Welcome to our Reception class page! Here you can find out what the children have been learning about this year.

For updated guidance that outline our school plans for returning to school in September please download our ‘Guide for Parents and Families’.

As we prepare for our move to Year 1, Mr MacKenzie has prepared a short video as part of our online transition. Click the link below.

Please scroll down the page for Home learning information during school closures.

Safeguarding: if you have concerns about the welfare of a child during school closures, please visit our page here:

The children take part in P.E. lessons every Friday afternoon. Children must attend school in their full school uniform on this day but bring their P.E. kit with them to get changed in to. Homework will be sent out every other Monday. Children are expected to read at home daily and home reading books will be changed weekly – please see the front of your child’s reading wallet for the day their book will be changed.

For regular updates, photographs and information, please follow us on Twitter. You can find our class page and also follow our whole school
