Thank you for visiting our class page! This section of our website contains photographs, examples of work and activities that take place within the reception classroom, important messages and useful tips to help you support your child at home. We really hope you continue to visit our page and follow the exciting journey our reception children take over the course of the year. Enjoy!



Good morning,


WOW! What a fantastic first week we've had. The children have been absolutely fantastic in settling into their new classroom, learning new routines and meeting their new teachers and friends. 

This week we have based our learning around the text 'The Rainbow Fish'. We have explored creatures under the sea, played pairs with sea creatures, played various sealife related games and talked about 'scales' especially the shimmering scales of the Rainbow Fish.

We have also introduced phonics sessions. This week's focus has been on hearing initial sounds in words, in particular 'm' and 'a'. Don't forget to try out the 'Odd sound out' game from the link below if you haven't done so yet.


I would like to send out a couple of reminders please. We will be starting P.E. next Monday 21st September. Please could we ask that your child's pumps are in school on Monday so that we can place them in their P.E. bags ready for the afternoon.


Also, On Friday 25th September, we will be selling cakes at the end of the school day to Reception Parents. The money raised will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.


Thank you so much for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you next week for another week of learning and fun!

Hi everyone! I managed to speak to a couple of parents at home time today but for those I didn't manage to see, we have been playing a game this week in Daisy Class called 'Odd Sound Out'. You can find this game on the link below. We have been using this game to encourage the children to hear the initial (first) sound in each word and to spot mistakes. I would be thrilled if you could play this game at the weekend with your child and I look forward to seeing the progress next week.

Have a great weekend!

Transition Day Fun

What a fantastic group of children! The Daisy Class staff have had a wonderful start to the term meeting our brand new daisies. We are very much looking forward to the year ahead. We hope everyone has come home with a big smile and are looking forward to returning next week for their half day sessions.

Daisy Class 2020-2021

Families that are joining our Daisy Class Team in September you will be happy to hear that our classroom has had a makeover! As we are keen to ensure a smooth transition for our children, I have taken some photographs of the classroom for you to have a little look at with your child. It would be lovely if you could have a little chat about what you can see and maybe discuss some of the exciting resources that your child may like to play with. We are looking forward to meeting you all and working together as a team to ensure your child has the best start to their school life.


If you are unsure of your dates and times for the transition days in September, please refer to the letter I have sent out in the post or alternatively email our school office and we will be in touch as soon as possible.


Many Thanks

Miss Rainford (Class Teacher and EYFS lead)
