Reception 2020 - 2021

Mrs Rimmer

Reception class teacher

Welcome to Reception Class

I am Mrs Rimmer, Reception class teacher, and I'm really excited to meet my new class and have lots of fun learning together this year. Of course this year will be a little different, due to the pandemic, but my aim is to still have lots of fun and to make learning exciting and challenging. We are joined this year by Mrs Hurst, Ms Green and Mrs Freeman, as our class TA's.

Our School Day

Reception's day runs from 8.50am - 3.15pm. Please stick to these times as it is vitally important we keep our distance from other adults and bubbles. A member of staff (from Reception) will greet and release your child everyday from the playground. Please follow the instructions on the school website. Unfortunately we will not be able to engage in any discussion with parents/carers at these times, in order to prevent congregations on the playground. Please phone or email into school and I will contact you as soon as possible. If your child is ill and unable to come to school, please call the school office as soon as possible.

Weekly routine
Due to the current pandemic we will not be sending reading records home this year. Your child will still be issued with a reading book on a Monday and can then change it any day of the week, as needed. We will check Seesaw every Monday, so please update your child's page weekly to confirm how much your child has read. 

Children in Reception will have a games afternoon so will come to school in their PE kits for the day, this limits the amount of items brought into school. Children will not being a kit to school like they have in the past. Children in Reception will begin their sessions after October half term, more information will follow. All children will have continous access to outdoor play to develop their physical skills. 

Toast will be available every playtime for the children. The cost is £1 per week and needs to be paid on a Friday for the following week, or you can pay for a few weeks in advance if you choose. Unfortunately milk will not be available at the moment due to hygiene measures. 

Water bottles
Children are able to bring bottles of still water to drink throughout the day; it would be greatly appreciated if these could be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Other equipment

In Reception class we spend a lot of time outdoors, therefor your child will need a warm, waterproof coat and a pair of wellies that can be kept at school. 

Thank you,

Mrs Rimmer
