Curriculum Overview
 
A summarisation of what we will be learning in reception class can be viewed on our curriculum overview document below.
Our Daily Routine 
 
In Reception, we start every day with a warm welcome by Miss Padfield and Mrs Trent and then we sign in using our own name cards.  This helps us to practise writing our names!  
 
We have a selection of table top activities to explore whilst we settle in with our friends and family, preparing for the school day to begin.
 
When the bell rings at 8.50am, we sit on the carpet for the register and see who are going to be the 'Special Helpers' for the day!  This is very exciting as we all love being helpful! After the register, we line up ready for Collective Worship.  The morning session is our Literacy time, which goes on until 10.00am.  
 
10.00am until 10.15am is our 'Snack Time' and the special helpers serve up our fruit and milk.  They always do a great job!
 
On a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we have 'snack maths' too.  This is a short maths task that we do with Miss Padfield whilst we eat our fruit and drink our milk.
 
10.15-10.30am is play time! We go out onto the big playground with the rest of the school and play with our friends or play games set up by the 'playground pals'.
 
10.30-11.30am is our Numeracy time.  We have a whole class input and then work in different groups with Miss Padfield or Mrs Trent.
 
11.30-11.55am is phonics time.  We are learning our phonics using 'Read Write Inc' and we are split up into seperate groups for this session.  
 
12.00-1.00pm is lunch time! We always say our prayer together before we go.
 
After lunch, we spend time learning about lots of other subjects, including; science, RE, ICT, Art and more!  
 
 
At the end of everyday we do 'Storycise'.  This are stories read by Miss Padfield but there are lots of different movements that we have to do whilst listening.  It is very fun!
 
We have time for a story and then we go home at 3.15pm!
