Dream Believe Achieve


Our teacher in Reception is Miss Johnson and she is helped by Mrs Maddock and Miss Williams.

It has been an exciting start to Reception and we are looking forward to teaching you this next year and hope you will enjoy your time in Reception.

Some work will be challenging, but it’s lots of fun too!

Welcome to Reception!


We update our Seesaw page on a daily basis with lots of photos and videos, so parents and carers feel connected to their child’s learning. Parents enjoy responding back with comments.

Getting to Know You!

We have spent the first half term getting to know each other and building up positive relationships. We have enjoyed various shared story sessions, which have focused around families, emotions and friendships. We have been expressing our own feelings in different ways and learning to consider the feelings of others.



Meet Geraldine! She is helping us with our phonics at home! Geraldine sets us challenges to find things at home that start with a chosen initial sound.

Our Kindness Postcards!

We have drawn pictures to give to other people. We have drawn them for friends, family members and neighbous. We really enjoyed doing this and we were really excited to deliver them.

Our free communication app allows us to provide parents with instant access to our important messages and up to date school information.

Please contact the school office if you have not received your personal invite.
