Reception

Updated January 2022

Welcome to Reception!

RS are taught by Miss Savage and Mrs Moores and RJ by Miss Jones. 

They are supported by Angela, Mia and Michelle. They can be contacted via yearr@earlsfield.wandsworth.sch.uk

 Happy New Year! It is great to be back at school, despite the cold weather! We are looking forward to introducing the children to their new and exciting topics for this term. Get ready to act out some famous tales and get digging in the garden!

Now that we are in the Spring Term, we will continue to promote your child’s independence as they become more familiar with key skills and school routines. Please support us by ensuring all your child’s clothes are labelled (including small items such as gloves) and that they have their book bag every day with their Pupil Handbook inside.

Reception PE continues to be on Mondays and we ask that they all come into school dressed for PE on this day. We also ask that you make sure your child has the appropriate PE and school day clothing for all weathers.

Please continue to use our email address for any messages or questions: yearr@earlsfield.wandsworth.sch.uk. Teachers will check their emails before school starts (no later than 8:20am) and after school finishes at 3.20pm. If you have an urgent request, please telephone the school office as we cannot guarantee picking up messages throughout the school day.

Once again, thank you for all your continued support. We look forward to more exciting learning opportunities ahead.

Supporting your child's learning at home

There are many ways in which you can support your child’s learning at home:  

  • Reading and sharing books with your child
  • Encouraging writing in a variety of forms
  • Looking and talking about the world around you
  • Counting objects, e.g. pasta shells, buttons, cuddly toys, Lego
  • Recognising numerals
  • Spotting 2D/3D shapes in the environment
  • Involving your child in cooking activities (including weighing/ measuring)


    Book Sharing texts
    from our class library will be sent home every week.  So please make sure they are returned to school every Monday.

Autumn Term

 YR AUT 1 Our School

YR AUT 2 Celebrations

 Spring Term 

YR SPR1 What are the ingredients of a good tale?

Our focus will be on traditional and fairy tales, thinking about the key question, ‘What are the ingredients of a good tale?’. As the children engage in the range of stories we will use questioning to deepen their understanding of language, character, plot, sequence and setting, as well as studying the role of the author and the illustrator. We will be looking at The Little Red Hen and The Gingerbread Man in particular. The children will be drawing story maps; re-telling the stories through actions and key phrases; and composing their own stories to record in writing.

YR SPR2 What can you find at the bottom of the garden?

We will be learning about the lifecycle of a butterfly. We will look at what makes a good home for a variety of minibeasts and observe them in their natural habitats. Children will have the opportunity to search our outdoor space for bugs and other creatures, as well as taking part in planting activities. As part of our investigations, we will be sorting and classifying minibeasts into groups and looking at their differences and similarities. This topic provides plenty of opportunities for the children to be creative and carry on their learning at home. Get your magnifying glasses ready, the minibeasts are coming!
