Welcome to Reception Class RH
Our topic this half term is ‘We’re Going on a Journey’. We will be travelling into space with the books Whatever Next by Jill Murphy and The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers; and going on a Bear Hunt with Michael Rosen in We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. We will be exploring the different environments in the stories and finding out a bit more about Space and Bears!
In Phonics we are following the Letters & Sounds scheme and will be building on the single sounds we learnt in Phase 2, and learning the Phase 3 digraphs (two letters that make one sound) as well as learning some new 'tricky words'. In Maths we will be following the White Rose Maths scheme, developing a deeper knowledge of numbers to 10 and learning about shapes and measure.
Take care and stay safe

See below for details of our remote learning platform- DB Primary
We will be continuing to use DB Primary: hogarth.essex.dbprimary.com for homework. This will be uploaded every Monday and must be complete by Friday. If you require a paper copy of the homework, please make sure to inform the class teacher on Monday.
The children will be required to use the username and password that was issued to them as part of their home learning pack at the end of the autumn term. It is important that children keep their username and password safe and that they do not share it with friends or family.
Once your child has logged into DB Primary they will be able to see their class homepage and the homework tab that has been set for them.
As part of the DB Primary platform, your child will be able to use a forum to keep in touch with their friends and teachers. Please discuss the safety implications of this with your child:
We hope that having access to DB Primary will be a helpful way in which you can support your child at home and that children can begin to take responsibility for furthering their own learning independently.
