This week in Reception...

 What's happening this week in Reception? 

Autumn 1: Weeks 2 and 3 - WC: Monday 9th September


 Literacy and Mathematics 


For the next 2 weeks in Reception we will be doing lots of different small activities to help settle the children into their new class. There are different areas inside and outside the classroom for the children to explore. We will begin to look at some phonic sounds, high frequency words and practise writing our names. We will also see how high we can count, recognise and order numbers!


Early Learning Goals (End of Year target) for Literacy:


Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They also read some common irregular words. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read.


Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.


Early Learning Goals (End of Year target) for Maths:   


Children count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.

Shape, space and measure

Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

Thank you for all your continued support smiley



This week in phonics....


Sounds learned so far:


Sound boxes

Please practise reading the sounds and words in your sound boxes. You will also be given sound sheets to practise reading and writing each sound. 

The table showing all pink sounds, yellow words and blue words

can be found at the bottom of this page.


High Frequency Words

We will be looking at and practising to read band one of the high frequency words.
