Welcome to Reception Class

We are looking forward to a fun packed exciting year!

Mr O’Neill is the class teacher and our teaching assistant is Jill Kenna.

Please look out for a daily activity board at the end of the school day which outlines all the activities we have enjoyed. A relaxed chat on the way home is a great opportunity for the children to reflect on their achievements.

We encourage children to read daily at home.

PE is on Tuesday and children will need to come into school in their PE kits and spend the day in them. Please ensure children are wearing appropriate clothing and footwear.

We do not encourage toys in school but children can bring in books to share (please label them), photographs and drawings/writing. We do not introduce ‘Golden Time’ until Term 6.

In the mornings, we find it helps the children to settle and learn the routine if they come in on their own. If you have any problems, concerns or just want to know how your child is getting on, please come and speak to us. Mornings can be a bit rushed but we will be around at lunch times and available after the school day finishes if you want longer to chat. Don’t forget you do need to let us know if anyone other than you is picking up your child.

Our online  journal, Tapestry, is a fantastic record of children’s learning and we welcome all your own photos and comments! Remember to read our termly letters outlining our learning focus, details of play and stay sessions and educational visits.
