Useful information

A Typical day in our Reception Class

The day will usually begin with a whole class session in which children gather together on the carpet area for the teacher's input. Following this, children will then continue working in a focused group or will be directed to self-initiated learning activities. Children enjoy following a class topic in addition to other exciting and enjoyable learning activities and parents will be notified of the various topics so that they may get involved with children’s learning at home.

There is no formal homework set in Reception class. However, little tasks are set from time to time for children to pursue at home if they wish.

Reading and Phonics

You will be asked to read with your child every day and sign their reading journal to indicate that you have done so. Please also encourage your child to read and spell keywords that will be sent home. The importance of these activities cannot be overemphasised as they will have a huge impact on a child's ability to learn and make progress. There will also be a parent phonics session during the first term of school to explain how phonics is taught in the classroom and ways you can support your child at home. 

Keeping in touch

We operate an ‘open door’ policy so Reception staff will always be available should you have a question or a concern.

We regularly send information and newsletters home to keep you up to date with what is happening in school.
