Reception

Welcome & Introduction

Welcome to Reception’s class page! Here are some pictures of us busy learning and exploring. The Reception Teacher is Mrs Khan and the Teaching Assistant in our class is Miss Harding.

 

Half-Term Topic

We have a different topic each half term. Most of our learning in Reception is linked to our topic so that it has meaning for our children. Click here to find a summary of our learning for this half-term.

 

Key Information for Parents

PE

Please have a PE kit in school from the start of half-term. Reception will do PE twice a week, please leave kits in school in case there are any changes to the timetable.

 

Outdoors

Reception children spend a large part of the day learning outdoors. As the weather changes, we would like to remind parents to ensure children have appropriate clothing for outdoor play. Please make sure all school clothing is labelled with the child’s name.

 

Water Bottle

We would appreciate you sending a water bottle into school for your child every day.

 

School Dinners

Please indicate at the start of term, whether your child will be having a school dinner or a packed lunch. If you change your mind, please let us know. If you intend to have a mixture of school dinners and packed lunches, please fill in a dinner money envelope and hand it in to Mrs Khan. Dinner money envelopes can be obtained from the school office. School dinners are free for all children in Reception.

 

Reading

A reading book and reading record are sent home for you to read with your child. Reading with your child on a daily basis for a short period of time, will make a huge difference to your child’s confidence and progress in reading. Please write a short note in the Reading Record to let us know you have read with your child.

 

Homework

There will be weekly tasks sent home for you to support your child with. Homework will be sent home on a Wednesday and should be returned the following Monday.

 

Keep in Touch

If you wish to discuss any issue to do with your child’s progress at school, please do not hesitate to let us know and we will arrange an appointment to meet you.

 

Parental Involvement

We are always appreciative of any time parents can spare to help in class. If you would like to help in Reception, please contact Mrs Khan.
