 A very warm welcome to Reception Class



Your Reception Team is:

Miss Hickman - Class Teacher




Dear Reception. 


A very big welcome from us to all our families from nursery and reception class.

We hope that you enjoy the learning journey that your child is continuing through the foundation stage of their education and we are sure that you will be amazed by the progress that they make.

We begin our day with class registration (meet and greet). We use RWI Phonics where our children learn to read and write from the start.

We will do a lot of learning through play, by exploring and investigating and we will be led by the children's current interests during the continuous provision.


With your support the sky's the limit!




We strongly believe that your child will do better if we work as a team. If you have any worries or concerns about your child, please do let us know so that we are aware. You may message on Class Dojo or, if you prefer, you can send an e-mail to the office. Alternatively, contact us on the playground before and after school if it’s a quick word you need. Please read our newsletter with latest information and like our posts on our Facebook page
