Welcome to Reception!
We hope that you have had an exciting and enjoyable summer.
In Reception, we are active learners and over the autumn term, we will be supporting your children to settle into their new environment and routine as well as introducing them to their learning. The children will be given many opportunities to develop their critical thinking, explore their own skills and actively learn. This will continue throughout their time in Reception. Within literacy the children will develop their phoneme, word and sentence construction and develop their letter formation. Mathematics will develop their number recognition skills, counting accurately and solving practical number problems alongside forming the numbers correctly. Our topic will focus on learning about Ourselves and developing our communication, understanding, exploration and design skills through a range of activities such as role play, art skill development and discussion time.
Your child will be taught through a mixture of teacher led, teacher guided and child initiated learning, both indoors and outdoors. Therefore, please ensure your child brings their coat to school each day so they are suitably clothed for outdoor activities.
Every Wednesday the children will spend time exploring the outdoor environment and participate in woodland activities. Please ensure that your child has some old clothes and a pair of wellies in a carrier bag for these sessions.
PE will take place every Friday, and on a Monday in autumn term 2. PE kits shall be kept in school until the end of each term. We recommend that you include both indoor and outdoor footwear for child, along with a tracksuit for the colder months.
At Palmers Cross, we encourage the children to become independent learners so please ensure that all clothes, shoes and bags have your child’s name on.
We operate an open door policy, so please do not hesitate to speak to myself, Mrs Harper, if you have any questions or messages, I will be available at the classroom doors at 8:30am and end of school 3:00pm.
We are looking forward to a fun filled year of learning.

One of Wolverhampton's Lollipop Ladies volunteered to help show children in Reception and Year 1 how to cross the road safely. The children then took it in turns to show each other how to cross the road.
