Welcome to Reception!
Class Teachers - Mrs Bracken and Mrs Simpson
Teaching Assistant - Mrs Hornby
The Spring term in Reception
This half term our topics are Winter and Food.
We will be using our outdoor area to learn new skills and have lots of fun.
This term we are having parent workshops about Phonics, Literacy and Numeracy.
Please try to come if you can.
The early years curriculum is based on learning through exploration and play. There are a number of ways you can help your child to learn and make progress:
- always be on time
- good attendance
- home reading
- point out numbers and letters in the environment
- count at every opportunity
- talk to your child about the world around them
- ask your child what he/she has been doing in school
We believe that by working together between home and school we can provide the best opportunities for your child. Reception is all about being creative and making things - don't forget if you create anything at home fetch it into school and share it with us.
This can be a special time for you and your child. Please support us by reading with your child for at least 10 minutes every day. Research has shown that this can help your child's educational development.
Our PE days are on a Monday and Thursday.
Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school on these days. Can we please ask that your child's PE kit (and uniform) is clearly labelled with their name.
If you wish to speak with us please contact the school office to make an appointment or e-mail us on:
