- able to draw a recognisable picture

- able to count objects accurately to 10

- able to recognise simple 2D shapes

- able to talk in a full sentence

- able to hold a pencil correctly with a tripod grip

- be able describe what happens in a story and hold a book correctly.


By the end of Reception we hope that your child will  ....

-  work as a member of a group

- read simple sentences and be able to explain what has taken place

- form letters clearly

- write a full sentence that can be read by others
