Different Sizes

This week we have been thinking about different sizes.  We found some objects outside and put them in size order. We learned that a bigger stick if not necessarily the same as a longer stick.

Reception Learning Evening

Many thanks to all the parents who came to our Reception Learning Evening.  We explained what the children may talk about at home, such as Numicon and the COOL Board, as well as giving ideas of how families can support their children at home.  Handouts have been sent home and the powerpoint from the evening is here!

Parley Pear Cakes

1. Peel the pears      2. Slice the pears thinly    3. Mix the butter and sugar in a bow    4. Add the eggs     5. Mix in the flour   6. Put into a tray with greaseproof paper    7. Cook it

Our First Week at School

We have all enjoyed our first full week at school, although we are all now very tired.  We have been learning new letter sounds in our Read, Write Inc groups, been practising counting and recognising numbers, making new friends and learning all our school routines.  We even went on a windy walk in our wellies.  We are looking forward to more new learning in the next few weeks.

Home Learning Samples

Here are some samples of what you can do to support your child with the sounds that they are learning at school. The children can draw or cut and stick pictures and photographs into their books. They can also practise writing the letter shape and write labels for their pictures.


Welcome to Reception!

In Reception we are very excited to be starting our learning journey at Parley First School.  Our classes are called RW and RF.  Our learning this term is ‘All About Me!’ and we will be learning about ourselves and people who help us.  We will be reading, writing, counting, painting, singing, playing, making lots of new friends and many other exciting things.  

We look forward to sharing our photos on this page so that you can see what we have been doing.
