Reception 2021 Guided Tour
We have created a guided tour of the school and reception area for you and your child to become familiar with the staff and environment. Please share this with your child before the Stay and Play sessions in July so that they become familiar with the faces they will see in school and the environment. We hope you find this useful.
One Way Entry System into School
The video below shows you the one way system to enter the school grounds.
Class Information Sheets
The class information sheets contain photographs of the staff in each class and the class environment. We would suggest you look at this regularly with your child so that they become familiar with the faces they will meet and the places they will use. It would be a great idea to put this up on the fridge or somewhere where they will see if regularly.

Suzie goes to school
This is a book to share with your child about a child starting school. It will give your child an opportunity to look at this from another child’s perspective. Starting school can be a scary time for children (and for parents), talking to your child about starting school and what will help will prepare them for their new adventure.
Reception Ready Poster
The poster below will help your child to take the steps they need to be Reception ready. Look at the steps your child can already complete and tick them off. Use the steps your child is not yet able to do as targets to work towards with your child to help them gain the skills they will need for reception. We completely understand children are at different stages in their development, this is a guide only.
My First Day at School Game

Getting to know your teachers
The class teachers have prepared some videos of them reading stories for your child to listen to at home. Listening to the teachers reading the stories will help your child to become familiar with who their class teacher. Please share these with your child.
