in each week.


Please bring a pair of wellies and a waterproof suit or jacket and trousers into school all clearly labelled. We will be doing 'Outdoor Learning' sessions in our copse each Wednesday afternoon.

Outdoor trainers should also be brought into school so that we can do the mile run duirng the week. We aim to do the run at least twice a week. A pair of black pumps should also be brought into school for indoor PE sessions. Please could these all be named. On PE days (Tuesday and friday) the children should come to school in their PE kits. We will change their footwear for each session. These sessions will start on Tuesday 19th September.

Reading Books and Phonics Books

On Mondays and Thursdays the children will need to make sure that their yellow reading diary is in school and has been signed as well as their reading books returned. We will change RWI reading books on Mondays and picture books on Thursdays. The yellow phonics homework book will be collected in every Wednesday and a new homework given on Thursday. Please could you support your child with their homework and help them to complete it as it supports the sounds and blending activities that we do in our sessions each week and helps them to consolidate their understanding.
