Reception 2022 - 2023


RL: Mrs Long, Mrs Hodges and Mrs McCobb RSB: Mrs Bryce, Mrs O'Brien and Mrs Ashcroft


Welcome to our Reception class page.

Below is an overview of some of the exciting topics we will be covering during the summer term.


In the summer term, we are planning to explore our local area, where we live and how we move around our local area and beyond. Some of the books we will enjoy are The Naughty Bus and You Choose. We will also continue to look at the changes we observe as spring turns to summer. 


P.E. days will continue to be on a Thursday and a Friday . Thursday is our outdoor slot and children should come in their outdoor P.E uniform (plain, unbranded black joggers and sweatshirt, plus school team coloured T-shirt). Full details can be found on our website. Our indoor P.E session is currently on a Friday.

Outdoor learning

As we move into summer, we will be learning outdoors as much as possible. Please ensure your child wears long-lasting sun protection before they come into school and brings a named sun cap/hat. 

Reading homework

In Reception, the children are continuing to work towards becoming confident, fluent readers, who also show a good understanding of the texts they read. They will continue to bring home their Read Write Inc book and another text. Please write a comment in their reading journal.

Additional information

We are looking forward to our RWInc parents' information meetings. Please come along to one of the following sessions to hear how how the children are taught phonics and ways in which you can further support them at home:

  • Tuesday 26th April 2:15 - 3:00pm
  • Tuesday 3rd May 5:30 - 6:00pm


Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or queries.

Best wishes,
Mrs Bryce and Mrs Long
