Weekly Planners


Hello Everybody,

Welcome again to our Reception classes page. Here, you will find information about what we are learning and you will be able to see some of the fun activities that we will be doing at school. 

This term PE will be on Tuesday afternoons. Please remember to send children to school with their PE kit on these days (or earlier; it could be left at school): black shorts, leggings or joggers, blue T- shirt, plimsolls or trainers). Long hair should be tied back and earrings removed before coming to school or the tape provided so they could be covered.



Lunches - Please remember to complete all lunch orders and make us aware of any allergies or medical needs your child may require. Please remember that we are a NUT FREE school.



Here is a list of our weekly routines for your information:

Morning drop off:

Children can be dropped off at the playground at 8.45 and wait for adults to collect them each morning.

Water Bottles 

Children need a named water bottle in school daily. We encourage our children to drink water throughout the day and stay hydrated. Water is freely available from the tap in our classroom. Children can bring squash into school (no fizzy drinks or shakes), however we will not be able to refill this, we can only fill bottles with water.

Bottles will be sent home at the end of each day for washing.

Morning snack

Children in Reception are entitled to free school milk and fresh fruit each morning (free milk age restriction). If you wish to send your child to school with their snack, please make sure it is healthy. 


Please note that it is school policy that children do not bring toys to school unless requested to do so by the class teacher.

Please name all your child's clothing (including PE kits, hats, scarves, etc).

W/b 27th September 2021

Thank you so much for all the wonderful baby photos that you shared with us. Children (and adults) really enjoyed talking about themselves when they were babies and noticing all the differences, as well as their abilities- what they could do then and what they can do now.  

This week we will continue to talk about ourselves and our families. We will talk about who is in our family, how the families are different, the sense of belonging. 

See the weekly planner for more information. 

This week we will be learning about ourselves and what makes us special and unique. We will look at the photographs of us when we were babies and talk about the changes: the way we look, things we eat, what we wear, what we can do now that we couldn't do before. 

We will start the topic with a book 'What makes me a me' that you can listen to by clicking on the link below:

We will also learn a song about being different

This week Makaton sign is TOILET and HAND WASH. Ask your children to show you and use it all the time. Last week sign was HELLO and GOOD MORNING. Keep signing smiley 


Polite notice: 

Please remember to make sure that your children clothes are clearly labelled, as we already have few jumpers/cardigans with no names on them. ,
