Reception Class 2023 - 2024

Miss Berks


Welcome to Reception Class!


We have lots of wonderful activities planned for the year ahead and we are so excited to tell you about them. 

In Reception, our class teacher is  Miss Berks and our teaching assistants are Mrs McDonald, Mrs Lamb and Mrs Crompton. Mrs Gannon looks after us at lunch times.

Children are allowed to bring a water bottle into school each day. These should be clearly labelled with your child’s name and should only contain water.

Everyday, fresh fruit or toast (payable) is available at morning snack time or alternatively children may bring in their own healthy snack.

Every Wednesday afternoon is 'Wellie Walk Wednesday'. This involves exploring our wonderful outdoor school surroundings, identifying different minibeasts and observing seasonal changes. We ask that children bring a pair of wellington boots at the start of the year. Wellington boots will be kept in school and returned at the end of the school year.

Friday is our P.E. day. Children can come into school wearing their school P.E. kits on this day. This means that P.E. kits do not need to be kept in school.


Newsletter can be viewed on our school's website.

Milk money (£6.00) please pay electronically or speak to the school office.

Toast for snack please pay electronically or speak to the school office.

School Levy (£10 per family) please speak to the school office.
