Welcome to Reception Class 


To keep up to date with what your children are up to, make sure you have logged into our classroom dojo. This will give you regular updates of what the children have been up to day to day. There will also be reminders for anything such as trips, home learning and other events happening in school. 

The reception year is a significant year of school, for both our children and parents as it forms the foundation of your child’s primary education. 
At St Francis we offer a combination of adult and child-led learning. Lots of our learning is through play, where the children can develop their personal, social and emotional skills. They learn to investigate the world around them both physically and imaginatively. The children benefit from having their own outdoor learning space where they can explore, imagine and create together. 
Reading is very important to us; listening to stories and rhymes feeds children’s imagination and builds their vocabulary. Daily phonic sessions introduce children to phonics to help them develop reading and writing in a fun and engaging way. 
Much of our maths is practical and encourages questioning and exploration as well as introducing key concepts through a range of resources. This helps the children to develop a solid understanding of number and other mathematical concepts in an active and enjoyable way. We have introduced ‘Numberblocks’ this year which has been a great way of engaging the children in maths and making it exciting for them.
