Reception 2021 - 2022

Hello and welcome to Reception!

In Reception is Mr Philips as Class Teacher and Miss Allington as Teaching Assistant.

Please see a Welcome video from us.

We are really looking forward to a new start this year and to welcoming back the children in September.

Key Information

PE Days

In Reception, we have PE on a Tuesday so please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school each week and we will send them home at the end of each half term to be washed. Please make sure all items are labelled including all uniform items.


We will begin our daily Phonics program 'Read Write Inc' after the children have had a chance to settle in and children will have the sounds they are working on stuck into their planners for you to support at home.

If you would like more information on Phonics and to help your child to learn to read at home, you can find a helpful video here:

Reading Books

As children progress with their phonics we will begin to send home individual reading books. When your child receives their reading book, please ensure that their planner is signed each time you hear them read and make a short comment as to their progress.


Please see the Curriculum page for more detailed information about the curriculum Reception children will follow.


In Reception, we will be focussing on letter formation. If you would like more information, you can find a useful document attached below.

Thank you for your continued support. We are looking forward to a fun filled year!

Mr Philips
