Welcome to Reception!
Welcome to Reception!
Within Reception you will find two classes they are called Busy Bees and Creative Caterpillars!
Please visit your child's year group page often to ensure that you do not miss any updates. We will be adding lots of important information and dates on to the Reception page to ensure you do not miss out on anything.
Oral health is of great importance within the early years of life. Getting children into good habits is vital from a young age. Please see below information for more support on increasing oral health at home.
Welcome To Reception Information Evening:
Text to Parent:
- When sending a text to Reception we will start our messages with YR which refers to the whole reception cohort. This will hopefully cut out confusion if you have multiple children within the school.
- If you receive a text with BB or CC at the beginning this has been sent only to your child's class.
- Some parents who have the application for Text to Parents often miss out on messages. I will highly recommend that you delete the app so you will receive texts as normal to your phone.
- You can reply to the text system as you would to a normal message
To ensure that communication remains at a high standard we are still contactable through our class email addresses. Please use the email addresses as you wish.
Busy Bees - firstname.lastname@example.org
Creative Caterpillars - email@example.com
If it is a message that is urgent i.e. change to collection plans then please contact the school office.

We have been working really hard this year already! Here are some of our books that we have been reading in class...
In Autumn we started by learning about each other and ourselves. We settled into our new classrooms and made many new friends!
This year we have been very lucky we are the first ones to use our brand new outdoor area - we LOVE it!
We have enjoyed learning about our town Biddulph we used Google Earth to explore Biddulph too.
Autumn 2 -
Lots of first times happened for us this half term!
We learnt about special events such as bonfire night, Halloween, Autumn changing into Winter and Christmas. We had to work as a team to keep our outdoor area clean and tidy...
We had a VERY cheeky visitor who arrived on the 1st December and made quite a lot of mess in our rooms!
Spring 1 -
Spring 1 Core Books Rec 22 - During this half term we will be focusing on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them! We will immerse ourselves into the wonderful world of story-telling and adventures. We will be aiming to spark the children's love from reading and take them on adventures within their own imagination!
Spring 2 -
Reception Core Book Spring 2 - During Spring 2 we will be focusing on changes within the world around us. We will be getting to know much loved characters such as Peter Rabbit and be meeting old favorites such as the Big Bad Wolf! Please use our Core book offer to support learning at home and to keep up to date on your child's journey throughout this half term.
Wow. We cannot believe that is it Summer already - we still have lots of amazing things ahead of us in Reception!
