Hello and welcome to Reception 1's page!
Welcome to our class page. Here, you will find information about what we are learning and you will be able to see some of the fun activities that we will be doing in class.
What a great start to the half term! The children have already had so much fun getting to know each other and exploring their new classroom.
Please get in touch if you have any questions - email@example.com

MONDAY - Children come into school wearing their PE kits.
WEDNESDAY - Reading Books changed.
Children should come into school with a named water bottle each day.
Since meeting you all and getting to know you (virtually via our Zoom meetings), we decided to make some changes to our classroom which will suit you even better. Here is a little glimpse as to what to expect in September. Which is your favourite part?
Our Reading Gallery
We love to read in Reception! Why not take a look at some pictures of us reading, our favourite books and even some videos of us reading!
Our Art Gallery
We love to explore and create using lots of different resources. Sometime our art is linked to a topic or book and sometimes art is one of the ways we express ourselves. We use paint, crayons, playdough, collage and natural materials to create or art. We focus on the process rather than the outcome; that way all of our work is unique, just like us!
Our YouTube Channel - Firs Primary EYFS
Videos of us reading stories are now available on our YouTube channel. You can search 'Firs Primary EYFS' or click this link to find them.

Here is an overview of what your child will be learning this half term:
End of Year Expectations
The following document is taken from the Early Years Framework and additional guidance Development Matters. All children will be taught these learning points however our curriculum is not limited to these points and will include much more.
All About Phonics
Here a link to a video made by Miss Curbishley, which gives you ideas on how to help support your child with phonics at home. These activities are play based and that is how we believe children learn best.
I understand that phonics is very complicated and the pronunciation of sounds can be quite difficult to master. The follow video is an excellent tool to help adults and children say the sounds correctly, which is crucial for reading and writing.
Please contact a member of the team if you have any questions about phonics.
I have put together a list of websites and videos to aid your child's learning at home.
