  • Diamond Class

    Welcome to Reception!


    Diamond Class is taught by Mrs Kubis and Miss Williams-Day.

    Miss Ashton is in our class on a Monday and Friday.

    It is a privilege to support the Reception children as they learn about the world around them. Reception is a joyful place to be!

    Our PE day is a Monday, please ensure your child comes into school in the correct PE uniform (white T-shirt plain or with the school logo, black shorts or black jogging bottoms, a black jumper and trainers).

    The School day starts at 8:45 please make sure you are at the meeting point by this time, this is to stop unnecessary congregating at the school gates, it allows us to stick to our school timetable and it ensures that all of the children are safely in school. Thank you for understanding this.

    Our topic is “Lost and Found” here is some information about what we will be covering in the next few weeks of school:

    Our Previous Topics are below for you to see what we did!

    In Reception we set out learning based on broad topics which become filled with the children’s ideas for how and what they would like to learn. We choose quality texts to support our topic learning and where possible, incorporate other learning areas so that learning is purposeful and motivating for the children. Our topics for the year are set out as:

    We love to gather the children’s ideas for learning and use them to plan engaging activities to support their progress.


    Please see our Yearly overview for more information about what we will be learning about; Reception 20-21 Overview

    For useful links for games and activities please see links below or the Kidszone section of the website.  

    Please find attached some useful links about starting school. We know it can be a big change to move to ‘big school’ but we want to help make this jump as smooth as possible!
