Welcome to Rosehill Reception Class  


Hello to all our lovely reception children and their families! Thank you for visiting our website. Please have a look around and let us know what you think. We will use our class page to keep you up to date with everything that is going on in our busy reception class and share lots of photos of the fun we have been having.



In FS2 children learn through the Foundation stage framework consisting of 7 areas of learning.

  • Personal, Social and Emotional development
  • Physical development
  • Communication and language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive Arts and Design


Each day the children have designated activity times in which they will come together in small groups and access a different area of learning through a variety of activities. The children take part in daily mathematics, literacy and phonics sessions to develop their understanding of number, shape, space and measure, reading, writing, letters and sounds.

The children access both indoor and outdoor provision daily which allows them to choose different activities which aim to further enhance and develop their skills. 

Through continuous provision, group time and focused activities, we aim to support the children in their learning and development. Continuous observations are made of the children to establish their level of development and track their progress. Observations, photographs and children's work is evidence of each child's learning and development. This information is kept in their learning journeys. 


Our aim is to support the children by enhancing and scaffolding their learning and play, watching them as they learn new skills and flourish.

Useful websites


Here is a list of some useful websites that can be used to support and extend children's learning at home, on top of school set homework.

Please sign up to the oxford owl website where you will find lots of e-books to share with your child.


Guinea pigs!

We are excited to have two guinea pigs as part of our reception class this year. Fudge and Honey. The children are already growing very fond of them and showing a keen interest in learning how to care for them.


PE will be on Thursday afternoon, please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on these days. Please can you also remove any jewelry and earrings on these days.


Please can you label all items of clothing, including PE kits.


Activity money is £1.00 a week. This can be paid in half termly blocks. Letters to follow. 


Soon your child will be bringing home a reading book. Reading books will be changed weekly. It is essential that you spend 5/10 minutes each night sharing your child's book with them, helping them to learn their tricky words and phonics sounds. Please make a comment in their diaries so we can keep up to date with the activities you have been doing, thank you.
