This year in Reception, we will be heading out to sea to become Pirates! We will be having lots of fun whilst learning all the basics of how to become a good 'Captain's Mate'. We will learn lots of new things and develop many skills through a range of exciting multi-sensory learning experiences. 


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to send us a message via Class Dojo. 


Encourage your child to count, recognise and write numbers as much as possible. 


Practise writing their name forming letters correctly (using the set 1 sound map below  and flash cards to help). Set 1 Flashcards


In Reception, the children start the basics of reading by learning the sounds. Your child will benefit from you listening to and reading with them daily. Oxford Owl has free eBooks you can use. 


You can also practise set 1 sounds with them using 'Jolly Phonics' (which is available for free on youtube).
