Welcome to Goldthorn Park Reception!

We hope you have had a super holiday are excited to begin your learning journey with us.

We are active and explorative learners in Reception and over the Autumn term, we look forward to beginning our learning together. The children will have many opportunities to develop their critical thinking, explore their own skills and actively learn. This will continue throughout their time in Reception.

Within Literacy, the children will begin to develop their sound knowledge to support their word building as well as begin to develop their letter formation.
During Mathematics, we will begin to develop number recognition, counting objects and subitising those objects too. We will look at shapes and colours.

Our Topic this term is ‘Tell us a story’ where we will be focusing on learning about different nursery rhymes. We will explore these aspects through play indoors and outdoors, through communicating and exploring.

Throughout your child’s time in Reception, they will be taught through a mixture of teacher led, teacher guided and child-initiated learning, both indoors and outdoors.

As a large part of our learning occurs outdoors, we ask that every child brings a suitable coat, every day to wear for outdoor activities. We ask for a pair of wellington boots to be kept at school.
Your child will have PE twice per week, with lots of opportunity for physical learning, so they will require their PE kit to be kept in school during term time. We send home PE kits at the end of each term to be washed.

P.E will be on a Monday and a Friday

Children will only need to bring their book bags and a water bottle to school each day. Please ensure all uniform and belongings are clearly labelled.
We operate an open door policy, so please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the Reception team if you have any questions or messages. Staff will be available at classroom doors at 8:40am and the end of school at 3:15pm.

We are looking forward to a busy, fun filled year of learning!
