Welcome to Reception Class


My name is Mrs Austin- I’m the class teacher. Mrs Porter is the class learning support assistant. We are looking forward to getting to know your children and supporting their learning.


The Reception year will be carefully planned to give the children the opportunities to experience a wide variety of stimulating activities through structured play situations so that learning will be fun. Play is very important to children. It can be very messy as your child will be learning both inside the classroom with sand, water, paint, but also in the outdoors with mud, leaves etc. so you can expect some mucky clothes at the end of the day!


We keep a two way communicate with home via DOJO online and a home school book. Teachers are also available at the end of the school day for queries.


Place any money including dinner or fruit money in an envelope with your child’s name, the amount and a note in the book. Bags will be checked daily for notes.


Fruit is given at break time, children can bring their own or buy from school at £1.50 per week to be paid at the beginning of the week.


Mile a day happens every morning weather permitting, keeping pupils healthy in mind and body.


PE is on a Wednesday for Reception - please ensure that your child wears the appropriate kit into school.


Please call in to speak to me with any questions.


Kind Regards


Mrs. Maria Austin
