Welcome to Reception. This will be an exciting and crucial first step in your child's educational journey. This year will be full of new learning experiences within the classroom, around the school and out in the community! We work within the same framework as your child's pre-school setting and it is in your child's best interests for us to work closely together. This ensures that our planning meets all your child's needs and most importantly is based on their interests which will allow them to make wonderful progress over the year.
In Reception, there will be many opportunities for you to help in the classroom and spend some time with your child in school. We will have some special open mornings throughout each term where you and your child will be able to explore the learning environment. Our door is always open, so please, if you ever have any worries about your child or need someone to talk to, you can always come and chat to a member of the Early Years Team. We are always here to help and listen.
I look forward to making some wonderful memories with your child as they embark on this exciting new journey into school.
Thank you from Chelsea Barron
Reception Class Teacher
