Welcome to Reception 

Our team in Reception are Miss Phillips, Mrs Abel, Mrs Hirst, Mrs Crowther and Mrs Marshall.

Hello Reception rockets,

Our topic for this half term is... DINOSAURS! I know we have a class full of dinosaur lovers so how could we not learn about them (even though I'm sure it'll be learning more from the children on this topic!) 

Obviously things are going to look a little different as we are remote learning unless children are in school as a key-worker child. We will do our very best to replicate a normal school timetable with quality learning. Ideas for Continuous Provision are below. Each week's timetable will be posted here. 

Some of our main focuses are: 

Literacy/Topic- Dinosaurs 

Maths- Revising calendar and time and addition and subtraction, numbers within 15 and grouping and sharing. For extra resources to support at-home learning, please see

Phonics- Set 2 sounds and red words 

RE- Celebrations, Chinese New Year, Valentines Day and Lent 

PE- Cognitive skills and balance 

PE will not be able to go ahead like normal, so we will find other ways of incorporating it into the curriculum which is more accessible. 

Stay safe, 

Miss Phillips
