Welcome to Our Reception Class Pages
In Reception we are always busy and have lots of fun and adventures as we learn lots of new things, work hard and play. We have a safe and secure environment and learn in a structured and stimulating setting using lots of fun and exciting resources. Our highly experienced and qualified teachers and teaching assistants are:
Mrs Hartland (Monday to Wednesday)
Mrs Evans (Thursday and Friday)
Ms Birkett (Monday to Friday)
Mrs Damiano (Monday to Friday)
Mrs Coope (Monday to Friday AM)
Feel free to come and speak to any of us if you have any questions and concerns. Alternatively you can put a note in your child's reading record for us to read or e-mail us and we will respond to your messages as soon as possible.
Reception year at Winkfield St Mary's is an important foundation to their learning and we have created a curriculum which will prepare children to be ready for Year 1 learning. You can access a document which explains this here.
On this page you will find key diary dates and details of our home learning for the Summer Term 2021. Reading books will be changed 2 times a week on a Monday and Thursday. Never force your child to read but aim to read with them as often as possible. Please remember to sign the reading record so we know they have read their book.

During the Summer Term we send home 5 'wise owl words' each week (every Monday) for your child to learn. During the 1st half of the Summer Term we would like your children to try to learn to read the words (without sounding if possible). During the 2nd half of the Summer Term we would like your children to try to learn to spell the 'owl words' and they will have a little spelling test each Monday. Maths homework will be posted on Seesaw each week, please support the completion of this, practically where required. Additionally we have a homework grid for both half terms for you to complete when convenient to you and your child. (see below)
