Thursday 22nd July 2021


As we have now reached the end of our year in Reception, we'd like to wish you all a final 'Good evening'! 

Throughout our final three days in Reception, we've done our very best to ensure that all of our children's wishes, regarding 'chosen activities', were met.


Thank you all, SO MUCH, for your kind and very generous end-of-term gifts. They are very much appreciated but, we'd like you to know that, each and every one of your children have been an absolute delight to teach this year and we only wish that we could keep them forever!


To better support the children's transition to Year 1, we have decided to issue them with their Learning Journals and RE books on their first morning in Year 1. We found this to be most beneficial last year and, owing to the current restrictions placed upon moving from class to class, not to mention that, due to the enforced closure of Year Group bubbles and the isolation/redeployment of staff, your children only got to meet their Year 1 teacher yesterday morning, we have decided to repeat this procedure. 


We do hope that all of our children are aware that, on their first day in Year 1, Mrs Hayes, Mrs Forsyth and Mrs Sweeney will all be waiting to see you at the gate, just as we've always done!


Wishing you all a peaceful and restful Summer break and looking forward to seeing you all on September 6th. Thank you SO MUCH for lending your precious children to us for a short while, they've all been an absolute credit to you. 


God bless,


The Reception Team
