Welcome to St Peter's Reception class page.

My name is Miss Barrett and I am the Reception class teacher. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Noble, who is a vital part of our team.   

. We know that transition can be big and scary for little ones but we will be here to make sure it is a happy one. 

We are both thoroughly looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you all.

 PE will take place on TUESDAYS. Please ensure your child has the correct indoor and outdoor PE kit in school at all times. All children also have daily access to our outdoor provision.


Outdoor Learning

We love outdoor learning in Reception! Please ensure your child has a pair of wellies to keep in school all year. Please make sure they have their name inside them.


Reading Books

Reading books (along with key words, sounds and numbers) will be sent home every Monday, to be returned on Friday please. Discussing pictures is a vital part of a child's development when they first start school, so please use the advice at the back of each book to question your child about their reading.

Oxford Owl is a fantastic site, on which you can access lots of reading books, just like the ones we send home from school. They are all colour banded, just like the ones we have in school, so the children will be familiar with them.

You can see below our end of year expectations for your children, the Early Learning Goals, which we will be striving to achieve, and also the curriculum overview for each half term.
