Welcome to Reception Class at Chesterton.

We have had a busy half term so far settling into school life, making new friends and learning the routines of the day.


In Phonics, we have learnt the sounds s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d and g so far. The class are doing very well at remembering the songs to go with each sound and we are working on our letter formation every day.


In English, we started with the Owl Babies story. We learnt all the actions to accompany the story and made our own masks for retelling, also drawing our first story maps!

Over the past 2 weeks, we moved onto Non-Fiction which involved creating our own set of instructions. We started with bird feeders, then squirrel muffins. We visited Forest School on Friday to make our own dreys for the squirrels and hide the muffins we'd made.


Please see the photographs below for a snippet of what we have been upto in Reception.


Thank you,

Miss Baggott and Mrs Carter.
