Welcome to our Reception Class.

In our class we provide opportunities both indoor and outdoor for children to explore their surroundings, become self-aware and we also encourage the children to gain skills and knowledge to become confident learners.

Our ‘Research Themes’ for this year are listed below. We will be doing lots of exciting activities to explore them.

We are currently learning about 'Under the Sea'. The children have already done some fantastic research about underwater creatures and Miss Bentley has really enjoyed reading all the facts.

Our class Christian Value is Friendship. We encourage the children to spend time in our class reflection area throughout the week, promoting our school Christian Values. 

On a Thursday morning we are grateful to have the team from Wigan Athletic with us in Reception to teach our PE lessons. We always have lots of fun and learn new skills each week. 

The majority of pupils are currently working within Phase 3 Phonics.

Please see the video below to see how we sound out each of the 42 sounds in our Letters and Sounds lessons.

Can I encourage you at home to work with your children on our school handwriting. The children are encouraged to use this on a daily basis within their writing. 

If you have any worries or concerns please do not hesitate to come and see us.

Thank you

Miss Bentley and the Reception Team.
