Welcome to Reception - The Royals class

Welcome back to the summer term

We will start by revisiting class routines and expectations and setting goals for ourselves by the end of the year.

We will learn about stories such as The Tiny Seed, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Room on the Broom. We will retell them in a variety of ways. We will work on our writing skills using sounds we know, leaving finger spaces between words and putting a full stop at the end of each sentence. 

As the term progresses, we will observe the changing seasons.

In maths we will develop our learning about number sense to numbers beyond 10. We will use ten frames to build larger numbers and complete simple calculations and start to use words relating to measures.

In phonics we will learn new sounds and sight words. We will blend and split three, four and then five sounds in words to help us with reading and writing. Please make sure you read regularly at home – it really does make so much difference to your child’s attainment.

As part of our early years curriculum we have free access to the classroom and also our garden. Children will need to have suitable clothing with them at all times. This includes a good quality coat to provide both warmth and a waterproof later, a pair of waterproof trousers and a pair of wellies.

All of our work is shared in an online learning journey. We use a platform called Tapestry. Staff in school and grown ups from home can share achievements of the children. Please do share special things with us from home too.


If you ever have any questions or concerns please do ask as staff in EYFS are always happy to help.
