Reception – Bay & Holly


Welcome to Reception - Holly and Bay!




We are now in the Autumn term and are enjoying our first few weeks at school.


We have lots of fun activities planned relating to our topics 'Families and People Who Help Us'  


We will fill this page with exciting class news, pictures of things that we have done, and website ideas for you to use at home!


Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your teacher know!

Have you seen the Children's Zone? Play games, and visit some cool websites.


Keep checking here to see what we have been up to.

Water Bottles angel

Please remember that children should bring a water bottle in to the class which they can drink over the day. Thank you


Reading Bookscheeky

We aim to change each child's reading book once a week, however this is depending on events and timetabled activity during the week. We ask that your child brings their book in EVERYDAY to ensure we can read with them and issue them a new book. 


Library Books laugh

On FRIDAY your child will have the opportunity to change their library book. Please ensure they bring their book in to avoid disappointment.


PE Kits frown

Both Holly and Bay have PE on WEDNESDAYS AND FRIDAYS.
Children should bring their kit and keep it on their pegs for the week. Please can we also ask all earrings (and any other jewellery items) are removed on these days prior to school.

We love reading! 

We love reading in reception. We have story time every day at 3 o'clock as well as enjoying stories in our cosy book corner throughout the day. 



We go to the library every Friday and choose a book to take home and share with our families and friends. 




We have a reading challenge board to encourage sharing our school reading book at home. For every 10 reads we are able to choose a prize from our class treasure box.

We also have a class cat called Sid. We take it in turns to take Sid home, share his story and write about our special time with Sid in his book.
