Welcome to Reception Class RH
Spring Term 2020
We have started the New Year with enthusiasm and the children have returned to school raring to go! We have a new Post Office in the role play area and a new topic for this half term 'We're Going on a Journey'. We will be focusing on the books Whatever Next by Jill Murphy, The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers and We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. We will also be celebrating Chinese New Year. We have lots of exciting activities planned both inside and in our outdoor area and will be going outside in all weathers so please make sure your child is dressed for the weather.
'There is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing!'
If you would like to contribute to our topic in any way, or have any queries or concerns then please don't hesitate to come and talk to us.
& The Reception Team
Our topic this half term is ‘We're Going on a Journey’.
We will be exploring different environments and going on exciting journeys through our focus books; Whatever Next and We're Going on a Bear Hunt'. We will be celebrating Chinese New Year through maths, literacy, art and cooking and the children will be finding out which Chinese New Year animal they are! We will be issuing reading scheme books this term so please ensure your child is practicing reading these daily (or at least 3 times a week). It is wonderful how quickly the children begin to read and grow in fluency when they read daily.
Please see our topic web for more information and let us know if you can contribute to our topic in any way.
Don't forget check this page regularly for photographs and updates!

Homework is given out on a Friday and is to be returned the following Wednesday.
Please read with your child at home at least 3 times a week (daily if possible) and write a comment in their reading diary. Daily practice with an adult can increase their enthusiasm and help them progress even further.
