Reception 2020 - 2021

Mr Philips

Hello and welcome to Reception!

The Reception team this year is Mr Philips, class teacher and Miss Allington, teaching assistant.

Please see a Welcome video from us.

We are really looking forward to a new start this year and to welcoming back the children in September.

Key Information

PE Days

In Reception, we have PE on a Monday so please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school each week and we will send them home at the end of each half term to be washed. Please make sure all items are labelled including all uniform items.


We will begin our daily Phonics program 'Read Write Inc' after the children have had a chance to settle in and children will have the sounds they are working on stuck into their planners for you to support at home.

Reading Books

As children progress with their phonics we will begin to send home individual reading books. When your child receives their reading book, please ensure that their planner is signed each time you hear them read and make a short comment as to their progress.


Please see the Curriculum page for more detailed information about the curriculum Reception children will follow.


Watch the videos below for some handwriting guidance.
