Welcome to Duckling Class - Reception


Please ensure your child brings their reading book to school with them every day. When you hear your child read, please write in your child’s reading record, even if just a date and signature, as the children will receive stamps on a sticker chart for each day they have read outside of school. Once their bookmark has been filled, they can choose from the prize box.


Show and Tell

Each day, 3 children have the chance to bring something in from home and share with the class. The children know which day their show and tell is, however please ask if you want to clarify. 



The children each have a pink homework book and homework will be set weekly. The piece of homework will reflect the children's learning in school. Support your child if they need help or they may wish to complete it independently. 



PE sessions are on a Monday. Weather permitting, the children will go outside so please ensure they have suitable clothes. Please make sure PE kit is named to avoid any lost/mixed up items. PE kits generally stay in school and then we send them home at the end of each half term so they can be washed. 


School Uniform

Children have access to the outdoor area throughout the day so please ensure they have their coats with them everyday. When children take their jumpers off we encourage them to hang them on their pegs, however sometimes the jumpers may end up else where! Please ensure jumpers are named so we can identify any 'lost' ones. Any unclaimed will be put in the lost property area which can be found inside the school foyer at the office. 



We regularly upload observations to Tapestry to share what the children have been learning. Please upload and share any new skills or experiences the children have achieved outside of school. There is a parent guide attached below for anyone new to using Tapestry.  


If you have any other queries, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Kind Regards, Miss Alden.
