Keep practising writing simple sentences and reading as much as you can over the holidays.

Well done to all the children in RAS for their assembly. I am sure you will agree that all the children spoke loudly and clearly. Miss Smith and Miss J were very proud.

Parents’ Survey.

If you haven’t already completed the online survey could you please fill out the paper survey and hand it back to the class teacher ASAP. We would really appreciate you taking the time to let us know your thoughts about Reception. Thank you in advance.


Clothing for PE

As it is not compulsory for Reception children to wear a shirt and tie, could we please ask that on PE days children wear polo shirts. This would make changing much easier for both children and staff!

Thank you
