Reception Handbook for Parents

Key Information

Please check your child’s planner each day as we will use it to pass on messages to you and you can also use it as a way of communicating with us.  Please also sign the planner each day in the relevant box. 

Your child will receive ‘Golden Stamps’ inside their planner each day if their planner is signed, they have arrived at school on time, they have brought their reading book to school and that they have followed school rules.

Please read with your child each day and record this in their Reading Record.  We will also read with your child in school and change their reading books regularly.

Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child’s name, including their coat.

Our PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday.  Please ensure that your child wears their full PE kit to school on this day.  This can be a tracksuit in the colder weather.

You can also help your child to continue their learning at home by:

  • Reading their home reading books every day.
  • Reading books from home and reading other types of print – comics, newspapers, magazines, posters, leaflets.
  • Letter formation and writing: sentences, shopping lists, news about their weekend.
  • Counting sets of objects, thinking about what one more and one less than a number would be.
  • Looking for shapes in the world around them.
