Welcome to Reception 

Welcome to the Reception's class page

On here you will find lots of information about our weekly routines and details about the exciting learning that will be taking place both indoors and outdoors this term. 



In R.E. we follow the 'Come & See' program which is also followed by other Catholic schools in our diocese.

The 'Come & See' program allows the children to explore the life and teachings of Jesus through Bible stories, discussion, prayer and personal reflection and meditation. As with the rest of our curriculum, we ensure that the delivery of R.E. is through hands-on, play based learning and is presented in a style and manner that is meaningful to the children.




We follow the Ruth Miskin 'ReadWriteInc' phonics scheme in Foundation Stage. Now that we have learned all our initial sounds, many of us have moved on to reading 'ditties' and writing simple sentences. Some of us are continuing to practise our blending to read and write simple words. Help us at home with the 'words for blending', the 'alien words' and the reading books we bring home.

  • We use White Rose Mathematics in order to encourage mathematical awareness and understanding through enjoyable, game based learning. 
  • We aim to give children a secure foundation in mathematics and ensure they're prepared for Year 1 with a selection of creative, free-flow, and adult-led activities and games. We focus on concrete or 'doing' maths before moving to representational and abstract mathematics.
