A warm welcome to everybody visiting our Reception Page.

Welcome to Greenleaf's Reception page. Throughout the Reception year, this page will be full of ideas and activities for you to support your child's learning at home. Many of you have been attending our Reception Workshops. If you missed any of these workshops, the handouts are available on the 'Parent Workshops' page of our website.
The Early Years Curriculum
Following our Workshops and initial discussions on the EYFS, here is a summary of the principles behind the Early Years Curriculum. It is full of helpful ideas on how you can support your child at home. Feel free to see a member of The Foundation Stage team if you have any questions.
Early Learning Goals
These Early Learning Goals summarise the knowledge, skills and understanding that most children should have gained by the end of the Reception year:
Early Learning Goals
"Wow Moment" vouchers
During their time in Reception, we are sure there will be lots of moments when your child does something that makes you say "WOW". So, here are some vouchers for you to write these "WOW MOMENTS" on. Just print a voucher, write about the 'Wow Moment' and we will put it in your child's Journey Book. Alternatively, you can pick up a voucher from class whenever you like!
'Parents Points' Sheets
Remember, you can pick one of these sheets up from our Reception Noticeboard every week. It has a summary of some our learning for the week, and gives lots of ideas on how you can support the learning at home.
Week Beginning 13th March.
Here’a a video version of the book we will be reading in the Autumn Term. There are lots more episodes of ‘Titch’ on Youtube you can watch. Remember to discuss how Titch is feeling…
If your child is already a developing reader,why not try...?
If your child is ready to learn their Phonemes and Numbers:
Here's a catchy song you can enjoy with your child. It will help them to learn their phonemes.
You can play it again and again. How many phonemes does your child remember? Do they remember the actions? Can they remember the phonemes with the volume turned off?
Here are some online games which will help children with learning weekly phonemes and numbers.
This is an excellent website, where you can download free books for your child to read !You just need to login ...HAVE FUN!
There are also some great games online for you to try out:
Just enter your details to access games to help with Phonics and Tricky words.
The children really like Mr. Thorne and there are lots of small videos of him exploring Phase 2 and Phase 3 phonemes. There is also an APP you can download too!
These games are great for number recognition, adding and taking away.
Here, you can find activities to take us beyond numbers to 10!
You can use these slides as 'Flashcards'. These words are really important as they will help your child become an independent reader. HAVE FUN!
