Be all you can be!

Welcome to Reception

Teacher: Mrs Saif

Teaching Assistants: Miss Green & Mrs Jennings

In Reception, all children have the opportunity to learn through playing in a range of different environments. There will be many new opportunities for your child to develop their knowledge and understanding.  

Important Information 

  • Children can bring 1 healthy afternoon snack, ie fruit, cheese string, yogurt
  • Please send your child into school every day with a labelled water bottle.
  • P.E. for both classes is on Monday. The children will need to come to school in their P.E. kit and they will stay in this all day. P.E. lessons are held outside most of the time, but not always, so please ensure that they wear something warm if it is cold (e.g. tracksuit bottoms and their school jumper).
  • Look out for our homework uploaded to the Google Classroom every week on a Friday this is due in the following Wednesday. This activity is a wonderful way to build upon the learning that we are doing in school. We will begin setting this homework on 15th September 2023.
  • RWI phonics sounds learnt in class, will also be sent home on a Friday.  This again will allow your child to build upon the learning that we are doing in school.
  • After half term a RWI reading book will also be sent home on Fridays to be returned the following Wednesday
  • All children will require wellies (named) to be left in school to allow them to access the continuous provision in all weathers.
  • Each week we will set aside time to look at the work/photographs uploaded to the Google classroom.  Please feel free to share any thing that you do outside of school that may be of interest to the whole class.
