St Edward's Catholic Academy


Mrs Jones and Mrs Hobson welcome you to Reception,  we do lots of fun things in our class. Here are just a few of them.

Literacy and Phonics

We really enjoy reading and writing. We are starting to learn lots of different letters and sounds.  We are having a go at spotting them in the environment and even trying to write some of them. 

Sharing stories together.                                                                          Writing a shopping list. 









Working our super strong hand muscles.                                                      Reading the sounds on the cups to find the hidden teddy.


Here are some good websites with games to help with early reading and sound recognition.



During Mathematical sessions, we learn how to read, write and order numbers,  as well as learn different concepts such as weighing, measuring, time, money and capacity.








Knocking down numbered tin cans.                                                                     Filling in the missing numbers.
