Welcome to our class page!

Teacher - Mr Puddick 

TA - Miss McNeill

Welcome to Reception. It has been so nice to see all the smiling, happy faces every day! In Reception we will be using the story ‘My World, Your World’ to introduce the children to the theme for the Autumn term. We will share the story with the children and focus on different parts of the story. We will use this to look at where the children live and who lives with them. The children will make their own houses and draw their families inside. In Maths, we will be learning how to count to 10 and recognise numbers up to 10. We will also be looking for numbers in the environment and playing maths games. In RE we will be learning about our families and learning about God’s love for all of us. Then later in the term we will be learning about Baptism. In Phonics children will be learning the initial sounds using the Read, Write, Inc. Phonics scheme.

PE Kit 

Reception will be starting their PE lessons from Thursday 10th September. We will be having PE lessons every Thursday so please can you make sure that your child comes to school with their PE kit on.

The school PE kit consists of a plain white t-shirt, a pair of black shorts and a pair of pumps.



In Reception the children will recive homeowk on a Monday. This is expected to be returned by Thursday, so there is enough time for the work to be quarantined. If you need any help or support you can speak to Mr Puddick.


In the Foundation Stage we use an app called ‘Tapestry’ to record your child’s progress. You can access this at home by visiting and entering your username and password.

If you would like your login details, then please speak to Mr Puddick.
