Welcome to Reception


Our Reception unit consists of 2 classes which are Daisies and Daffodils.


Miss Holmes is the teacher of Daisies, Miss Skelhorn and Mrs Jessop-Braithwaite are the teaching assistants. 


Miss Pickett is the teacher of Daffodils and Miss Skelhorn is the teaching assistant.


In our class, children work in groups, play with activities planned to help us progress, join in games and activities with an adult and also choose their own activities where they learn to be independent.

Remember if you have any concerns, questions or need support, contact Miss Holmes (phase leader for EYFS) at and she will be happy to help. 




This year EYFS are using tapestry. It is wonderful to see parents starting to get involved and adding observations and pictures already. 

We regularly add memos onto the tapestry site (these can be accessed through the web browser not the app), it is important you check these memos to find out important information. 

Autumn Term


Autumn 1- This half-term our topic is '999 What's your emergency.' It is all about people who help us. 

We are going to be learning about people who help us, what they can do and how they are helpful.  Our role-play will be a hospital this half-term, we'll be pretending to be give medicine, bandage people, and be doctors and nurses. We will be reading 'Zog and the flying doctors'.  


In maths we will be focusing on our knowledge of number, making sure we recognise numbers 0-5, counting in order to 10 and also recording numbers. 


In RWI we will be learning our set 1 sounds (alphabet sounds) and using these to segment and blend words. Please look at the reading book we bring home to help us segment and blend words and also make up stories for books with no words. 


We will be focusing on writing initial sounds and our name this half term as well as talking in full sentences about what our marks mean.

At Riverview we follow a phonics scheme known as Read Write Inc. Below is a link which shows the correct pronunciation of sounds which will help you and your child to learn.
