Growing together in faith, love & learning

Welcome to Reception Class


Our learning and fun starts here!  

We are now taking the ‘big step’ of starting school. Our teacher is Miss Quellin and we have a fabulous class teaching assistant, Mrs Berry.  They teach us lots of new things and help us to have fun and be happy in school. 

In Reception, we love to learn, playing indoors and outdoors. We love to explore, be curious, face new challenges, become independent and make lots of new friends.

Our Teachers observe us at play, to help them understand and support us in our learning and development. They get to know us as unique little people with special skills, interests and ideas (recognising how we learn). They encourage us to do our very best.

In school we love to read and explore the world of books. We ask that our Mummies, Daddies or Grandparents read with us every night and sign our Reading Record Book to show that an adult has listened to us read. Let’s catch the Reading Bug!

Here in Reception, it is a joy watching your child grow and develop, and we would like to celebrate all their achievements - whether they happen at School or at home with you.  We love to hear from you about the things your child enjoys or achieves.  We encourage Parents to share in their child’s achievements and you will have lots of opportunities to do this over their Reception year.  

We look forward to the year ahead and seeing your children grow in Faith, Love and Learning, as they start their Learning Journey in Reception.
