Welcome to Autumn Term in Reception!


Our Autumn Term So Far!!

Wow Reception! It’s a busy few weeks in reception, getting used to a new school, a new teacher and all our new friends! St Luke’s are very proud to say that the 2017/2018 Reception Class have settled in like superstars!!

After a week or two of getting used to the new classrooms and routines we have jumped straight into some exciting learning and exploring………



Phonics, Phonics, Phonics!!

In Phonics, we have been looking at Phase 2 and 3 of Letters and sounds.

Some of the sounds we have been looking at in Phase 2 are S, A, T, P, I, N, D, O, G, C, CK

Some of the sounds we have been looking at in Phase 3 are J,V,W,X,Y , Z, ZZ, QU


Parents/carers can help us at home by practising letter formation and practising all our new sounds.

Ask your teacher for your individual child’s focus sounds for the week!



In Numeracy, we have been looking at our numbers and introducing different shapes!

We are working hard to count and recognise our numbers all the way up to 20!!

Parents can help us practise this by counting with us at home, helping us form our numbers, and looking for shapes!

Our Termly Topic

In our topic, this term we have been looking at “Me and my Family”

We have done drawings of our families, ourselves, read stories about different families and people with disabilities. We have discussed how everyone is different and how we are all unique!

 We have been busy in the creative room!! We have painted Autumn Trees and also experimented with colour mixing! We are getting used to using our imagination in the home corner, working our hand muscles in the playdoh and exploring the different ways which we can use paint, and other fun and messy materials!!


Here are some pictures of us enjoying our first half term in reception!

The EYFS Framework


Throughout Nursery and Reception, we deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile. We use this to teach each child, considering their level of development and any additional needs. A copy of this can be viewed here :

Staff are always on hand to discuss your child’s development and give advice or practical support on how to encourage learning at home as well as at school! We are happy to help!

This page will be uploaded on a regular basis will any class information, news and alerts, and pictures and videos showcasing our learning while at St Luke’s!



Our Class Targets

  • This half term we are focusing on writing our names, sentences and tricky words using our phonics and sounds that we have learned
  • Counting up to 20 and beyond! We will also be focusing on adding two sets of objects together
