SpringTerm 2022

Welcome to the Reception page on the school website! We are Elms (Mrs Vile & Mrs Partridge) and Oaks (Mrs Sowden & Mrs Partridge).

 Learning and sequencing the story…making puppets…using the language of comparison…making porridge…constructing furniture for the Three Bears…writing a ‘sorry’ letter from Goldilocks…singing ‘When Goldilocks went to the house of the bears


Below are some photos of our new theme.


We will upload a weekly home learning letter to this website. This contains information about weekly learning and any home learning.

Websites to support your child's learning at home


Maths Early Years Games such as Teddy Numbers, Underwater Counting, Ladybird spots, Helicopter Rescue, Caterpillar Ordering are great for ordering, sequencing and counting numbers to ten. These will also support in recognising digits.

The Numberblocks games and activities on the CBeebies website are also good.



Phonicsplay is a really useful resource for phonics.

The buried treasure game is great for learning letters and sounds. (We are starting on phase two).

Also it's worth looking on Picnic on Pluto and Dragon's Den games.



Letters and Sounds website has many useful free downloadable resources including sets of letter, decodable words and captions that you maybe interested in.
