Reception B

My name is Miss Craig and I am very excited to be teaching in Reception B this year!

Welcome to Reception's class page. This is where you will some find key information and current learning the children are completing at the moment.

We encourage positive attitudes towards learning and school life and we love to watch your child's individual achievements blossom throughout the year. 

A main focus for Reception, this year, is Reading. You will hear all staff and children talk about reading daily. We have high expectations at our school and it is our goal to ensure your child is able to read before they leave Reception. Therefore, we expect your child to read at home every night to help give them the best start to their school life.

If you need to contact us for any reason, please don't hesitate to come and see somebody in our team.

Here are some ideas for you to do at home with your child.


Days of the week/ Months of the year- Practise saying the days of the week and order of them each day, along with months of the year. This can be done by writing the date when completing homework, singing songs or just discussing the date each day. 


Name writing- Your child can practise writing their name everyday. Once they can spell their first name start to practise their surname too. 


Cooking- Let your child be more involved in cooking or baking. They can help you chop, mix and dish up. They could also write down and order the recipe. 


Maths-  This link will take you Top Marks counting games for reception children.


Child yoga- This is a great way to relax and be calm if your child starts to get restless. There are many yoga videos for children on YouTube. Here is a great breathing exercise video-


Songs- There are many songs we sing as much as possible in Reception. Here are some songs you could sing everyday.
