Mrs Summerfield

Is the Reception class teacher and is keen to see all children leave the Reception class with high levels of independence and confidence.

Mrs Riddle

Hello and welcome to Mrs Summerfield’s and Reception Class page.  Our theme for the year is ME!  This term our big question to help us find out about ‘me’ is:

Will I always look and be the same?

Communication and Language

To help answer the question we will be making sure we know what a question sounds like and how to answer a question using words who, what, where, when, how, why?


On the term theme of change we will use some stories where a character changes through growth, magic, or dressing up:


The phonics skills which are being learned will be used to help the children to become independent readers and writers.


We will use our class environment to explore numbers to 10, finding one more and one less than a given number, using number lines, comparing quantities and counting beyond 10.

Understanding the World

As Winter progresses into Spring we will be watching the changes in the woods, the trees, the plants and bird life.  We hope to find out about growth changes from tadpole to frog, egg to butterfly, egg to chick.  We love using Bee-bot and paint programs on the computers and will use these to develop the sequencing of growth changes.

Expressive Arts and Design

A key setting for exploring the subjects of change will be a castle and we will particularly use the painting of The Castle of Muiden in Winter by Jan Beerstraaten.

There will be interesting places inside the castle which we will visit in our play and imaginations!

Religious Education

We will be thinking about God’s wonderful creation and taking a close look at what we see near to us in school.  As we approach Easter time we will think about Salvation and who Jesus is as the Son of God.



Important reminders:


Homework is given out on Fridays to be returned on Monday morning.


Children take part in PE lessons with Sports Coaching North West every Thursday.  They need to wear white t-shirts with black or navy shorts.  The teaching sessions will be indoors this term.


The children are invited to have toast for their mid-morning snack.  A ‘toast letter’ is sent out on Thursday to be returned the next day with a completed slip and payment for the next week.


Finally, we are very excited about this term and look forward to building more confidence, playing with friends and buddies, sharing play ideas and co-operating with each other.
