Welcome to Reception!
Welcome to Foundation Stage Two and our school family at St Theresa's Primary School.   If you have any questions throughout the year, worries or information you think I need to know please feel able to see me at the end of the school day.  An appointment is not always necessary.  Mrs Newboult/ Mrs Andrews and I are really looking forward to helping you teach your child and welcome you again to the school family at St Theresa’s Primary School.


Your child will grow and develop a lot throughout the year. Click the link below:

10 things you can do before you leave EYFS



Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be returned to school on a Tuesday. Please help your child to complete their homework, thank you



We regularly read with the children twice a week in Guided Reading sessions as well as daily as a class. There is a sheet in your child’s reading folder of helpful hints and how to get the best from your child when you are reading at home.  It is very important that you read it and read with your child everyday after school or later in the evening for 10 minutes.  All our reading books come in a set and if a child loses one, a payment of £20 will be needed to replace a new set we cannot purchase individual books. It is a good idea to have a place in your home where the reading book is kept, when it is not being read.  Please remember to bring your child's reading folder in every day so we can change books and to sign or comment when your child has read with you.



All the children will require a pair of blue shorts and a red tshirt. Our PE day is a Monday. However this regularly changes! To ensure that all children have their P.E kits for P.E they can leave their bags in the cloakroom on their pegs until half term when we will send it home to be washed.


Water bottles

The children need to have access to water all day. If your child prefers to have a water bottle to drink from they can be purchased from the office.  It is parent’s responsibility to collect water bottles from the classroom/outside and take them home to be washed daily.



The children in reception have a snack mid-morning which will be a variety of fruit and a drink of milk/ water.  As the school receive this free their is no charge for snack this academic year. 


Forest Skills

Every Thursday afternoon we go into 'The Dell' to extend our learning and explore the outdoors! Please ensure that wellies or trainers are kept at school and a change of trousers. Thank you. 


Family Mornings/Family Afternoons

We will invite you into school throughout the year to our family mornings/afternoons and learning journal meetings to share in your child's learning. Thank you for your continued support.


Here are a few pictures of the activites we have been doing in class.
