Autumn Term

Welcome to Reception

Welcome to the start of your journey at Victoria Road Primary School 

During the Autumn term our topic will be 'Dinosaurs ' we will be thinking about all types of dinosaurs, T Rex, Stegosaurus, Diplodocus, Pterodactyl... We will be visiting the Liverpool Museum to see how dinosaurs lived as well as having our own dinosaurs in the classroom, we may even be having our very own dinosaur babies.

Look out for a hidden dinosaur in our classroom, Mrs Clarke has been very busy making us our very own dinosaur world.   

In literacy we will be focusing on books about Dinosaurs starting with 'Harry and his Bucketful of Dinosaurs' We will be acting out the story, learning how a story is put together and looking at the characters to help develop our reading and writing.

We will be writing our own descriptions of Dinosaurs and writing about what we would put in our own buckets.

We will be learning our sounds we will be looking at initial sounds, making words using the sounds and our tricky words. Check the classroom every morning for our sound of the day and hidden words to read and look out for our new reading area both inside and outside of the classroom.

In maths we will be using Number blocks.(CBBC). This half term we will be focusing on numbers up to 5 counting and recognition, 2D shapes, measuring using dinosaurs and comparing sizes, taller/shorter/bigger/smaller.

The children will be doing lots of learning in the outdoor area using our new literacy and maths area, mud kitchen,  role play, sand, water and stage! We are also hoping to do lots of planting in our nature area. Look out for lots of hidden sounds and numbers in our new and exciting Dinosaur school (Miss Moore has been very busy collecting lots of lovely activities)

My door is always open if you have any questions, worries or concerns. Please feel free to catch myself, Mrs Clarke or Miss Moore at the beginning or end of the day.

Is every Monday afternnon 

Please can you make sure the children have their P.E Bags in school. They can bring them in on a Monday morning for the week ahead and be left in their pegs. Please make sure all clothing and belongings are clearly named. Thank you




We aim to read and change your child’s reading book twice a week. It is important that your child has their book bags and reading books and diaries in school every day so that this is possible. We ask that you spend 10 minutes each day listening to your child read their book or key words. It is important to talk about the story to make sure you child is understanding what they have read. When you have heard your child read please could you complete the home school reading diary. This will help us to monitor reading development.



Word Aware 
Here at Victoria Road Primary School we use the Word Aware approach.This entails learning a new word everyday, we read the word, found out its meaning, act out the word, sing the word we even have a word RAP!! Your child will bring home a slip stuck into their reading diary with the chosen topic of discussion for that evening.  On the day your child gets their Word Aware Homework they will not need to read but will be expected to spend time discussing their word with as many adults as possible at home. Children will still need to read on the other nights of the week. However to get the best benefits it would be ideal to talk about the word as much as possible over the week as this will help them back in class where there will be quality time spent discussing or writing about the chosen word. 

We feel that Word Aware Homework will contribute to the enrichment of writing and hope that you will support your child at home.
