The Reception Year

The Reception Year


At Lewannick, our Reception Class continues to follow the EYFS Curriculum. They begin to read, write, learn mathematical skills, problem-solve, investigate, develop independence and so much more! We are committed to working with parents to support your child through this amazing journey.

Below you will find the Reception Year expectations.


Please can you hear your child read every evening. The stories we hear as children shape our view of the world. Reading stories to children can show them far-flung places, extraordinary people and eye-opening situations to expand and enrich their world. It also benefits their language and writing skills!


At Lewannick, we use the Read, Write inc Phonics scheme to teach early reading skills.

In our class, we share books, read aloud, act out and use our imagination to explore the world through stories.   Reading enhances a child’s vocabulary, helps them to understand how to read and write and reading aloud to children encourages them to learn different topics about the world and everyday life.

Phonics Guide

Take a look at our RWI Phonics Guide to learn how to support your child with phonics.

Reception Phonics


Phonics booklets and handwriting practice will be sent out weekly to practice and reinforce what we have learnt in school. There will also be an exciting project to carry out at the start of each topic!


Please can you have a named PE kit in school at all times. PE will be on a Tuesday and Friday and will be both indoors and out.

Forest School

We LOVE outdoor learning here at Lewannick! For the Autumn term, Fox Class will have Forest School every Friday afternoon, so wellies and waterproofs are essential.

I am looking forward to supporting your child develop a love for learning over the year!

If at any point you have any concerns or would like to speak to me please do not hesitate to see me after school or make an appointment in the office.
