Our learning overview for, 'All About Me'.

A warm welcome to the new school year in Reception class.  I am looking forward to getting to know you all.


Our indoor PE time is on a Tuesday so the children will require named, plimsolls for these sessions.  These can left in school, in a clearly named PE bag.

We will also be doing outdoor learning on a Wednesday afternoon so named, wellies and a waterproof jacket will be needed for these sessions.


The children are allowed to bring some fruit or cereal for their morning play snack. No nuts please. Fruit and milk will also be provided if the children want it.

A named water bottle is also required for the children to be able to drink whenever they want to.


Please ensure that your child brings their book bag, with reading record, to school each day as they will be regularly taking home books and the sound that they have learned each day.


We will be doing lots of junk modelling throughout the year, so boxes, magazines and clean recyclable materials are most welcome.  Additionally any cutting or plants would be fabulous to enhance our outdoor space


Information will be shared regularly on our class page so watch this space.

Friday 18th February 2022 - Remote Learning


Hello, Reception! I hope you are all well on this blustery Friday morning.

Here is your remote learning for today. All I can ask for is that you try your best and you do what you can. Today would be an excellent opportunity to share some stories with the wonderful people in your house. If you would like to, you can draw a picture of one of your favourite book characters and we can display it in the classroom after half term.


Well done and thank you for working exceptionally hard this half-term, you should be extremely proud of yourselves. Happy Friday my lovelies and have an excellent half term!

Mrs Williams
