Welcome to our Reception Class. 

In our class we try to make the transition from pre-school into school a smooth and happy one. We provide opportunities both indoor and outdoor for children to explore their surroundings, become self-aware and we also encourage the children to gain skills and knowledge to become confident learners. We intially focus on the personal,social and emotional development and the children's communiction and language skills as we believe they are vital to set a good foundation for the children's future learning. 

We are very lucky that this half term we will be having Wigan Music Service come into school to deliver our CHIME sessions. This session will take place on a Wednesday morning. 

This half term our research project is 'Dinosaurs'.

As we move through the year you will receive lots of information from school to explain what themes we are covering and what the children are learning in school. Our ‘Research Themes’ for this year are listed below and we will be doing lots of exciting activities to explore them. 

One of our aim's is for children to love reading. The phonics programme that we follow is Read, Write Inc. You will receive information about how we teach the children to read, including website links that will help with learning to read at home. If you have any questions at all about your child's reading please get in touch.

Reading books will be changed every Friday. Please try to read at home at least three times a week and ensure that reading books and reading diaries are in your child's bag everyday, so that they can also be heard reading in school.

Please also take a look at our video all about Read, Write Inc. You will find the link at the bottom of this page. 

Our class Christian Value is Friendship. This will be explored throughout the year. 

Our PE session is a Wednesday afternoon. Please come to school dressed in your PE kit. 

If you have any worries or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see us.

Thank you

Mrs Richardson and the Reception Team.
