Welcome to our Reception class page. We hope you enjoy the journey that your child goes on throughout their first year in school. It will be a very exciting one!

We aim to update the web page frequently to show each and every step that takes them on that journey, so please check back from time to time. 


Just a few points to note: 

PE will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please send in a clearly labelled PE kit. 

Water bottles are required daily- again clearly labelled. 

If you have any questions or need a chat, please do not hesitate to make an appointment after the school day. 

Many thanks, 

Mrs. Maguire and Mrs. Rimmer
