Welcome to Reception



 A typical day in Reception


As children enter the classroom they will self-register. They will have access to a range of activities to help develop their learning that will change on a daily basis.

Before playtime, we will introduce a new book every week that will link to our topic. The children will then complete an activity linked to the story and explore continuous provision.

After playtime, the children will carry on in provision before stopping for Phonics, Reading and Writing activities. We will listen to independent readers throughout the week and books will be changed on a weekly basis.

Before Lunchtime, we will read the children’s favourite stories/sing or have show and tell time as a class.

After Lunchtime, we will do counting as a class followed by a short Maths input (focusing on a different area of Maths every couple of weeks) and activities will be based around this.

The children will then have chance to explore continuous provision and use their learning in an independent way that suits their interests.

Also in an afternoon throughout the week, we will do a PE lesson and various RE activities.
