Welcome to Reception’s page.

How we learn:

In Reception we love learning new things. We learn through play and by exploring our environment. We can work by ourselves and together with our friends. We learn new skills with our teachers and utilise them in our own play. Lots of our achievements are shown on Tapestry so please go and take a look!


Please ensure your child always has a PE kit in school. This consists of a t-shirt, shorts and pumps in a drawstring bag. Please remember to name all items and remove jewellery on the day of PE.

Dragonfly PE day - Tuesday

Each class has a timetabled library session every week where they can choose a book to take home. This is a really good opportunity for you to spend some quality time enjoying different books with your child. Please can all children make sure they bring their library book back on a Monday morning.

Home learning:

Each week we have maths homework with a set of activities which is usually linked to the weekly theme in Reception. There is phonics homework each week that may consist of letter formation sheets, reading books or focus words. Most homework does not need to be returned, however, we love to see what learning and activities you do at home. Please share your child's achievements with us as often as you like on Tapestry.
