Reception Parent Presentation

 

We hope that you will find the presentation useful. It will hopefully answer the questions you may have about school routines, uniform and how you can help your child get ready for Reception.

Reception 2 Virtual Tour

 

As I am currently working in Nursery, I have not been able to video the classroom! I am very excited to move into Reception over the summer holidays and as soon as I have, I will create a video for you all to see! Please have a little look at Reception 1 to familiarise yourself with the areas and exciting enhancements we already have! I cannot wait to get busy in our classroom!

Reception Transition Story

 

We have created this document for your child. Please look at it together and talk about the pictures. Can they see things they like? Are they excited about wearing a new uniform? 

Reception Baseline Assessment - RBA

 

You may have heard in the news that from September 2021, all children in Reception will been completing a Baseline Assessment. This is in addition to our school baseline that we carry out at the beginning of the year, which helps us to get to know your children and it informs our weekly planning. 

 

Below is some information about how the Government RBA works, why it is being done and what your child can expect.
