Welcome to Reception Class

Happy New Year

Happy New Year from us all in Reception Class! We hope that you all had a fabulous Christmas at home. Have a look at some of our Christmas fun in school from last half term.

We are looking forward to the new Spring term ahead

Reception Class Prayer

Dear God,

As we begin our Middleforth journey please help us to make the right decisions and to keep safe as we travel through the school.  Help us to work hard and to be the best we can be.  We thank you for our classroom and outdoor learning.  We thank you for our milk, fruit and delicious lunches.  We thank you for our friends and teachers and for making us all so different but special and loved by you.

Forest School

In Reception Class we are lucky enough to visit Forest School every week in our school grounds.

Physical Development

We have been working hard to build up our muscles so that we will develop into super Middleforth writers. We have been using the large equipment in the hall and having 'Funky Finger' session every day where we build up our fine and gross motor skills to help us to hold and use scissors and writing tools effectively. Take a look at what we have been doing


We want parents/carers to be involved with your child's learning at every level so have homework so that your child can share their learning from school with you at home. All children in Reception Class have a reading book which goes home everyday. The books are listened to and changed every Monday and Thursday in school but books can be changed on any day if required. Every child also has their own homework book which is sent home every Friday and due back the following Wednesday. This book contains a piece of phonics and mathematics work to complete each week. The work consolidates our learning from class that week. The children also have a 'Sharing Book' (Library book) to take home and enjoy every other week.

At Middleforth we encourage our children to develop a growth mindset rather than a fixed one. Find out more below.
