smileyWelcome to the Reception Class Pagesmiley


A very warm welcome to you all; we hope you've had a super summer with your children. We are very much looking forward to welcoming your children into their new classes and to working alongside you to ensure that your children have a wonderful Reception year with us.


This half term our topic is 'All about me'; this topic will help us to get to know your children better and will help them to make new friends and feel settled and happy in their new surroundings. We can't wait to hear about their families, pets, favourite toys and the things they like to do. 


We have an open-door policy in Reception; you are invited to come inside for 'open registration' every morning and join in with an activity with your child until we signal that it is time to leave (8.40am - 8.55 am).  This is the perfect opportunity to approach a member of the team if there is anything you would like to share with them, however small this may seem. Working alongside you  means that we can work together to ensure that your children are happy, settled, confident and achieving their full potential. If  you wish to make an appointment at any time to discuss any concerns you may have with your child's teacher, then we can happily arrange this. 


Your child's Tapestry online learning journal will soon be up and running. Not only will this inform you of all the super learning, play and fun that your child has been involved in at school but it will also inform you of your child's next steps in learning and how you can help them with these at home. 


We are looking forward to a wonderful year ahead!
