The building blocks for a bright future

Welcome to Reception !

Reception Class 2019/ 20

Meet our class

This year in Reception we have 12 children. 

Miss Shimmin- Class Teacher, Mrs Kirkbride HLTA, Mrs McCarthy STA

 Our goal is to support children in becoming confident, independent and creative individuals.


Home Learning-due to school closure.

The children will be taking home their folders with their reading book and phonics books inside. Children should be trying to strive for 5 (read five times a week) and to practice their phonics sounds. Children can practice the sounds taught so far, practice reading words that contain these sounds and writing sentences with these words. 

Planning will be added to this page daily. This is to be completed as a minimum amount. Please ensure that all written work has the date written at the top. 

For regular updates please check the famly and class dojo apps.
