Welcome to Reception!


Your teachers in Reception are Mrs Wade and Mrs Coates and the teaching assistants who work with us in Reception are Miss Singh, Mrs Wray and Mrs Humphries. 


We share the Foundation Stage environment with the Nursery class in the mornings. 


In the Early Years Foundation Stage we work on 7 areas of learning:

- Personal, Social and Emotional Development 

- Communication and Language 

- Physical Development

- Literacy

- Mathematics

- Understanding of the World

- Exploring Media and Materials 


We develop these areas through adult-led teaching and child-initiated activities (free flow choosing time). 



Children should have PE kit in school all week. 


PE kit consists of black shorts, a white t-shirt and plimsoles.  PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term to be washed.  Kit should then be returned at the beginning of the next half term.


Our PE day is Friday, however there may be occasions when our PE time is changed or there is a special event for which children need their kit.

Reading and book-bags 


Once we start phonics we will issue reading books and diaries.  In the meantime please can you share stories with the children and purchase a book-bag ready. 

No Nuts and lunches 


Please remember we are a no nut school (this includes food that is likely to contain nuts e.g. Nutella).
