Reception parents - please use Seesaw to share your children's learning and events

The following information should support parents with how the class operates. 

If your child has to self isolate please see the Self-isolation timetable below for ideas of how to structure the learning and support your child at home.

Timetable information

Mrs. Hardcastle is the teacher in St Andrews class. St Andrews class is made up of 20 reception children and 7 year 1’s.

Mrs. Gray will support the class every morning and Mrs. Huxtable in the afternoons. Mrs Huxtable is also with the children every lunchtime.

On Thursday’s I have my Planning, Preparation and Assessment time (PPA) During this time the children will have Mrs. Griffin for PE and Computing. On this day I will be in school in the morning in Term 3 and the afternoon in Term 4.

In term 3 children will also have PE on a Friday afternoon. 

Please make sure your child comes into school wearing their PE kit on a Thursday and Friday in term 3.

In term 4 children will also have PE on a Tuesday afternoon.

Please make sure your child comes into school wearing their PE kit on a Tuesday and Thursday in term 4

Our PE kit: consists of a white PE sports t-shirt, red or black shorts or trousers with sensible trainers. Please ensure everything is named.

Please don’t let your child bring in anything from home except the things that are needed. We need to try to limit the movement of things between home and school.

Reading and Spelling

Year 1

The children will change their reading books on a Monday.  When you have shared the book with your child please sign or write a message to let us know it is finished with. We may send two books home each time but it will help to develop fluency when children re-read books a few times.


It is important that each child remembers their reading folder every day as they will have opportunities for quiet reading during school time. Your child will be heard to read in a guided reading session two or three times a week, this will not be recorded in their yellow reading record book. Please make sure the children have a book bag not a back pack.

Phonics and spelling will be taught in year group’s everyday which will support their reading, spelling and grammar development.

Year 1 Spellings will be sent home termly from week three of this term, please practice reading and spelling these words with your child. There will not be a formal test just several activities to support these words throughout the week. Spelling is really important the more you can support this at home really helps your child.

Topic work

The curriculum will be studied through topics, which both infant classes will be following together. Term 3 and 4 topic is, ‘Fantastic Features of our World’ please see the attached topic web for more information. 


Please send your child with a named water bottle everyday as it’s important children have regular drinks.

Our partnership with you

If there are ever any problems, questions or worries, however small they may seem, please feel free to email the school office to make an appointment to see one of us or try to catch us around at the end of the day.

It is important to us that your children feel safe and secure at school and dealing with any worries straight away will help to create a productive and creative environment, where your child feels able to take risks in their learning. We know how important it can be to the children and sorting the little problems out quickly, makes it less likely that they will develop into ‘big’ ones later on.
