Welcome to Reception

  Reception Information

We had a wonderful time on our trip to Ash End Farm. We fed the ducks, stroked the sheep, held a chick, bottle fed a lamb and so much more!

























What a fantastic performance of the Nativity. We are very proud of all the children in Reception.







Look at the fun we had in the snow.






What an exciting first half term we've had! The children have settled in really well and we are looking forward to more fun and learning between now and Christmas. Thank you very much for helping with our 50th anniversary celebrations. The children all looked amazing in their 60s outfits!

Useful information:


PE takes place every day in Reception. We change into our PE kits on a Wednesday so please can you make sure earrings are removed and long hair is tied back. All items must be clearly labelled and PE kits need to be kept in school.

Home School Diaries

Please can you send in your child's Home School Diary every day as we may need to send you a message. 


Your child will bring home an Oxford Reading Tree (O.R.T.) book and a class book each week. If you wish to change these books more frequently, your child can do so independently(3 times a week max please). This can only be done if you have recorded their books in the Reading Diary. Teachers will only be responding to comments in the diaries once a week. Don't forget you can visit our Reading Maze after school and borrow books to take home. 


Letters and sounds of the week will be sent home on a Friday. These can also be accessed below. Please can you practise these sounds and keep reinforcing those already learnt. Thank you.
