Welcome to Reception!
We are having a lovely time meeting our new children! They have been having lots of fun exploring the classroom and meeting new friends.
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. Our topic for this half term is superheroes!
If you have any questions, please speak to the reception staff or leave a message with Miss Berry and we will get back to you!

Some useful information:
From Monday 14th September, children will be in school full time. Due to covid-19, we are staggering start and finish times for at least the first half term. Reception children should arrive at school at 8.50am and will finish at 3.10pm. Children will come into school through the front door by Miss Berry’s 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 plastic water bottle which can be filled throughout the day.
PE will take place on Tuesday and Thursday. Please send your child to school in their PE kit on these days. They do not need to bring a change of clothes.
Homework and reading books will be sent home once per week after the children have settled in. Please try to read a little to/with your child each day and write in their home reading diary.
Infant children are entitled to universal free school meals. For the first few weeks, this will be a packed lunch prepared by the kitchens until they are able to open fully again. After this, hot meals will resume. Menus will be sent home for parents to select from. Please advise Miss Berry 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.
