Welcome to Reception Class

Welcome to our Class pages.  The latest newsletters, along with other information can be found in the Reception Class Information area above.   Keep checking the @Home section for useful resources and activities to do at home.

We are privileged to be part of your child’s first year in school. It is such a magical year, watching the children grow and develop, not only academically, but also in confidence. In our Reception Class, we learn through play and adult led activities to encourage the children to use their own inquisitive ideas and develop them over time.

We teach daily phonics and numeracy lessons, then allow children to access quality provision, so that they may reach their potential independently and at their own pace.


Reception Class Routines

PE – is held on a Wednesday morning.

Homework – is given on Friday and expected back on Wednesday

Reading – we aim to read with the children twice a week, although books can be changed on request as needed.


Shark In The Park

“Shark in the Park  –  He looks at the sky. He looks at the ground. He looks left and right. He looks all around.”  



Outdoor Fun

Independent writing was fun in the outdoor area.  



Construction Day

The children had a great time building super structures.  



Pancake Day

Trip To Hardwick Park

Celebrating Roald Dahl

The children had a great time dressing up as their favourite Roald Dahl characters and making an enormous crocodile.


“That naughty crocodile tried to eat all the children.”





“I’m fantastic Mr Fox, because I’m fantastic!”


Welcome to School

The children had an exciting first week at school and have settled really well.

“I love painting in the painting area!”




“I like playing outside, especially on the bikes.”
