The members of staff who work in Reception are:

Please ensure that all uniform (including bookbags, bottles, lunchboxes etc.) is labelled clearly with your child's name. 
PE takes place on a Friday. Children need to come to school dressed in their PE kits on their PE days. As it gets colder, they should come to school wearing leggings or tracksuit bottoms. 

Reading afternoon - Reception

We would like to invite parents in to your child’s classroom from 2:50pm till 3:10am to share your child’s reading book with them. We will alternate the day each term:

Term 2 – Monday

Term 3 – Tuesday

Term 4 – Thursday

Term 5 – Friday



We look forward to seeing you.

Reading Helpers
Parent/Carer helpers are always welcome in school. If you would like to volunteer to read with children please speak to your child's teacher. Please be aware that you will be placed in a different class to your child's. We are always very thankful for your help and support.
Here are some photos of some of the activities we have enjoyed in Term 1 and Term 2.
Home Learning
We will post some home learning activities on Tapestry each term for you to use if you wish. 
Your child will also receive a box of Numicon. We will send activity ideas for your child to do with their Numicon to support them with their learning in Maths. 
Please find the Parent User Guide for Tapestry below. This has been designed to make the use of Tapestry straight forward at home. If you are still having difficulties, please get in contact with your child's class teacher. 
We are following the Phonics scheme 'Unlocking Letters and Sounds'. You can find lots of information on this under the tab 'Curriculum' and then 'English'.  If you have any questions or would like some extra support, please do not hesitate to speak to your child's teacher. Thank you!
Below are some useful documents to support you with more ideas for home learning activities.
