General information:

The adults who work in Reception

Mrs. Carlisle-class teacher (all day)

Mrs. Sindha- Teaching assistant (all day)

Mrs. Scarborough- Teaching assistant   (Monday all day, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings)

Book Bags:

Please bring your book bag to school every day so children can be heard reading and letters from school can be sent home.


Please ensure you hear your child read every day for 5 minutes and write a brief comment in the reading diary. This is very important as children who regularly practise at home make much better progress. A big thank you to all the parents who support their child in this way; keep up the good work!


Reading Diary

Please ensure your child brings their reading diary in their book bag every day. We use this to record and monitor your child’s reading development at school and at home. We also use this to communicate with you about your child. We encourage parents to use this to communicate with us also.


PE day is Friday. Please come dressed in PE kit and bring your uniform to get dressed into after the lesson.  Please ensure all kit is labelled! 


If you need to talk to any of the staff from Reception please contact the office to make an appointment. Parents are welcome to stay in Reception class until 9:10 am when Reception staff will be available to talk about your child’s learning or any other issues. You can also email me

Many thanks,

Mrs. Carlisle

Reception Class Teacher
