Welcome to Reception!

What are we learning?

Understanding the World

This half term we are learning about our family. We are going to talk about the people that are in our family and any places that are special. We will also look at the jobs that people have in our family and the community.

Expressive Arts and Design

The children are going to be creating images of their families using different materials. We will also be looking at how we can show the different emotions that we might feel at different points in the day.

Communication and Language

The children will be looking at the key parts of the book such as, the front cover, spine and the blurb. We will introduce and sing new songs and rhymes.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

This term we are going to think about our own feelings and the feelings of others. We will look at how to moderate our feelings and how to manage conflict.

Physical Development

We are going to be making full use of our outdoor area to develop gross motor skills. We will focus on running, jumping, balancing and cycling.


The children are going begin their phonics lessons this half term. We will spend time saying the sounds and blending these sounds to say words. We will also be trying to write our name and naming each letter. We will be reading ‘Hello Friend’ by Rebecca Cobb and ‘Amazing’ by Steve Anthony.


The children are going work on numbers to five this half term. We will look at counting, writing the number and adding two numbers to make the total. We will also be spending time looking at one more and one less than numbers to five.
