What you need in Reception

Book Bag and Folder


Please place your child's completed homework, reading record and reading book / material in their clear folder. You may also wish to put in any party invitations or notes. 


Every morning your child is reminded to independently take out their folder from their book bag and place into the grey box. The folders within the grey box are checked daily. 


Please try to empty your child's folder as often as possible and keep any belongings that are not needed for school at home. 

Homework and Reading 


Homework will be set every Friday and needs to be returned the following Friday. Once your child's homework is completed please place it into the clear folder that your child has been provided with.


After the October half term your child will received some form of reading material for the week. Please try to encourage your child to read each day and sign or write within their reading record. 

Library Book

Reception's library day is Thursday. 

Every Thursday afternoon, the children will go to the school's library and will independently choose a library book.

Unfortunately, if your child does not return their library book on a Thursday they will be unable to choose a new one.


If you are unsure which library book your child has, look  for the barcode on the back of the book or your child's teacher can find out the name of the book. 

If your child's library book has been lost or damaged then we will ask for £5 so we can replace the book.

P.E. Kit

P.E kit includes navy shorts, white polo and black pumps. 

P.E. is taught every Friday and the children's P.E. kits will be sent home to be washed at the end of each half term. 

Please ensure every single piece of your child's P.E. kit and school uniform is labelled.
