Hello everyone and welcome to Reception!


Your teachers this year are Miss Ebsworth, Mrs Ajmal and Mrs Baig. 


It is lovely to welcome you are back and see you all back in school and ready to learn. We know that this might be an anxious time for parents but we will do our absolute best to reassure you and ensure your children feel safe and happy whilst in school.


Our topic this half term is All About Me and we will be finding out about ourselves, our bodies, our homes and where we live. 


We have set up Class Dojo as a way to communicate with parents throughout the year. Please use the instructions and code given to you and sign up as soon as you can!



Children will not require their PE kits for the Autumn term due to the change of uniform policy. Our PE session will be on a Thursday afternoon so please send your children in the appropriate clothing and footwear. PE will predominantly happen outside (weather permitting)


Please visit this page for regular updates and information. Look at the links to see what we will be getting up to this year!

Hello everyone!


Unfortunately we have not had the start to our new term that we expected and we will be remote learning until February half term. 


I will be posting daily Phonics and Maths activities on Class Dojo as well as stories, topic activities and writing activities. I will upload all resources onto our class page here too. Please find all resources below this message.


Below you will find a daily timetable for you to follow with your child at home. It is paramount your child is completing the daily tasks to continue their learning this term.


If you have any questions or concerns please message me on Class Dojo.


Take care and stay safe. We can't wait to see you all again soon.

Hello everyone, have a look at what we are getting up to in Reception this week...


This week we are learning about pattern in Maths. 

Here are some good ideas for learning about pattern at home.


We are currently learning Phase 2 in our Phonics.

Here are some songs we use to help us learn our Phonics.


We have been learning Makaton signs for the song 'What a Wonderful World' for our Harvest assembly.

Here is the video we have learned the Makaton signs from. 


This week we will be looking at our own baby pictures and discuss how we have changed since we were babies as part of our History curriculum.
