Reception – Mrs Johnson/Mrs Robinson 22/23

Welcome to Reception

Our Learning

There are 19 bright and lively children in our class. They are settling in well and getting to know the rules and routines. The staff working in Reception are Mrs Thompson, Mrs Johnson/Mrs Robinson, Miss Dinsdale and Mr Osmond.


Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Could the children please come to school in their full P.E. kits on those days.

Home Reading

Initially the children bring home wordless books to practise turning pages, looking at the pictures and telling a story. When the children are ready, they will bring home books with words as they begin to blend. Once the children move to Ditties, the children will bring home another book that will match their Read Write Inc level. We encourage children to read at least 5 times a week at home and would like parents/carers to sign the children’s yellow reading record.

Our learning

Mornings are very structured in Reception and consist of Read Write Inc, a vocabulary session based on a nursery rhyme or story and then maths. We follow the White Rose curriculum. The children follow a circuit of activities which are all very practical and play based.  Afternoons are less structured and this is the time for the children to use the provision, both indoors and out, and take part in small group activities.
