Thank you for your ongoing support.

A message for the children:

Hello Stay at Home Superheroes!

I look forwards to seeing photographs or video clips of some of the amazing learning you will be doing at home. Don't forget to use your new Home Learning Books for writing and drawing your ideas. You can also use your book for recording numerals, drawing shapes and anything else that interests you. Have lots of fun.

Remember to do a daily Wake and Shake!

Mrs Franek. 

Welcome to Reception Class.


I am fortunate to be supported by the following team:

Mrs Bevins, Mrs Wilkinson, Mrs Delmaine, Mrs Hatfield and Mrs Crocker.


Useful publication:

What to expect, when? A parents’ guide

The purpose of this booklet is to help you as a parent/carer find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS. Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. This booklet has been written to help you as a parent know what to expect during these vitally important years by focusing on the seven areas of learning and development which are covered in the EYFS.


For more detailed information about our learning every half term, please look out for our class newsletter which will shortly be available and located at the bottom of this page.




If you would like to come in and talk to the children about a current job related to our topic, please speak to one of the EYFS team.



Habits Of Mind: There will be a different focus each week. Please ask your child for more information.


Growth Mindset: Please talk to your child about Ruby Reflection and Robert Resilience. What do Ruby and Robert like to do in school? 



Useful reminders:


A water bottle and warm waterproof coat should be brought into school every day. PLEASE NAME ALL ITEMS. Thank you.



Show and Tell: (one topic related item only)

Reading books and Reading Records: Books go home. Please make a short comment about your child's reading and interest in the book/s. If you have any queries please come and see me. Reading books and records should be kept in your child's book bag every day (see below for return details).



Home Learning books and Phonics books: these need to be returned to school so they can be updated.

Cooking: On alternative weeks (usually topic related). Thank you for your contribution towards the cost of ingredients.



Reading books and Record books: these need to be returned so they can be changed and ready for Monday.

Phonics books and Home Learning books: go home at the end of the day.

P.E: Please make sure that a PE kit is in school at all times (it can be left on your child's peg until the end of each half term).

Library day: we visit our school library and select one book to bring home each week. Please make sure that library books are returned every Friday morning prior to our next visit. Unfortunately we are not able to issue a new book unless the previous on has been returned.

Georgia Rabbit and Hugo Dog: go home at the end of the day and they should be returned on Monday morning. Please see below for further information about Georgia Rabbit and Hugo Dog.



Hugo Dog.


Hugo is our cuddly dog. He will be coming home for the weekend with your child sometime during their time in reception. Here is a message from him:


Hello, my name is Hugo Dog and I am pleased that I am coming home with you this weekend. I have brought lots of things with me in my special bag as I will need to change my clothes and brush my teeth after eating. Please bring me back to school on Monday morning and don't forget to write about our adventures (on an A4 sheet) for your Learning Journey. You can add photographs if you like! I am looking forward to having lots of fun with you.


Please make sure you pack my belongings in my bag on Sunday. If any of them get lost or broken they will need to be replaced please as I plan to visit all the children in our class.


With love from


Hugo xx
