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 Miss Berry and we will get back to you!

Some useful information:
From Tuesday 5th September, school will be closed to all children except for key workers or those classed as vulnerable. Remote learning is in place for all other children. You will have received a log in for seesaw and will be emailed daily lesson videos. Please let me know if you have any issues accessing the remote learning! 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. 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. 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.
