Welcome to Reception Class



Spring Term 2 2021


Welcome back! Last term we managed to cram lots of learning in even with all the disruptions and challenges. The 'Once Upon a Time' theme obviously inspired some fantastic learning experiences looking at home learning photos and work. Children's Mental Health Awareness Week and Love themed activities were also amazing! Thank you to all our parents and carers for supporting children brilliantly with their home learning and using our Facebook Class page to share, keep updated and stay in touch. Teams sessions have also been a great way to see how children are getting on and it has been lovely to see their smiley faces.  


We continue to work on recognising , using and applying phonics sounds and reading and writing more fluently and independently through daily phonics and reading and writing challenges . We  continue to work hard in maths, working with number , numerical patterns and developing problem solving and reasoning skills during our daily maths challenges, as well as having lots of opportunities to explore, create and learn through continuous  play time. Lots of our learning and activities this term will be inspired by our 'Beautiful World' theme, learning about and developing an understanding about the world around us and how we can take care it., looking at seasonal changes, new life and Easter.


We continue to spend lots of time outside and our classroom spaces continue to be well ventilated so please can you ensure children at school have a school jumper and it might be worth them wearing a vest or extra layers on chilly days.


Access to home learning, activities, resources and activities continue to be uploaded each week to our  'Little Smarties' Webpage 

We continue to use our Class Group Webpage of on our school Facebook page

which is a super way to keep updated with Knightlow News and  our own class group page is a great way to show WOW moments  of learning that your child has done at home as well as a super way for us to keep you updated too. 


Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns or would like to offer your help or support in any way

Thank you 

Mrs Cathy Amos-Simpson 

Reception Class Teacher
