Welcome to Reception
We are really impressed with how well the children have settled in to their new classroom environment and daily routines. They have been busy building new relationships and exploring the inside and outside classrooms.
This page will be regularly updated with any information that you may need throughout the school year. Please ensure your child brings in their coloured wallet to school with their reading book every day so we can hear your child and add any messages. We will also be updating Tapestry with all the exciting activities and learning experiences the children are doing. Please feel free to comment and share any home learning or experiences that your child is doing this will help us to build up a holistic picture of your child. Our PE day is on a Wednesday so please ensure your child has the correct kit at school and all jewellery is removed.
You can also keep up to date with our learning by looking through our photographs of activities that the children have taken part in.
Please find attached the curriculum overview booklet for this term.
