Reception - Age group 4 - 5 year olds

Start of the Day

All children enter the School grounds and follow the footsteps into the Upper School playground where they can play.  Children should not arrive earlier than 8.30am as there will be no adult supervision.  At 8.40am the whole School takes part in our daily exercise routine called Wake Up, Shake Up as part of our ’Healthy School Policy’ (please feel welcome to join in).  Our aim is for all children to become independent and confident in all they do.  To encourage this children are collected from the playground by their class teacher and are then led to their classrooms for registration. Each class has a number to line up at they are as follows:

Line 7– Cath Muir and Holly Hallin's Class

Line 9 – Lisa Robinson's Class

Children arriving late must report to the School Office to make sure they are marked as present and their dinner arrangements registered.  


End of the day (3.15pm)

Please pick up your child from their classroom at the end of the day, 3.15pm. 

Please ensure that the teacher who is responsible for your child, knows you are taking them.



The children in the Reception Class are not being given a specific scheme book to take home in their book bags until later on in the term. In the meantime they are free to take home any book from the book boxes.  You will receive further information when we start to allocate individual reading books to the children.


The children in Reception need to bring in their book bags every day.  This enables the staff to have regular access to your child’s current book, and it also makes carrying letters and pieces of work home a lot easier.  Please check your child’s book bag regularly for any letters, especially on a Friday when the Newsletter is sent home.



Please could you make sure that all the children’s clothes are named.  Even at this early stage in the term we have some brand new school jumpers in the lost property box.  Please also check that your child is wearing the correct clothes when they get home.

As the weather is getting more autumnal your child needs to bring in a coat, preferably with a hood, as the children need to be free to play outside at all times.



If your child has vomited or had diarrhoea you are reminded to please keep them off school for 48 hours to ensure that any germs do not spread to the other children and staff.   Also please remember to inform the School every day if your child is unwell.


We currently have a child who suffers from SEVERE ALLERGIC REACTIONS to EGGS and NUTS so please ensure that your child does not bring nuts to school, and that any packaging which is donated for junk modelling is free of egg boxes/nut packaging.
