Hello and welcome to Reception 2’s page!
We are having so much fun in Reception; learning new things, sharing experiences, facing new challenges, making friends and growing our brains.
We use this page to share pictures and information regarding what we have been learning in class. So keep checking back for new pictures below.
We look forward to working in partnership with you as your children start their school journey.
Please get in touch if there is anything I can do to help, email@example.com

Here is our timetable of suggested ideas for the rest of this week.
We had lots fun during our final week before Christmas. Friends of Firs organised a movie and snacks, we wrote letters to Santa, had our Christmas Extravaganza, watched an online panto and even had time to squeeze in a party! Now we need to rest our brains and have fun with our families .
Children In Need Fun!
Thank you so much for all of your donations. The children learnt about why it is important to help others. The children looked great in their sports clothes and we enjoyed lots of exercise throughout the day.
Thank you to everyone who attended our Phonics and Reading Zoom. If you were unable to attend I have included the presentation below. It is a useful reference guide to the terminology and pronunciation of sounds.
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.

Growth Mindset Video
As a school, we have been working hard to help the children understand that if they work hard they can achieve their dreams. This belief starts with us in Early Years. People may look at Reception as “playing” but it is so much more than that. Every day children learn new skills which will aid them throughout school and beyond. We learn to keep trying, to change our methods, to compromise and to have pride in our achievements.
This video ... starring our very own Reception children ... shows how we can choose our learning and choose our tomorrow! We hope you enjoy it.
How to say the sounds just like us!
The order of the sounds in the video are as follows...
