Reception have had a wonderful start to their time here in ‘the big school’ and have all settled in so well. Mrs Ormrod and I are so proud of them! At the moment we are currently getting to know the children and helping them to adjust to school life but over the next few weeks we will be sharing more and more of some of the wonderful things we have been doing in class with you.

Reception Curriculum Overview



Homework is alternated each week between Maths and Literacy homework. It is given out on a Friday afternoon and is due in on Wednesday. Please feel free to make any comments at the bottom of each homework so we can use this feedback to influence future work. The children have set days for reading and it is very important that the children have their reading folders in each day. On your child’s reading day we will listen to them read before changing their books. Please comment after your child has read to you.

Some Important Points

  • Please leave your child at the gate to our outdoor area each morning to come into class by themselves. If you have any messages, please pass them through the office. Teachers are unable to discuss issues in the morning as our aim is to be in the classroom working with the children.
  • The children may bring water bottles into class each day. Ensure they have your child’s name clearly marked on them and that they are filled with water and not juice.
  • Our P.E. day is Friday.
  • Snack is £1 per week

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you throughout the year.

Mrs Jacobson and Mrs Ormrod 🙂
