We will be posting lots of photographs, messages and information on this page to keep you updated on all the things taking place in Reception. Please keep checking the page regularly for updates.
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Reception at Springfield and we look forward to an exciting and successful year together.

Reception have been enjoying having ‘Mystery Readers’ coming into class to share a story. We have had 2 amazing readers sharing their favourite children’s story. The children have LOVED it!
Odd Socks Day during Anti Bullying Week
We have been especially thinking about being kind and how to be a good friend this week.
On Tuesday the children came to school wearing odd socks to show that it’s ok to be different and how we should be proud of who we are. We enjoyed lots of activities in class, such as pairing up odd socks, designing their own odd socks, pegging up odd socks on a washing line.
We also had a special surprise, a video message from CBeebies presenter Andy from Andy and the Odds socks, for all the children at Springfield. He told us how important it is to be kind to each other and reminded Mrs Chard to wear her odd socks too!
Thank you for supporting such an important week in school.
We love to read!
We have a wide range of story books in our Reception classrooms of both traditional, popular and new authors. We also visit the school library every week which is well stocked with high quality stories and non-fiction books for the children to choose from.
If you would like an idea of appropriate high quality stories to share with your children at home, we have attached a list below as a starting point.
Remember remember the 5th of November....
Outdoor provocations - creative opportunities, fine motor skills, number recognition, role play opportunities and lots of talk all during play and having fun!
We have enjoyed having visitors from 'GIST' to talk about the important message of road safety. We loved the talk from Paul and Pete and what a brilliant experience being able to sit in the drivers seat!
...and listen to our road safety reminder!
We started the week talking about how people celebrate Diwali - the festival of light. Some of our children who celebrate Diwali came to school in their special clothes and talked to us about their family celebrations. We had great fun trying out some Bollywood dancing, making rangoli patterns and reading the story of 'Rama and Sita'.
Hopefully by now, your children have been teaching you at home, the sounds that they have learned in school e.g. m,a,s. Please keep sticking the sound sheets that we send home each day into the red book. These books are for you to keep at home to practise the sounds with your children. Please try to keep up with the sound that is sent home each day - there are lots more to come!
After each group of sounds taught we will blend them to read words. This is called 'Wordtime' and we will send 'green' words home to practise.
Thank you for your support in your child's reading journey.
