Welcome to Reception

We hope you enjoy visiting our Reception class page which shows the exciting learning that takes place both inside and outside of our classroom. Click on the links below and take a look at the photographs to see what we've been up to.  Please follow us on Twitter @Canon_Reception for daily updates and reminders.


This half term, we will be following the Cornerstones Curriculum to deliver the topics:

Dangerous Dinosaurs


Puddles and Rainbows (Mini Project)


'Dangerous Dinosaurs' is an exciting project that teaches children about the different animals that roamed Earth millions of years ago and how they are related to animals that live on Earth today.

Our mini project 'Puddles and Rainbows' teaches children about the weather that happens during spring and allows them to explore natural phenomena, including rainbows. It supports them to explore colour in the natural world.

In maths, we will be doing lots of practical based activities based around numbers up to 10, number bonds, addition and subtraction and comparing capactiy, weight, length and height. 

Children will continue their Read Write Inc. phonics journey this half term. This will involve reviewing set 1 sounds, an introduction to set 2 sounds and lots of practise with early reading skills such as oral blending through Fred Talk and reading CVC words and simple sentences.

Purple Mash log ins have been sent home for your children to access home learning tasks. If you need your child's log in details, please ask a member of staff.

MiniMash: We encourage children to explore MiniMash at home as well as in the classroom, and try out different activities linked to learning across the curriculum. We also occasionally set tasks on Minimash for the children to complete.
