Mrs Madden's Class 


Welcome to Reception! An exciting new adventure for you, the next chapter of your lives. 

Please see below some general information for the year ahead. This page will also be updated with photographs and any news that we may have to share with you.



Phonics will be taught daily and your child will be given a phonics folder that will have all of the information in that you need, so that you continue to develop your child's understanding at home. Their phonics folder will be updated weekly with the new phonemes that we have learnt. 



In your child's book bag you will find a reading book. Please share this book with your child discussing the pictures, what the story is about and what they think may happen next. Your child will also have a yellow reading record in their bag. Please record in here when you have read the book with your child so that we can ensure it gets changed within the day.


Wellies in the Woods

Wellies in the woods will be held every Tuesday afternoon. Here, we will explore the outdoor area, get very muddy and have lots of fun! Please sure your child has waterproofs, warm clothes and wellies in school for this session. If your child does not have their kit, they will not be able to attend the session. 



If you have any questions or worries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
