Welcome to the Reception Class page


We are a busy, happy class and there are lots of pictures in our Gallery of us hard at work!

We hope you enjoy looking at our class page.


Reception Class Staff:

Class Teacher: Mrs Myers
Teaching Assistants: Miss Armstrong, Mrs Cochrane and Mrs Crosby


The School Day:

Children should arrive between 8:35am and 8:45am when registers will be taken promptly. If your child arrives after this time, they should enter via the main school office. School ends at 3.30pm Monday to Thursday and 2.15pm Friday.



Our curriculum can be found here:



Our PE day is Wednesday. Jess, a sports coach from Education Enterprise, will be teaching the children fundamental movement skills this term. Children do not need to bring a separate PE kit or trainers as they should wear their active uniform (polo shirt, sweatshirt, black joggers/shorts/leggings/skort and black trainers) every day.


Key Person:

Mrs Myers is your child's key person. If there are any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to catch her, or other members of Reception class staff, at the start or end of the day. If you feel that you need a longer chat then the office will be able to arrange an appointment at a more convenient time.



Our latest class newsletters can be found here:



Our phonics programme is Read Write Inc. Children will be given homework and speed sounds cards on Friday. Parents should support their child to complete their homework at the weekend and return it to school on Monday. Speed sounds cards should be kept at home so that children can spend a short amount of time each day practising reading the speed sounds. In addition, links to the phonics virtual classroom will be emailed to parents each week. The videos can also be found here:


More information for parents on Read Write Inc can be found here:


On Thursdays, children can choose a book from our class library box to share at home. Please share the book with your child at home and return the book the following week.


Communication and Language:

'Talk Through Stories' is our communication and language programme. Each week, children will be introduced to a new book which will be read to them each day in order to help them build familiarity with the story and learn new vocabulary. Links to the stories we have read can be found here:



Children receive homework on Friday which should be returned to school on Monday. Speed sounds cards will be sent home on Friday and should be kept at home so that children can practise reading them every day. Please see our Homework and Remote Learning page for more information:



We would be grateful for a voluntary contribution of 50p per week for snack.  Children can choose from a selection of fruit and vegetables (usually oranges, apples, bananas, pears, tomatoes and carrots) and a drink of water or milk. Water is available to the children throughout the day so they will not need to bring their own water bottles to school.



A copy of the lunch menu can be obtained from the school office.



Please encourage your child to leave toys at home. Toys from home are not permitted in the Reception classroom.


Labelling Clothes:

Please ensure that all clothes have your child's name on them, especially jumpers, cardigans and coats. Shoes can be named inside the sole. It is so much easier to find the owner of lost property when it is labelled clearly.  Your child will need a set of spare clothes (including socks, underwear and shoes)  to leave in a bag on their peg in case they need to change during the day.
