Reception W 2021 - 2022

Mrs Walley

In the EYFS we challenge children to become independent learners and critcial thinkers through our continuous provision and targeted learning challenges. We are very excited to share all the amazing things we do in school with you. Please check out our page for regular updates and photos.

Welcome to Reception 1 where a love of learning is at the heart of everything we do! The teacher in our classroom is Mrs Walley, along with Mrs Grayson and we have the support of some fantastic teaching assistants, Mrs McGuinness, Miss Hibbert, Mrs Ashley, Mrs Tarr and Mrs Borg-Fennech.


Our class saint is St. Joseph, he was the husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus. St Joseph was a carpenter or woodworker. The Gospel of Matthew calls him a “righteous man,” meaning he was an observant Jew who obeyed God's law. On St Joseph's feast day the children in Reception will dress up as people who help us in our community.


Special events we will be celebrating this half term:- 

We are growing to be Eloquent and truthful

Epiphany-6th January

Chinese New Year- 1st February

Presentation of Jesus- 15th February

This half term we will be learning about Traditonal tales. We are exploring stories, focussing on our key text 'The Three Little Pigs'. We will also be learning about the Epiphany and places where people go to celebrate such as a church. We will be working together to construct and make homes for the three little pigs. Our weekly newsletter will keep you up to date with our weekly leanring activities.

Please see Medium term planning below for more information.

Below are copies of our word boxes and high frequency words.
Use your flashcards to make and read the words in the word boxes.
Practise reading and writing the high frequency words. There's a lot on the sheet so start with I, the, to and build up from there.
