Reception updates

If you need to contact me please email:

Please note I will reply within 48 hours.

Following our Parentmail e-mail on 7 July 2021, please click here for our Transition to Y1 leaflet which will help your child moving up the school.



On Thursday the children, if they would like to, will be sampling dated (pitted).  Please can you let me know via the class email if your child has an allergy to them.





Next Tuesday is our class party.  We are therefore asking parents to send in £1 (if they are able to) by Friday 16th July so that we can purchase some party food/drinks over the weekend.


As we are nearly at the end of the children's Reception year :( I have downloaded all of the children's learning journey's on Tapestry.  They are currently being processed but should be available for you to download tomorrow (if not before).  Please can you download them by Wednesday 21st July as the children's accounts will be deleted on this day.

Many thanks

Mrs Jackson


Hi all

Reception will be going on a little trip next Wednesday (14.07.21) to Norman Booth park.  We will leave at 9:30 and return at 11:30.  Lunch arrangements will continue as normal.  We will take the children's snacks and water bottles.  

A little bit of normal!

Mrs Jackson



I just want to say a massive 'thank you' for all of my lovely 'Thank A Teacher Day' messages.  Your kind words really do mean so much to me.  Your children are a pleasure to teach, and I love spending time with them.  Go team Reception!

Hi everyone,

Just a couple of quick messages.

Next week PE will swap from Tuesday to Wednesday.

Please can you send into school any cardboard boxes (cereal boxes would be ideal) as we are going to make individual beanstalks.  Please send these in as soon as you can.

Many thanks

Stacey Jackson



Hello everyone

Hello everyone

I have uploaded the children's summer term homework onto the homework section of this page.  One of the most vital parts of the children's homework is to read regularly at home - ideally for a few minutes everyday.  I have noticed recently that, as a class, the children have not been doing this and the number of children we have changing their books has significantly declined since we have come back from lock down.  I completely understand that it is another thing to try and squeeze into busy family life but even 5 minutes a day will make a big difference.  Children at the end of Reception are expected to...

  • Say a sound for each letter in the alphabet and at least 10 digraphs.
  • Read words consistent with their phonic knowledge by sound-blending.
  • Read aloud simple sentences and books that are consistent with their phonic knowledge, including some common exception words. 

We listen to the every child read in school once a week but this alone will not support them enough.  We really need your help with regular practise at home.  I have told the children today that I do not expect them to read their whole book in one go, just a few pages every night is better than nothing.  I have told the children that if they read their books and need them changing the will move their pegs up and get 2 tokens (they were very excited by this).

Thank you again for your continued support

Mrs Jackson
