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:

Me and My Community 


Exploring Autumn (Mini Project)


'Me and My Community' supports children with settling into the new rules and routines of school and encourages them to make new friends and feel confident in their class. Children learn about being helpful, kind and thoughtful at home and at school. This project also teaches children how they are unique and special, the importance of friendship and how people in their family, school and local community are important and can help them.

When we 'Explore Autumn', the children learn about the natural changes that happen during the season of autumn, including how the weather changes, why trees lose their leaves and how wild animals prepare for winter.

In maths, we will be doing lots of practical based activities based around matching, sorting and comparing amounts and some work around pattern. 

Children will start their Read Write Inc. phonics journey this half term. This will involve an introduction to set 1 sounds and lots of practise with early reading skills such as oral blending through Fred Talk!

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.
