Reception – English Autumn 1 

The reception children have been so busy in their first half term at school! They have been familiarising themselves with their new learning environments both inside and outside and have been getting stuck into all the mark making and writing opportunities that are available. 

They have started daily phonics lessons and have began learning the single sounds through stories, actions and songs. 

Reception have also started the story scribing process and many of the children have been using their imaginations to come up with ideas to write their own story. They have also been creating registers, menus and labels for around the classroom. Some children have been writing a few initial sounds in their stories and practicing to write their name.
