Welcome to the Reception class



All the children have settled in very well and have made new friends.

They enjoy trying new foods at dinnertime and have been very good at using knives and forks.


Our teachers are Mrs Foster and Mrs Lam.

Mrs Marlow and Mrs Gilliberti work in our class too.

PE days are Thursday and Friday but children need to have their kit in school from Monday to Friday please in case a change of clothes is needed.

Please remove earrings on PE days or send surgical tape to cover them. Thank you.


Reading folders and a bottle of water are also needed each day.

Parent time for this term began on Tuesday 5th September.

All parents are welcome to share time in class from the beginning of the day until 9.45am each Tuesday. Grandma, grandad, auntie or uncle are welcome to join us if mum or dad aren't free.

We hope you enjoy this special time with your children.


Having the time and opportunities to play at home with parents and by themselves is very important. Learning through play is also an important aspect of learning in the Reception class, as explained briefly in-

The Importance of Play
