A typical day in Reception Class…
A day in Reception Class is never the same as the one before, but we have routines which we learn to help us become independent learners.
8.45am – We come into school with our book bags and water bottles. We hang up our coats and wash our hands.
9am – We sit on the carpet for the register and talk through the visual timetable of the day.
9.10am – Phonics. We learn new letters and sounds through songs and stories.
9.30am – Plan, Learn, Review. We choose our learning inside the classroom and in the outdoor area. We also have a Phonics activity of the day.
