Reception 2018 - 2019


Welcome to Reception

Elm and Oak Class



Hello from all of us here in Reception. Here is our team and this term our topic is:

Out of the Egg

After half term we discovered an egg in the forest area. We created posters to find it's parents but we had no look. We have kept the egg warm and safe, I wonder what is inside.

In Reception we follow the interests of the children and plan rich opportunites for the children to learn through play. We have worked hard to create an exciting and stimulating environment to support the children throughout their learning. There are a number of different areas inside and within our outdoor environment for the children to explore. Please use the tabs above to explore these areas. 



Starting the Day

The school's doors will open at 8.45am, ready to start our day at 8.55am.This is an opportunity for you to encourage your child to find their ladybird or bumblebee and copy their name before placing it on our 'magic sunflower'. This will help your child to recognise and write their own name independently.


Snack and Lunch

For snack each child recieves toast, a piece of fruit and a choice of milk or water. We offer this at a small cost of £1 per week. 


Throughout Key Stage 1 your child is entitled to free school meals. Each day your child can choose from our hot dinner menu (including a vegetarian option) or a jacket potato with a choice of fillings. Alternatively, you can provide your child with a healthy packed lunch from home. We also have fresh salad on the tables for the children to enjoy alongside their dinner.




Your child is expected to wear the correct uniform. This includes a white polo t-shirt, a red jumper, black/grey trousers or skirt and black school shoes.

Please label all uniform including coats, PE kits and shoes as it becomes difficult to locate lost uniform without a name.


Your child will also need a PE kit. They are able to keep this in school. This should include a white round necked t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps. 




As a school, we take safeguarding very seriously. This includes online safety and we are very aware that many children enjoy playing on tablets, phones and even with Alexa!

Please help us to keep your children safe by clicking on the image below and keeping up to date with tips and ideas to keep children safe on the internet.




Have a listen to some of our favourite nursery rhymes. We enjoy singing different nursery rhymes everyday before lunchtime.
