Reception 2021-22


Welcome to Reception with Miss Welsh

Mrs Hepburn and Mrs Taylor!

Our Topic is . . . S P A C E !

You can keep up to date with our learning through observations and pictures on Tapestry.

What happens each day? 


MONDAY: School Library Visit (Covid risk assessment allowing) 

Reading Books ALL Changed - Please still bring your reading book everyday. 

TUESDAY: Music with Mrs Hepburn in the afternoon. 
WEDNESDAY: PE Day - Please come to school in your PE kit & trainers every Wednesday.
THURSDAY: Forest School, Art or Science afternoon 
FRIDAY: Special Mention Assembly with Mrs Harrison 


Homework: Children in Reception should read their reading book at least 3 times per week and practise their phonics sound cards at home to accelerate their reading skills. If your child reads 3 times at home in one week, they get to move up a step on our super reading snake!  We also ask that children continue to practise their letter and number formation using the booklets in your parent pack throughout their time in Reception.
