Welcome to Reception 2023/2024 class page

Hello Peaches!



Peach class will have their first PE lesson next Friday. Please could you send your child into school every friday wearing PE kits and ensure that they have a water bottle. Thank you.


Reading books 

Please can you ensure that reading books are in your childs bag every Tuesday ready for us to collect them in. Thank you. 




Peach Class - Your class Teachers are Mrs Thompson and Mrs Murray.

                      Mrs Rodger is our wonderful Teaching Assistant.

Our Christian Value this half term is  Friendship

Our Heartsmart principle this half term is 'Fake is a Mistake!'


This is our classroom






During the morning, we have snack time where your can have fruit, and water or milk. Your children will need to bring a water bottle into school every day, please can you ensure they are filled with water and not juice, thank you. 


In Reception, we have a classroom and an outside area where we can play and explore, and there are many opportunities for you to have fun and learn.




Reading - We will read with children throughout the week, so please make sure your child has their bookbag in school every day, along with their school reading book and reading record (diary). Please re-read your child's book with them a minimum of 3 times during the week, as this helps them to build confidence and fluency with their reading. 

We provide the children with a reading book matched to their phonic ability - to be read by the child, to an adult, as well as a separate book from our school library to be shared at home to help the children develop a love of reading for pleasure.

Both the phonics book, and the library book will be changed once a week - on a Friday. Please ensure your reading book is returned by Tuesday so that we are able to start reading a new book and your library book by friday. 


If you have any questions or worries at any time, about anything related to school, please do just ask any of the Reception Team - we are all more than happy to help.


Stay safe and take care,

The Reception Team
