Year R

Welcome to Lime Tree Class

We are a Reception class who enjoy learning through a mix of play and teacher lead experiences.


Mrs Davey teaches us everyday. We also see lots of the ladies in Pre-school when we join up for independent learning and physical activities, and also work with Year 1 and 2 for a bit 3 afternoons a week.


We start the day by meeting in the Pre-school playground before coming in and have a wake up, shake up song to get our brains going. Everyday we have a phonics session, which is vital to our learning across the rest of our school career, some time to explore Maths ideas and some time to focus on writing. We also have a different topic each half term and explore that further in the afternoons usually, although it does creep into our morning work without us noticing sometimes! At the end of day, we have a story read to us before we go home.


Information about our topics and what we will be learning can be found in our topic webs below, along with some photographs of the fun we have at school.

Autumn 1 - Marvellous Me

We are starting our year learning about how marvellous we are as individuals and how things in our lives can be similar or different to other people, especially those in our class. Please have a look at our topic web to find out more.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum

Below are a few links if you wish to find out more about the Foundation Stage and the sort of things we will learning. The first link is the 'official' EYFS document and the second link has been designed with parents in mind, and provide some great ideas of how you can aid your child's learning at each stage.

Areas of Learning


Below I have begun to create pages to provide you with ideas to support your child in developing skills in several areas of learning. Please click on the pages below to discover ideas and activities to support your child's development at home. 

Phonic Fun


I have included some website links below that I sometimes use during our phonic sessions.  The children enjoy playing these games and find them very engaging. The aim is to use your phonic knowledge to decode real and nonsense words and sort them correctly. This game is a fun way for children to practice using their decoding skills.

Maths Games


We often play some quick Maths games to get our brains working. I have included the link to some of the them which might be good to play if you get the chance.
