Welcome to Reception at Chatsworth Infant School

Our topic this term is ‘Ticket to ride!’ with the emphasis on understanding of the World. The children will have lots of different opportunities to explore this topic in all areas of their learning. In Literacy, we will be looking at using all our phonics knowledge to help us to write simple sentences and focusing on writing tricky words independently. In Maths we will be focusing on the composition of numbers to 20 and beginning to look at subtraction.


Reception Outside Learning Area (ROLA)

We are very lucky at Chatsworth Infant School to have an amazing, newly built outside learning environment. In this area we have a large sandpit, performance equipment, reading area, role play areas, water exploration area, English, Maths, Construction and Creative areas. This large space allows the children to transfer their learning and skills from the classroom, to their outside activities.

Independent Learning Opportunities

Teachers set up the classrooms with a range of exciting and engaging activities that are practical and multi-sensory. Activities are linked to the half termly topic or the key text for the week. Children have a wide range of resources in the classrooms that they can access freely to support their independent learning activities. Activities are set up to provide children with opportunities to practise their speaking and listening skills and encourage them to practise reading and writing throughout the day.
