Our current topic is ‘Amazing me’, we are learning all about ourselves. Please could you share and discuss family photos with your child, and then bring them in to school. They may be photos of celebrations, holidays and special times.

We will share these photographs with the rest of the class and also display them in our class.

Numeracy: our focus is counting and recognising numbers. Please practise counting and recognising numbers in the environment. Eg: house numbers, in shops, bus stops, car registration plates

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt


We were very impressed with how settled everyone came into Reception last week.

This week we are going to be learning and practising the story We’re Going On A Bear Hunt.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gyI6ykDwds

Please encourage your child to listen to the link below and recite the story with you.

In numeracy we will be counting and recognising numbers to 20. Maybe you could go on a number hunt with your child.

Please add any comments at the bottom if you want to share your child’s learning.

Welcome to Reception

We would like to welcome all the parents/ carers of our Reception children to Sunning Hill.

We look forward to working alongside both you to ensure your child’s time in Reception is enjoyable and we can watch your children learn and develop together.

On our blog page we will add any important pieces of information and reminders to help you and your child. At the top of the blog page there are some links to numeracy and literacy games and also videos demonstrating the actions for the phonic sounds.

We would like to invite you  to our weekly stay and play sessions every Tuesday from 8:45- 9:10. Each week we have a subject focus and you are able to play alongside your child to help with their learning. We also hope it will give you a few ideas of activities you can do at home. The first stay and play will be held on Tuesday 19th September.

We would also like to invite you to a meeting for parents after school on Monday 18th September at 3:45 in the Reception classroom. This will give you an opportunity to meet the staff and ask any questions.

Please find attached this terms newsletter.

Once again I would like to welcome you to Sunning Hill and if you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask.

Many thanks

The Reception team
