Welcome to Reception!



November 2018


Dear Parents


Welcome to our new class page. I hope you had a wonderful half term break with your family. The children certainly worked during the first half term in school and are now fully settled into life at St Anne's. I'm sure that during this second half term we will continue to be very busy and work very hard.


This web page will give you some general information, a few useful web links and videos, information about your child's learning and development in school and will help you support your child at home. I hope you find it helpful and informative. 


If you have any questions or concerns through the year, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Staff in Reception Class:

General Information


The Parent Planner for Autumn 2 - 2018 has been posted in the Parent Planner Page


The pupil progress meetings dates have been put up on the Reception class door. Please sign up to attend. 


Music lessons with Mrs Taylor take place on Wednesdays.


PE lessons take place every Tuesday. Please make sure earrings are removed (or covered with tape/plasters) on this day and long hair is tied up.


If your child has a packed lunch, please think very carefully about the contents and ensure they are filled with healthy options. Children should not be bringing sweets or chocolate in their packed lunch.


General Reminders

  • Please check your child's reading packet every evening. They will be filled with letters, fliers, party invites, children's pictures etc
  • Please make sure that uniform, coats and drinking flasks are clearly named (if it moves or can be taken of - name it!) especially if your child has new uniform. If you use pen to write a name, please check this has not been removed after every wash
  • Please ensure that earrings are of a small stud style and removed if possible for PE days
  • Please make sure hair is tied up completely in ponytails or plaits and not in a half up / half down style to help stop the spread of head lice
  • If your child is late in the morning, please take them directly to the main office
