Reception Class Long term Plan 2023-2024

Nursery and Reception children and their families came back to school for our Sleepy Story time Evening. The children came dressed in their pyjamas. We shared stories and had biscuits and hot chocolate.

This week we had a visit from the Warwickshire road safety officer. We learnt how to stay safe when outside near roads. 

We made poppies to help us think about Remembrance Day.

We have enjoyed learning about the Christmas story. 

We made our own wrapping paper by using different techniques to make prints and repeated patterns. 

Reception Class Autumn 1 Medium term Plan 2023-2024


Children will initially have a picture book which they can share with you, discussing what is happening in the book. When your child has learnt their first phonemes taught in class and is able to segment and blend words, they will have a reading book with words in. Please hear your child read 3 times a week, for about 5 minutes, and sign their reading diary. Reading certificates are awarded after every 20th log in their reading diary.


We send home a weekly home communication letter detailing what has been taught during the week. There will be a suggested activity which you may like to do with your child to support our learning in school.

Tricky words will be sent home each week. Please help your child to learn to read these words. When they have learnt all the words for that phonics phase, they will be awarded a Tricky Words certificate.

Home Communication books and reading books are sent home on a Thursday and should be returned the following Tuesday.



PE for Reception will take place every Monday. Children can come to school wearing their full PE kit (navy/black joggers or shorts, house colour/white t-shirt and dark jogging top or blue school jumper).



We have been having fun working on our pumpkin activities.
