Welcome to Reception!
In reception, children learn through play and exploring areas of provision, both inside and outside of the classroom, as well as directed activities.
Everyday, we learn phonics, maths and literacy. We also do lots of fun topics which help us learn and develop in all areas of learning.
If you have any questions, please speak to the reception staff or leave a message with Mrs Davies and we will get back to you!

Some useful information:
Reception children should arrive at school at 8.55am and will finish at 3.15pm. Children will come into school through the front door by Mrs Davies' office and leave via the reception gate.
Snack money is £10 per half term. Children will be provided with snacks and drinks throughout the day.
Please provide your child with a reusable water bottle which can be filled throughout the day.
PE will take place on Thursday. Please send your child to school in their PE kit on these days. They do not need to bring a change of clothes.
Reading books will be sent home once per week. Please try to read a little to/with your child each day and write in their home reading diary. Children will receive a maximum of 2 reading books per week and should read these several times to build fluency and confidence.
Infant children are entitled to universal free school meals. Please advise Mrs Davies if you wish for your child to receive a hot dinner or confirm that you will be providing a packed lunch.
If your child requires any medication or has any allergies, please speak to the class teacher.
