Reception – Mrs Clarke

Welcome to Mrs Clarke’s Reception class page.

We are a busy and hard working class who like to have fun as we learn. We try to live by our school motto ‘May Christ Be Seen In Us’ by following our class rules; being kind and helpful and always trying our best in everything we do.


What are we learning about?

This half term our topic is ‘All About Me. We will be learning about what we like and don’t like, our families, homes and being healthy. We will then move on to our next topic Autumn; learning about changes that happen during this season. It will also include learning about Harvest festival and where our food comes from.

Maths: This term we are focussing on our number skills learning to recognise and write our numbers to 20. We are also practising our 1:1 counting and finding numbers that are 1 more or 1 less than a given number.

Sounds: This term we are focussing on learning to read and write our letter sounds.


What happens when?

Show and tell is on Monday.

PE is on Friday.

Library is on Wednesday.

Homework is given out on Friday and collected on Monday.

Lola and Tang, our class monsters, are given out on a Friday and returned on Monday.


How can I help my child?

Share story books and read with your child every day.

Play with letters: make them out of dough, bricks, or even use magnetic letters and stick them on the fridge.

Play I-spy when you go out – use the sound the letter makes, rather than its name.

Practise counting – you can do this anywhere: count toys, books, how many buses you see when you go out.

Play hide and seek – good practice for counting.

Do a jigsaw together – a fun way to develop spatial awareness and matching skills.


Thank you for your continued support,


Mrs S Clarke
