Miss Kelly

Welcome to Reception!



Welcome to Reception! We will be having lots of fun exploring our new classroom and getting to know our new friends.

The first story that we are learning about is Harry and his Bucketful of Dinosaurs, Harry’s favourite thing is dinosaurs! We will be discussing what our favourite things are as well as drawing and painting them! The children will also be practicing writing their name every morning, please encourage your child to do this at home too. We are very pleased to see that many children can already write their names, we are therefore working on writing our surnames and letter formation. 

Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs (Harry and the Dinosaurs): Whybrow, Ian, Reynolds, Adrian, Reynolds, Adrian:  9780140569803: Books

The children have been showing us their amazing counting skills! We are now encouraging them to recognise numerals 1-5 and beyond, please encourage your children to look and name the numbers around them at home – these could be on your front door, bus numbers and prices in the supermarket.

In RE, we will be talking about what makes us special, appreciating and celebrating how we are all different! We will also learn about our school’s Mission Statement ‘Be the Good Soil’ and discuss how we can be ‘The Good Soil’, every day, here at St Peters.



We would like to again stress the importance of reading with your child at home, we can see the progress the children are making form reading at home, so please continue to allow your child to read their book to you or an older sibling.
