Welcome to Reception 


Our teacher is Miss Hodkinson and our teaching assistant is Mrs Sohail



Autumn 2


This half term we will be playing and learning in both our indoor and outdoor areas. We will choosing toys and equipment from the areas and using these in our play.  We will be becoming familiar with the class and school routines, and settling into our new school life.  We will be enjoying having our lunch in the hall with our friends and playing in the infant playground.  

We are starting to make new friends with the children in our class by playing with them in our areas, and listening and responding to what they say.  We are learning to initiating conversations with children and adults in school and become more confident sharing our ideas with others. 

When the class are more settled we will begin to come into the hall for assemblies, and will begin to have our PE sessions in the hall. 

We encourage children to bring in a healthy snack into school which they enjoy at playtimes. There is always piece of fruit available daily for your child to eat if you prefer. 

Please bring in water in a named water bottle which can be kept on the blue trolley in our cloakroom.



Below are some ideas of what you can do at home to help your child. When playing with your child at home, can you encourage them to:


  • put their own coat on, and fasten it independently 
  • Join in with familiar nursery rhymes and number rhymes  
  • listen to and follow simple instructions given by an adult
  • listen and respond to ideas expressed by others in a conversation 
  • begin to answer how and why questions about events in stories
  • listen to a story and talk about what happened in the story
