Welcome to Reception Class

Class Information

Hello and welcome to the Reception Class web-page.  

We have lots planned for this Autumn term and are kick-starting our school year with a very exciting topic of 'When I Grow Up...'                          

Do keep an eye on our  Twitter feed @mwpsclassR to see what we are getting up to!

Please do feel free to talk to us about any questions or concerns you have.  We are happy to talk over the phone or make an appointment after school.

Many thanks,                                                        Ellie Madden


Some Useful Information for Reception Class


Phonics teaching happens daily within school and your child will have a phonics folder in their bookbag. Within the folder, you will find a range of phonics flashcards and activities that you can complete with your child at home. This is not 'homework' but will be beneficial to your child the more they practise. 

Muddy Monday

Muddy Monday will take place on a Monday morning. We visit the forest in all kinds of weather so please ensure your child has the correct clothing; waterproofs and wellies are essential!


PE will be taught on a Tuesday afternoon and will be a combination of outdoor and indoor. Your child needs to have black shorts/skirt and a white t-shirt with outdoor trainers.  A black or navy tracksuit is useful for outdoor PE sessions. 


Children should be reading with someone at home every day. We ask you to read with your child for 10 minutes a day and we will do the same within school to ensure your child is reading for 20 minutes a day. Guided reading in class will be in groups with the class teacher / teaching assistant.
