Welcome to Reception! 

On this page we will let you know what your child is learning about in school and give you ideas for ways to help at home. We continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and if you want to know more about how and what your child will be learning click on this link: Parents guide to the EYFS


This week we will be themed upon 'Pirates' ~ ooh arrr! We will be...

sharing the story of 'The Pirates Next Door' by Johnny Duddle. We'll be writing messages to send in a bottle and practising our verbal instructional skills to see if a partner can find the hidden treasure. You could share the story here: The Pirates Next Door.

sorting buried treasure coins. The children will have to read the words on the golden coins and sort them into real or nonsense words by placing them in either the treasure chest or the bin.

walking the plank! to practise our number recognition of numbers up to 20 and beyond and to practise counting forwards and backwards in tens.

using our imagination to tell our own pirate story. We will be using lots of props and our story language skills to create our own pirate story to share with friends.

designing a boat that can float. We will design and construct a 'pirate ship' by choosing from materials including corks, polysterene pieces, elastic bands, sponges and tooth picks! We will then be able to test our boats in the water to see if they are fit for purpose.  

singing and dancing pirate style! We will be singing pirate songs and learning a new 'pirate' wake up, shake up routine. Have a look and try it yourself ...Jake and the Neverland Pirates

Every week in class all children take part in guided reading sessions (in small groups) with their teachers where we focus on the skills they need to learn next to improve their reading. We would like to say a big thankyou to all the families who help their children practice their reading book at home. Together we are helping so many of our children to become great readers who really love stories.  


Have a great week from the Reception team smiley
