Learning without Limits

Reception 2020-2021

Welcome to Reception 

Here is some useful information about the year ahead:

  • The children will read to an adult on a Monday or Tuesday and they will come home with two books for the week. Please leave the home/school diaries in book bags every day and sign to say you have listened to them read. 
  • PE is on a Thursday. Please make sure their kit is in their locker all week with some spare clothes inside and everything is labelled.
  • All children should have wellies in school, if you have not done this please bring them in ASAP.
  • All children need a waterproof coat with a hood as we go out in all weathers.




Today we came into the classroom and somebody had trashed the home corner. There was porridge everywhere, chairs tipped over, footsteps and a pink clip on the floor. We became detectives and had to work out who had been in. After lots of thoughts we decided it must be Goldilocks as the smallest bowl had no porridge left! 

We spent the day writing letters to ask her to come back and tidy up, we made wanted posters to try and find her and we searched all the playground to find more clues.

What an exciting day we have had.... lets see if she comes back to tidy up!

All the children are settling in very well. They are making lots of new friends and getting to know myself and Mrs Dixon. The children have been trying their school lunches and most children have eaten well. If they don't like their dinner we will let you know so you can change their choice on Parent Pay. Our lunch time is now slightly earlier at 11.30am so we have decided not to have our snack in the morning but have it in the afternoon. They get a choice of milk or water and then a piece of fruit plus a cracker/ breadstick.


Here are some photos from our first week.
