Year R




Welcome to Reception!


My name is Mrs Hurford and I am the Reception class teacher.



Our teaching assistants this year are 


Mrs O'Neill



Miss Young



Mrs Lister








We visit Forest School when we can. Please keep wellies and waterproofs in school as we like to be prepared for all weathers!


Our PE day is Thursday. Please make sure you have your PE kit in a drawstring bag in school on a Thursday. We are developing our skills in dressing and undressing ourselves and trying to be independent in this.


We follow the Read Write Inc phonics programme. The children will bring home a book to share with an adult in the first term and then as their skills develop, they will bring a book from the reading programme to read to you. We ask that you please record their reading every week in the home communication book. Make sure this is signed and up to date and in school every Thursday so we can check it and give out new books.
