Reception Curriculum Overview



Hello Everyone,


Welcome to our Nursery class of 2021!

We are so pleased at how well the children are settling in to the Nursery routines. The children are learning our class rules and following instructions with support. We have had a few tears on arrival, but be assured they don't last long. 


Just a reminder that uniform should have your child's name written in to avoid any mix up with jumpers, cardigans, hats etc.

We have a very busy curriculum to follow this term which is outlined on the planning overview above. 

Our Traditional tale for this half term is 'The Three Little Pigs'. A very familiar and much loved story that we all know. Encourage your child to learn the story sequence and practice retelling the story in their own words.


Each child has chosen a storybook to take home to share with their grown ups. This is kept in their very own reading bag! We will change these books each week, so please send your child to school every day with their reading bag. Please share lots of stories at home, and if you read your child's reading book with them, make a note in their reading diary. It really helps us to get a picture of who is reading at home.


Miss. Flemming and I are really pleased that the children are becoming confident using the bathroom with some support. We do anticipate the odd accident  though, and may ask for some spare clothes to remain in Nursery.


Please make sure that your child has a good outdoor coat ready for when the weather changes. We do play out in all weathers and expect children to have appropriate footwear and clothing. Wellies are not required.


If you haven't already done so, then please join our class Dojo page and keep updated with how we are getting on in Nursery. I will post photos and messages regularly and please feel free to message me.


Let's hope we have a happy and healthy year with no Covid interruptions.


Sincere thanks for your support.

Kindest regards

Mrs. Suthern and Miss. Flemming

Hello everyone, I am so impressed with how the children have settled into Reception, they have taken on new routines in the classroom and have blown me away by how quickly and sensibly they have done this. We have also been loved getting to know your children J


We follow the EYFS curriculum for planning activities and experiences within the setting and the children have daily carpet sessions where we focus on phonics, number, stories and speaking and listening. We also consider the interests of the children and provide activities that further develop these.


We have PE every Friday and for this half term we have dance on Thursday so please bring your child's pumps in and they can stay her and handed back home at the end of every half term.


Don’t forget about homework. It is sent home every Thursday and to be returned by the following Thursday. Their reading books and reading diaries need to be brought in everyday to help us at school read with your child and change their books.


Thank you for your support, if you ever need a quick chat please don’t hesitate to ask for one,


Miss. Wilde and Mrs Bickley :)


    Phonics is the foundation for children beginning their reading journey. In Reception we follow the scheme created by Read Write Inc. Through Read Write Inc children can build on letter formation while learning to read.


    Please view the video below to see the Read Write Inc pronunciation of sounds.


    Also there is a great website called Phonics Play that helps with lots of phonics learning through games :)

    All of the children really enjoy sharing books and retelling stories.


    Please read with your child as often as you can to help them become familiar with storytelling and reading. Reception children also have reading records for you to fill in each time you read together.
