Reception 2 Mrs Pentith

Hello and welcome to Reception 2’s page!

Hello and welcome to our class page.


Throughout the year we will use this page to keep you updated on what we are learning. There will be photos, videos and information for you to look at. 


For now, we have put a couple of photos of the classroom so your little one or ones can have a look at their new classroom. If your child is a little nervous then talk about what they can see in the pictures, maybe they can find something to be excited about. 


We would just like to remind you of the hours for the first few days in Reception.


Wednesday 4th September 8.45 - 12.00 Children who attended our Nursery.

Thursday 5th September 8.45 - 12.00 Children who are new to school.

Friday 6th September 8.45 - 12.00 All children.


Monday 9th September 8.45 - 1.15 All children.

Tuesday 10th September 8.45 - 1.15 All children.


After this all children will be in school as normal, 8.45 - 3.15.


We are so excited to see you all.


Mrs Pentith and Miss Mealor smiley




Odd Socks


We read a book called ‘Odd Socks’ which is all about socks that get a hole in. The children suggested that we could “craft with them” we did!

Growth Mindset Video


As a school, we have been working hard to help the children understand that if they work hard they can achieve their dreams. This belief starts with us in Early Years. People may look at Reception as “playing” but it is so much more than that. Every day children learn new skills which will aid them throughout school and beyond. We learn to keep trying, to change our methods, to compromise and to have pride in our achievements. 


This video ... starring our very own Reception children ... shows how we can choose our learning and choose our tomorrow! We hope you enjoy it.
