Red Class - Reception 

Welcome to our Class page!

Our teachers are Mrs Moore, Mrs Richardson and Mrs File.


This Summer Term our topic ‘Into the Woods!’

We will be looking at Traditional stories including Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Little Red Riding Hood. We will be finding out about Woodland Animals and their habitats.

In English we will be writing simple sentences and using a capital letter and full stop. We will also be looking at instructions for making porridge and writing simple facts about animals.

In Maths we will be learning more about addition and subtraction and using numbers to 20.

In our outside area we will be developing our Garden Centre and Tea Room. We will be building dens and playing in the sand and water and making tasty meals in the mud kitchen!

We do PE on Monday afternoon with JB Sport. Please ensure you come to school wearing your PE kit.



There are two types of reading books that your child will bring home:
● A reading practice book – Collins Big Cat.

This will be at the correct phonic stage for your child. They should be able to read this fluently and independently. These books will come home on a Wednesday and be collected in on a Tuesday.

● A sharing book.

Your child may not be able to read this book on their own.

In order to encourage your child to become a lifelong reader, it is important that they learn to read for pleasure. The sharing book is a book they have chosen for you to enjoy together. Please remember that you shouldn’t expect your child to read this alone. Read it to or with them. Discuss the pictures, enjoy the story, predict what might happen next, use different voices for the characters, explore the facts in a non-fiction book. The main thing is that you have fun!



At Mareham, we follow Little Wandle and we have daily whole class phonics sessions.

You will recieve an email every Monday with our sounds for the week to practice at home.
