Reception Slideshow

Badby school are very excited to welcome the new reception class.

Our PE days are Thursday and Friday, the children will be following the Real PE scheme. We ask that PE kit is brought into school on a Monday and the children will bring it home on a Friday.

Every morning the children will be completing a lap or two of the playground in our version of The Daily Mile, as well as Cosmic Kids at the end of every day.

We hold daily phonics lessons. The children will learn a new sound Monday - Thursday, with a recap on Friday. To support and extend learning into the home environment, the children will bring a book containing the work we have been learning home.


We will start with the Phase 2 sounds, shown on the right. Children will then be moving on to Phase 3.

There are some free phonics games on the website below. These can be used to reinforce previous learning at home.


We have recently begun teaching Little Wandle - Revised Letters and Sounds in the Reception Classroom (as of January 2022)


Happy To Be Me!

Our exciting first adventure is all about ourselves, learning about those around us and our unique qualities that we bring into the classroom. Over the six weeks of this topic we begin by looking at what makes us all unique through creating self portraits. Moving on we journey to explore what is the best thing about ourselves and our new friends, as well as who makes up our family and why they are important to us.

Below is the overview for the term.
