Welcome to Reception - RG

Welcome to RG (Reception)

The class Teacher is Miss Gardiner, who is supported by Miss Chapman.


We want to wish a warm welcome to all our new and returning parents and families. We are looking forward to a very busy and exciting year together. 


Our topics for this year are as follows:


Autumn 1: Are you my friend?

Autumn 2: Will you read me a story?

Spring 1: Is it shiny?

Spring 2: Do cows drink milk?

Summer 1: Why do ladybirds have spots?

Summer 2: Can we explore it?


Literacy this year will be taught through Talk for Writing, a very effective scheme that helps children learn to write through a love of story telling. Maths will be a mix of pattern and shape, alongside a number of the week. (A link can be found below to some activities to try at home).

Our phonics scheme is Read Write Inc, and will be taught daily throughout the year in order to support children's reading. PE will be taught every other week on a Friday alongside other foundation subjects. Due to a lot of parents purchasing PE kits over the summer, we have decided to let those who have them change in to their kit.


Home learning journals will go out on a Friday and are due back the following Wednesday.


Your children's learning will be shared through tapestry. If you need support accessing this, please come see me. Alternatively please see the guide belowsmiley
