Reception 2023 - 2024

Welcome to Reception...

Hello and welcome to our wonderful Reception class!

Our teachers in Reception are Miss Baxter and Miss Blackledge. Assistant Teachers are Mrs Millward, Miss Powell, Miss Stewart, Mrs Hornsby, Mrs Hewitt, Miss Carroll and Mrs Green.   

If you have a child in Reception, here are some things that you need to know:

Toast money is £1 per week and is collected on a Monday morning for the week ahead.

Our PE day is Friday. Children will need their PE kits in school.

RKB attend swimming sessions every Monday and RLB attend swimming sessions every Thursday. Children will need to bring a full swimming kit into school on those days. 

We are fortunate to have a wonderful outdoor area which we use everyday rain or shine. Could you please ensure that your child is sent to school with appropriate footwear and warm clothing on wet and windy days. It would be ideal if your child could bring a pair of wellies to leave in school to use during wet weather along with a change of clothes...just in case!

For Reception children, lunches are free. However, if you would prefer to send a packed lunch you are welcome to do so.

RWI sessions start at 9.10am. Could you please make sure your child is on time every morning so that they do not miss this vital reading and writing lesson.

Book bags will be sent home every day containing a reading book and a story to share at bedtime with a reading record. Book bags need to be brought back to school every day so that we can earn our reading stars. To make progress in reading, we recommend that you read with your child every day. When you have read, could you please write a short comment in their reading record to tell us how they managed with the books. We also send lots of reading activities, songs, RWI video lessons and much more via School Spider each week. Please check in regularly.  

Please stay tuned and keep a regular eye on your Spider app for class updates and key messages.

If you can't access this or need any further information, please email us on the following addresses:

Could you ensure that school has a current completed data sheet and phone number for your child’s emergency contacts. Please inform the office as soon as possible if there are any changes to phone numbers, addresses or list of people who may be collecting your child.

Please check back to our page regularly as there will be an abundance of photographs for you to see!

We are looking forward to a wonderful year with our Reception superstars!
