Welcome to Reception!

Reading books

We change books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please can you choose one activity from the purple reading activity book with each book your child takes home. Books and reading logs need to be sent into school every days o that we can read with the children.

Please can you read with your child every day.

We have stay and read sessions every Friday morning 9- 9.40am.Please drop your child off as normal and wait at the Reception entrance at 9am.


Your child will be cooking on a monthly basis, with Tina. Dates will be put on the noticeboard at the beginning of each term. Please provide a container for your child to take home their cooking.


We now have PE on a Wednesday. Please can you make sure the whole PE kit is sent in on these days and that your child’s name is on everything.

Please can hair be tied up and earrings be removed/covered in tape on these days.

Home learning challenges

We send a home learning challenge home every Friday. Please can these be completed by the following Thursday.

Please make sure that all your child’s belongings are clearly labelled with their name.

Please remember that the school day starts at 8.45am. I would love for us to win the attendance cup lots this year, which means money for our class!! The children really enjoy winning the Attendance Cup.
