Reception – Miss Robinson

Welcome to Class Reception!


Throughout this year your children will be working closely with:

Miss Robinson – Class Teacher

Mrs McKinnell – Teaching Assistant



My Town and Me

Welcome to St Anne's C of E Primary School 


During the Autumn Term our topic will be My Town and Me.  



The first half term in Reception Class is about settling into school life and establishing rules and routines. The children will find school days tiring at first as they adjust to the changes of our busy day. Our focus as staff is really getting to know your children and finding out what they know and what they can do. We will be finding out what the children are interested in and taking our learning forward based on their interest. We will start with finding out about our families and homes through our topic ‘My Town and Me’. 




Key information

Key times:

Please make sure that all clothing is labelled including PE kits and shoes. In Class Reception we access our outside area in all weathers.  As the weather will begin to get colder please make sure you send in coats, hats, gloves and scarves.


Water Bottles and Fruit 

Children should bring a named water bottle each day.  We provide free fruit on a daily basis or your child can bring their own piece of fruit for morning snack. Please don’t send them with other snacks such as with crisps, biscuits or chocolates. 



We will be sharing lots of books in school and it is important that this continues at home. To support your child at home we encourage that they read with you daily. If they read for a minimum of 3 times a week and note it in their diaries they will receive a remarkable reader sticker and when they have done this for 5 weeks they will receive a prize



Our PE day this term will be a Thursday.  Please send your child in wearing their PE kit on that day. Make sure everything is named so we can quickly get it back to the right child when we need to.

  • Practice forming letters and using their phonic knowledge to sound out and write simple words and sentences. Think about the shape of letters and their start and finish points.

  • Read numbers that you see everyday. such as house numbers or car registration plates.  
  • Think about and discuss mathematical concepts in everyday life. talk about the time, use money when out shopping, weigh when cooking or baking add subtract, double, half and measure.

  • Share stories together and enjoy story time! Talk about the stories you have read and pretend to be one of the characters. Encourage your child to sound out simple words and blend them together.
