Welcome to Reception RL

Adults who work in RL:

Teacher: Miss Lynch  

Teaching assistants: Mrs Bousie, Mrs D


We aim to change our reading book at least once a week. It is important the children have their books in schools everyday so that we can hear the children read at any opportunity. Please read with your child daily and sign the reading record when you have done so. 

Each child now has a Reading Eggs log-in and password so that they can access online reading on a computer or tablet at home. The children really enjoy playing the games in school. I will aim to set a weekly assignment on Reading Eggs for your child to complete. 

We learn stories and texts through the 'Talk For Writing' approach. This includes learning a story off by heart using actions and expression, inovating the story and writing our own versions. Keep an eye out for the story maps in your child's brain builder. The children use these to help them retell the story. 

Our first text is: The Little Green Dinosaur (Talk for Writing Story)


In Reception it is important that the children learn the correct letter fomations. At Alma park we encourage the approach stroke. Please see the weekly brain builder to support this. 


Our topic this half term is:  dinosaurs

We will explore different types of dinosaurs, what they eat, where they lived and what they look like. We are learning the Little Green Dinosaur story through Talk for Writing and writing our own stories and sentences about dinosaurs. We will also create artwork related to dinosaurs. 


In Maths we are focussing on additon and subtraction of one digit numbers and writing number sentences. We will also be learning to count forwards and backwards between 0-20. In addition to this we will be practising finding one more and one less than a number between 0 -20.

We love to hear about special events and trips that your child has taken part in. Please take a 'Parent/Carer Child Observation Sheet' from the blue box by the Reception door. Fill it out at home and bring it back to us when you are ready. These sheets can go into your child's 'Topic Book' and are a great talking point during group sessions. Alternatively, you can use the email below to send any photographs of the lovely things you do at home.
