Jupiter and Mars 2020-2021



Hello and welcome to Mars and Jupiter's class page! 

Who teaches in Reception?

Morning Routines

Each morning, the children come into class and complete a ‘Morning Thinking Challenge’. The children will find their name and attempt the challenge that has been given for that day. Please support your child to practise writing their name at home. You could write their name and your child could copy it, or you could write your child’s name in dots and they could trace over it. It is important to encourage them to also have a go on their own!



Your child will be given a reading book in school and we will be encouraging them to read books online outside of school. Children will be able to access books from our class library. We will have strict quarantine rules in place for when they have finished their books to ensure no cross contamination between classes. Your child will start on a sharing book that they will read with an adult in class. We will focus on the structure of the story and will use the pictures to develop story language and vocabulary. Your child will then be given a book that they can read by themselves based on their phonetic ability.

Please remember that all children progress at different levels and rates, therefore your child will receive their own reading book when they are secure with their phonics sounds.

Try to encourage your child to look at and read books at home even though they are unable to bring a reading book home from school. Reading to your child frequently or encouraging your child to recognise sounds and words will really contribute towards your child’s progress and help with their comprehension and fluency skills.


Every Tuesday afternoon, we will be taking the children outside for their PE lesson. If the weather does not allow us to go outside for PE, then we will complete an activity in the classroom e.g. Cosmic Kids Yoga.  This year, we would like your child to come to school dressed in their PE kit, ready for their PE lesson. Your child can wear any sports clothes as long as they are warm, comfortable and suitable.
