Well done Reception!

A huge well done to all children in Reception for completing their first week in school. We are so proud of how well you have come in each day, settled down, followed the new routines and played so well together with your new friends. Thank you also to parents and carers, who have been very supportive with the system of dropping your child at the door. This has worked really well! Please do bear with us next week when we have all 30 children to pair up to the right person at hometime. It may take us a little longer to begin with, but we need to make sure every one goes home safely.

We will begin to send home photos soon either on the website or via the EvidenceMe app. We are just waiting for some final consent slips to ensure we only send out photos of those who have permission.

Please could we thank those who have already sent in their beautifully decorated Learning Journey covers and EvidenceMe consent slips. If you have not done this yet, please could we ask for those as soon as possible so we can stick the covers to your child’s brand new book.

Have a wonderful, well deserved break over the weekend and we look forward to seeing all of you on Monday morning.

Welcome Reception Class 2021!

Welcome Reception Class 2021!

We are really looking forward to meeting you all next week for your first ever week in big school. We can’t wait to meet you all and get to know you.

We are so proud already of how brave you will all be coming in to your new classes. We know parents will be keen to see your classroom and we will let you know when we can invite you in to see your new environment.

A reminder that for the first week only, you will have been allocated either a morning or afternoon session. From the second week, you will stay for the whole day and enjoy your first school lunch together.

PE days for Reception are on a Wednesday and a Thursday and you can come dressed in your smart PE kits on those days. We will send further info about Forest Schools later in the week.

Attached to the end of this message is a reminder of Reception Class Information and things you will need for school. We have also attached an overview of our curriculum and the things your child will be learning about this term.

We will be sending home our ‘Home School Communication and Reading Diary’ in the first week. However, if you have any queries, then please do email us directly on our year group email  newdale.yearrteam@taw.org.uk

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. See you all on Monday.

Farewell Reception

Hello Reception,

We would like to say a massive well done for a wonderful first year in school. You have made us exceptionally proud this year, working hard every single day, whether that be in school or at home. We will miss you very much, but you are more than ready to move on to Year 1 and learn lots of new, wonderful things.

Have a happy, fun-filled, safe holiday and we look forward to seeing you next year. We will be sure to pop in and say hello to see how you are getting on.

Watch out on the website for a special video coming soon to show your last few days of fun with your friends…

Year Reception Show and Tell

For the last day in Reception (Tuesday 20th July ), we would like to invite you to bring in 1 toy to take part in this years very last show and tell.


We know how much you love show and tell and couldn’t think of a better way to end the year. We love hearing about your precious things and about all the things that make you special.


Please make sure your precious toy is clearly  labelled with your name so that we can ensure they go home safely with you for the holidays.


Thank you, The Reception Team.
