PowerPoint of information for Reception Parents

Welcome to Reception!


Welcome to our Reception Class! 

The staff in Reception are as follows:


Mrs Frodsham - Class Teacher  

Miss Birch - Class Teaching Assistant


If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.


Our day begins at 9.00 am, with the door opening at 8.40 and our doors open for home-time at 3.00 pm. 


The children will be given book bags which they should bring into school every day. We aim to hear the children read twice a week and change their book at least once a week, if it is felt that they are ready to progress. We value support from parents and strongly encourage you to read with your child at home every day.

Your child will also have a word card. On it there are green words for them to sound out and red words which they cannot sound out and have to be able to just recognise, e.g. I. Please encourage your child to become more familiar with these words by reading them with them alongside their reading book. 

The children will also have Phonics homework. This will include the letter sounds we have been learning that week and how to write them with the correct formation. 


P.E is on Friday mornings. The children need to come to school in their kit - navy tracksuit bottoms, their PE t-shirt, school jumper or cardigan and black, navy or white trainers. They can leave a bag with shorts and pumps in on their pegs. We encourage independence in Reception so please help your child by allowing them to attempt dressing and undressing themselves at home wherever possible. 

Please ensure all of their uniform and P.E kit is clearly labelled with their name. Uniforms can get muddled while the children are getting ready for P.E and it saves a lot of time when we are returning items to their rightful owner!


Each day the children are provided with fruit and milk/water. We also ask for a voluntary contribution, each half term, to provide an additional snack. As well as providing a healthy snack for the class, we use this money to purchase additional resources for baking activities and ingredients for play dough etc. The cost is £1 per week and the total amount depends on the number of weeks in the half term (e.g 7 weeks = £7.00)


At the end of Reception year we assess children against their Early Learning Goals (ELGs). Below is a poster showing you the expectation at the end of Foundation Stage for your child. Please take time to look at these and see how you might be able to support your child at home.


Thank you for your support


The Reception Team 



Our Reception Classroom and Outdoor Area

These will provide an overview of information for this half term.

The children have settled well into Reception. They have been getting to know the areas and rules and routines, making friendships, learning new skills and having fun! 


We have been reading the story of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. We are having lots of fun putting actions to the story; acting out the story in the home corner, small world and outside. We have also been talking about our families and how they are special to us. 

We've been on a hunt to find the Three Bears cottage! They left us a letter asking us to keep a look out for Goldilocks. They also left us some porridge to try!

Our first worship in the hall with Mrs Coates to learn all about how our donations will help the food bank and provide families in Tanzania with electricity.

Remembrance Day - We made poppies and hung them up outside to remember the people who have given their lives to keep us safe.

This half-term we are starting with the story Whatever Next! Baby Bear has used his imagination to go to the moon. We have been thinking about what we would take to the moon and where else Baby Bear might go, as well as acting out the story.

We have also been playing in the Imagination Station, dressing up and using our imagination to pretend we are other people. We are astronauts, knights, princesses, builders and teachers! 


Watch the story below and imagine where you might go.....!

As your grown-ups cannot come into school, here are some pictures so you can tell them all about it smiley

Superhero role play, crafts, fruit tasting, smoothie making and superhero day! Wow we have been busy having fun.

We have carried out activities to learn about the true meaning of Easter and how Jesus died to save us


We have also made Easter cards, sweet treats and been on an Easter hunt. We followed the trail left by the Easter Bunny and found some delicious treats. We also worked as a team to collect all the jewels in the pot and get a prize. 

We practised our sequencing skills by making jam sandwiches. We followed the instructions carefully.
