Knowing Me Knowing You


Welcome to Reception!


We have had a busy couple of weeks and it has been lovely meeting the children and settling them into class. They have been exploring the classroom and are beginning to get used to the routines and expectations we have in Reception.

Below I have uploaded the phase 2 tricky words and the phase 2 phonics sound mat as mentioned in the ‘Meet the Teacher’ talk. Please use these to support your child when they begin to read and write. Please also find attached, the half term topic overview and some more information about the Reception baseline assessment.


We are looking forward to sharing an exciting year with you and your child!
