We love God, we love learning, we love each other


Welcome to our Reception Class page, where we love to learn through play!

The teachers in Reception are Miss Bain, Mrs Hollick, Miss Wallis and Mrs Garret.


This half term our topic is Fairytales! We are looking forward to reading lots of traditional tales and exploring plot, characters and settings. We will look at character descriptions, make story maps and retell stories through roleplay, music and drama.


Things to do at Home

Things that you can do at home to help your child are to:


  • Practise name writing. Please make sure your child uses lower case letters except for their initial letter and correct letter formations.
  • Share reading books, discussing plots, characters and their feelings, as well as simply decoding the text. Please practise your child’s keywords which will be sent home in their reading wallet every Friday.
  • Practise independent skills such as dressing and zipping up their own coats.




PE will usually take place on Thursday this year so please ensure your child has their kit in school with their name clearly marked.

Please continue to check the class page for more information throughout the year and to find out what we have been working on in class. We are looking forward to working together so that your child has a very exciting and successful year!


If you are unsure of anything at any time or wish to see us about anything concerning your child please do not hesitate to come and speak to us.


Yours Sincerely


Miss Bain and the EYFS Team
