‘Inspiring Independent Learners with Jesus by our Side’

Reception 2022 - 2023

Mrs Langton

Welcome to the Spring Term in Reception

Welcome back. We hope you've had a lovely break and are ready to continue the exciting school journey!

The children have all now settled into school life and are being well looked after by their Year 6 buddies. The spring term in Reception will again be very busy with our regular trips to the library and an exciting trip to Mrs Axford’s farm. More details to follow!

Keep checking our class page weekly for letters, information and pictures of all the fun activities that we have been doing. Any homework will be communicated on the homework tab on the class page.

Following the success of our Phonics evening for parents, we are planning a maths workshop. The date and information will be sent out soon.

Tapestry Learning Journey

Make sure that you look at your child’s Learning Journey via the Tapestry website; this will keep you up to date with what they are learning in school. Please remember that you can add your own comments, photos and videos of what your child is doing at home onto Tapestry. We love to read all about the exciting things that have happened at home and all of the WOW moments you notice.

Mystery Reader

This term we would like to invite mystery readers to read a story to the children in person or via Zoom. The children would love parents and family to be involved in our learning in this way. If you would like to take part in this, please let us know and we will set up a time that is suitable for you.

Stay and Play

As a school we are always looking for new ways to include our parents in the everyday life of the school. There will be further opportunities for you to visit us in our classroom for a ‘Stay and Play’ session. This will give you the opportunity to see your child in their school environment and to experience first-hand what life in Early Years is all about. We understand if you unable to attend but it would be lovely to see you if you can. We have tried to put the sessions on different days to allow a little more flexibility.

End of day collection 

If your child is going home with someone other than a parent/carer please make sure you inform the member of staff at the door in the morning or contact the school office.


PE kits will be sent home at the end of the half term (if they get very dirty we will send them home before!) This term, we will be having PE on a Wednesday afternoon and a Friday morning, but there may be extra sessions so it is easier to keep the kit in school to allow flexibility. To avoid us sending home someone else’s belongings, please can you ensure that you label all of your child’s school clothing. As I am sure you can appreciate, it is very difficult to match up the correct clothing to the child when they all look the same!

Please also remember that your child needs a pair of named wellington boots that will remain in school.

We look forward to continue working in partnership ith you this year. Your support at home really does make a huge difference. Don’t forget that we are here for you as well as your son or daughter. Please do not hesitate to make contact no matter how small you may think the issue may be.
