Reception 2023 - 2024

Mrs Upton


Welcome to Reception's Class Page!

Mrs.Upton is the Class Teacher and Miss Fishwick and Mrs Moncrief are the Teaching Assistants. 

This half term, our big question is 'What is there to celebrate?'. We will be learning about an array of celebrations and different ways that people celebrate. Please see the parent leaflet below for more inormation about what we will be learning. We welcome any parents who want to come and talk about their experiences of special celebrations, particularly those that the children may be less familiar with.

Phonics and Early Maths are of vital importance  and will be taught daily.

We have access to outdoors as well as indoors daily, so please make sure your child has appropriate clothing for all weathers. 

PE is on a  Monday and Wednesday; please can you send your child in PE kit on these days.

The children are beginning their reading journey and some have started bringing reading books home. Please make sure that once this happens, you read regularly with your child at home and record using Boom Reader - these comments really help us to know how your child is progressing. Your child should now bring their book bag into school every day. The powerpoint to support reading at home (titled Phonic Meeting) is attached at the bottom of this page.

Home learning will be set on a Friday and communicated through Seesaw.

Please make sure you have School Spider downloaded for communication, Seesaw for Learning Journeys and Boom Reader for online reading records. 

See below for link to the parent leaflet, with information about our learning this half term.

If you ever have any questions or queries, please email .
