Learn to love, Love to learn

Burnham (EYFS)

Burnham Class


 In Reception, we carefully plan and deliver opportunities for each individual to learn and achieve their full potential, helping each child to develop into a confident and competent learner, in order to be successful in their school life and beyond. By giving the children opportunities for well planned ‘free play’ they are able to take control of their own learning and development, make their own decisions and learn from their choices.

We create a happy, stimulating and caring environment for children, where every child is treated as unique and therefore, feels valued, secure and confident to develop a love of learning.

We provide opportunities to have adult led and child initiated activities that are tailored to the child’s individual learning needs. 



If you are a parent or friend of the school and would like to support the children we are always looking for volunteers, we especially like help with hearing children read, art activities and trips. If you are interested please speak to your class teacher. 



At Home 

It will really help your child to progress if they read as often as possible. When we start learning the sounds, we will let you know which sound we are learning and the action to go with it so you can practise at home with your child. 

Also watching Numberblocks and playing the Numberblocks games would really help develop your child’s number skills. 

Helping your Child with Maths at Home

Below is a link to a short video that explains how we teach number at school and how you could help your child at home. Any questions then please ask. If you do any learning at home please share it on Tapestry, we love to see what the children are doing at home.

Thank you for your continued support.


In Maths we will be looking at number. We have a particular focus on recognising dice dot patterns, fives frames and tens frames in order to develop a strong sense of number. 

We use Cbeebies Numberblocks to enhance our number sessions. 

We will also be looking at shapes, weighing, patterns, measuring and time. 


The Numberblocks website is helpful for developing your child's number skills.

Phonics Practice


Below are some videos to help your child with their phonics learning.


We also have phonics videos on Famly for you to watch with your child.


Zones of Regulation


This week we introduced the children to the ‘Zones of Regulation’ system. This allows the children to tell us how they are feeling throughout the day. We are then able to discuss these feelings with the children and give them strategies to cope with them.

The Colour Monster


We have had a big focus on the wellbeing of the children.

We read a book called ‘The Colour Monster’. This is all about how the monster feels and it created a lot of discussion about how the children are feeling.


The children enjoyed sorting all of the items into the correct container to represent in the different emotions.


Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.' Joshua 1:9
