Welcome to Reception!

Learning in Reception
In Reception, our learning revolves around play and children will be given the opportunity to explore and investigate learning with independence.  As part of our continuous provision, the children are given set times throughout the day where they can independently choose which areas they would like to learn in: both classrooms, shared area or outdoor learning environment.  To learn more about how children learn in reception watch our video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AUl3KGRebU&t=30s

Reception are extremely luckily to have a very large outdoor learning environment exclusively for the Reception children!

Here you will find our overview of the learning that will take place in Reception

One very important activity you can do is read with your child every day, including doing their word cards. Remember when you do the word cards to use them as flashcards but also to try and build sentences with them. You can record this on Tapestry or access bugclub. Bug club gives you access to electronic boos.  You can sign onto Bug Club using your username the teacher provided at www.activelearnprimary.co.uk  (Password: read School Code: k3xx)  School reading books should be left in school on Friday’s and new books will be issued on Mondays.


Encourage your child to read and write simple words and sentences using their phonics each day. You can find out more about how we teach phonics at the Crescent on the powerpoint below

We are also now able to share our Phonics Play log-in details with you which has lots of fun phonics games for your child to play at home. Visit www.phonicsplay.co.uk and type in the log-in details. Then click resources and select the relevant phase for your child (most of reception are on Phase 2). If you are unsure of the relevant phase please contact your class teacher through Class Dojo.
