Term 1


Welcome to Reception!


We have been so impressed with how the children have settled in to life at school and we are really enjoying getting to know them all. 


Over the first term children will get used to school life and take part in a range of exciting opportunities. We will be exploring the topic of 'Ourselves'. 


Children will need a named water bottle and named book bag. You are welcome to leave a spare pair of wellies at school.


PE will start for Reception children from the week commencing 25th September. On your child's PE day they will need their PE bag with their PE kit in it. The children will get changed into their PE kit at school and wear it home, bringing their uniform home in their PE bag. 


Reception PE times:

Butterflies - Wednesday pm

Bumblebees - Thursday am

Caterpillars - Friday am

Ladybirds - Friday pm


Any questions, please ask a member of staff, we are always happy to chat and to help.
