We will help and encourage your child to:

  • Count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20.
  • Place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number.
  • Use quantities and objects to help you to add and subtract two single-digit numbers.
  • Count on or back to find the answer.
  • Solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.
  • Use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems.
  • Recognise, create and describe patterns.
  • Explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.




We will help and encourage your child to:

  • Use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds.
  • Write some irregular common words
  • Write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others.

Important Information

  • PE day is on a Monday – Please ensure your child have a full PE kit in school every Monday pm. Your child’s PE kit can be left on their coat peg. We will send it home each half term for it to be washed.
  • Please ensure your child is prepared for all weather conditions (suncream, coats, gloves etc).
  • Please bring your reading packet to school every day. It is beneficial that your child reads with you throughout the week. When you do please sign their Twiggler and we will do the same. 

In Reception we like to keep busy and sometimes we like to get messy too! So don’t worry about a bit of mud, water or paint on your uniform, it means we have been learning and having lots of fun too!
