Reception 2018 - 2019


 Teacher: Miss H Ledsham

Teaching Assistant: Mrs R Green 

Welcome to Reception!

Welcome to our Reception Class page, where we will keep you up to date with the children's learning and share important information, events and photographs with you.  We aim to provide a wonderful learning environment for the children in the Early Years Foundation Stage that is full of nuture, fun and engagement. 



Please tell the team if you have any worries or concerns.  We are always available to talk about your child, their learning, progress and well-being.  We look forward to getting to know you and your child as they begin their first year half term in school.


Our Topic this half term is 'All About Me' and 'Fairy/Traditional Tales'.

This half term we will talking and sharing information about ourselves and our family.  We will also read Fairytales such as 'The Gingerbread Man' and complete various activities linked to this story such as making gingerbread men in the playdough area. We will learn how to retell the story of 'The Gingerbread Man' to support the children's oral retelling and understanding of a familiar story.

Our Learning

During September, baseline assessments will be carried out to ensure that accurate judgements are made about all children.  This will then inform future activities and classroom provision, which will also link to the interests of the children.

In Maths the children will be learning how to recognise numbers to 10 and match numeral to quantity.  We will also be learning the names of 2D shapes and how to make patterns with these shapes.


The Way, the Truth and the Life

'God's World'

The RE scheme we follow at St Luke's Catholic Primary School is 'The Way, The Truth and The Life, which is taught in every class.  This term we will be learning about 'Gods World', as well as having worship time and prayers embedded  into our daily routine.



A slot in the hall will be allocated soon.  Please make sure your child has a PE bag in school by the 24th September if they have not brought one in already.


Reading Books

After baseline assessments are complete your child will be given a book to take home along with their reading log.  Books will be changed on a Tuesday and a Friday.   Please make sure you are reading with your child at home and make a comment in their reading diary.  If you wish you keep a book a little longer you can keep the book until the next Friday or Tuesday.


Not forgetting to mention....

Please ensure that your child bring a named water bottle into school everyday and if you haven't done so already, please could you provide your child with a pair of wellies to keep in school for the year.  We will be using the field aspart of our outdoor classroom regularly and want the children to be prepared!


Assessment and Learning Journeys

To document our learning in Reception, we use the online learning journey 'Learning Book'.

You can view your child's learning at any time, on any device, using your email address and password that you were given at the beginning of the year. We can reset this at any time, if needed!  The website address is www.learningbook.co.uk

Not only can you view your child's learning but you can also add in your own images and comments to share what learning has been taking place at home. We love celebrating these moments in school and they demonstrate the progress that your child is making.


Kind regards

Miss Ledsham
