Welcome to Starfish Class!

We will share some of the things we have been working on with you all. 


Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!

We wish you a warm welcome to Reception. Mrs Venables is the teacher in Starfish Class with our wonderful teaching assistant Mrs Hole.


We have lots of fun topics planned during the year based on the children's interests. These experiences will provide us with excellent opportunities such as trips, cooking and visitors coming in to talk to us.  


We will begin learning our sounds, learn how to write (including lots of fine and gross motor activities) and will start to learn lots of  maths skills including measuring, identifying shapes and exploring numbers to 20.  


In Reception we learn through play and we are looking forward to creating lots of fun and exciting experiences for the children.  If you feel this is something you could support us with we always welcome volunteers into our base.

Below I have attached a few websites that may be of use to help your child continue their learning when at home:



    • this website contains a variety of different games that can help your child apply their phonetic knowledge
  • Teach your monsters to read (ipad/tablet app)



Tricky words (songs) - tricky words are words that cannot be 'sounded out'





  • Counting song 1-20
  • 2D shapes
  • 3D shapes
  • Counting/matching numeral to quantity (ladybird spots or gingerbread men is a personal favourite)
  • Doubles
  • Recognising coins
