Reception Baseline Assessment. Parent Information 2023

In Summer, we will be further exploring our local area and focusing on the plants and how they grow. We will be travelling to other countries and comparing them to where we live including the Arctic, and India. We will be looking at the artist, Monet and looking at the past through the story of Peepo.  





    Some of the texts we will be looking at this term:








We have lots of fun in reception exploring, investigating  and learning new skills.


In reception we have daily maths sessions where we solve problems and explore all different kinds of concepts.


We use lots of fun resources and enjoy getting up and involved and working with partners. smiley

Here are some important notes for our adults to remember!


  • Our PE session is on a WEDNESDAY afternoon.  Please send your child to school in their PE kits. Please ensure your child is wearing the correct PE uniform e.g. black joggers / leggings, plain white T-shirt and a plain black hooded top with trainers.


  •  ALL uniform and PE clothes need to be named alongside all jumpers, cardigans, coats and jackets that your child may wear for school.  Please remember to remove any jewellery so your child can participate safely (if your child is wearing earrings they will not be able to participate for health and safety reasons).
  • We will have forest school every third Tuesday. Please refer to the letter shared at the beginning of the year for your class, or speak to your class teacher. Your child will need to come to school in suitable clothing for outdoor learning on these days.


  • We will change reading books during the week once the children have settled in (one new book per week). Please help yourself to one of our 1000 stories, which are put outside the classroom door every morning.


  • Every child is entitled to a free school dinner – give them a try, they’re yummy! The children can choose what they want every day, dependent upon food allergies or requirements.


  • Library books will be changed throughout the week and your child will be able to choose a book from our Library bus. Your child must have a book bag.


  • Your child should bring a named bottle of water to school.
