Welcome to Reception!

We are really excited to get to know your children and help them settle as quickly as possible. We hope that this year will be a wonderful year for you and for them.

We invite you to join in morning reading with your child every morning between 8.45 and 9.00. Please come in and choose a book and get comfy. 

We are still waiting for the book bags to arrive but until then you are welcome to take a picture book home to read.

2018-19 Term 1 Reception Medium Term Plan 

We have been having fun getting to know each other, learning about the rules and routines and exploring the new classroom – inside and outside!


Displays and Children’s Work
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
