Welcome to the Holy Trinity Stacksteads C.E.P.S. Website

Welcome to Reception!

We are two Reception Classes based in our Holy Trinity Foundation Stage Unit. Our teachers are Miss Ringland and Miss Lougheed. We also have Mrs Heath, Mrs Thompson and Mrs Schofield here to help us learn and play!


Our Reception Wedding

After learning all about weddings over the past couple of weeks, our Reception class went down to Church to take part in their own wedding ceremony. We then came back to school for the wedding breakfast. Have a look at our pictures below. 

The Scarecrow's Wedding

As part of our Julia Donaldson topic we have been reading The Scarecrow's Wedding. We have also been thinking about what happens at weddings. Reverend David came in to school this week to  talk to us about weddings. He even brought in some of the robes that he wears for weddings! 

This half-term we have been reading Julia Donaldson books. We have really enjoyed Stick-Man, The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo's child and Room on the Broom so far! We have been reading and writing rhyming words, looking at story settings and comparing the books to see what is similar and different. 


Road Safety will begin on Tuesday 23rd January.  Pictures will follow. 


We have started to learn some sounds in our Phonics sessions. So far we have learnt the sounds -

We love to sing our silly monster songs. These teach us to listen to the first sounds in words. Here are some links below so that you can help me learn at home!


Have you tried the game Teach your Monster to read yet? Follow the link below to play a fantastic game that helps us to practise our phonics sounds!

We LOVE Forest Fridays! This week we mane our own Stick men and Stick families! 

In Maths lessons we have been learning to add two numbers together. We have been using the numicon pieces to help us and writing out the number sentences. 

Apply for your child's milk with Cool Milk here. Their milk is free until their 5th birthday.

This term we are focusing on our Fine Motor Skills. These activities help us to make our hands strong to help us hold our pencil correctly. Our favourite activity so far is Dough Disco. We do this every Friday afternoon. We dance along to our favourite music like Little Mix and One Direction whilst squishing and squeezing our dough!

Here are some pictures and a video from our super Christmas Show, Sign and Rhyme! We had a brilliant time dancing and playing parachute games. Thank you very much Cotton Shed Theatre Company.
