Butterflies & Dragonflies


Welcome to our class page! Here you will find lots of useful information about our learning and about the things we are getting up to in Reception.


A big welcome to all our new Reception starters. We can't wait to welcome you all in September and to get to know you as we start our learning journey together.

During the first few weeks, we will be focusing on classroom routines and rules as we explore our new environment together. We will learn where to put our things when we come in, how to self register, what to do if we need the toilet or are thirsty, what areas and resources we have to play with and how to be a kind friend to others. 

Our area of focus for the half term will be 'All About Me,' looking at the book 'Peace at Last' which links nicely to home, family and routines such as bedtime. Our topic will be led by the children and their interests and we can't wait to see where their interests take us! There will be a big focus on early literacy (reading and writing) and early maths as we learn to identify our own names and initial sounds and practise counting and recognising number in numeral and quantity. 

Autumn Term 2 

Our area of focus for this half term will be the story 'The 3 Little Pigs'. The children will explore lots of planned activities realted to the story and we will also be led by the children and enhance our provision to match their interests..

The children will continue to learn thier letter sounds and will begin to blend sounds together to read words. There will also be lots of opportunities for children to practice their sounds, reading and writing within the classroom and outdoor environments.

Number and shape will also be a focus and the children will learn to match different representations of numbers. We will look at 2 and 3-D shapes and  use them to make pictures and structures, like the pig's houses.
