St Peter's Catholic Primary School

Loving and Learning together, with Jesus.




Welcome to Reception



A huge well done to all the children for making it through their first week at school and thank you to all those parents who attended our parent workshop on Thursday; we hope that you found it valuable. We have updated the resources section below to include everything we spoke about at the meeting.


The children have been super busy, learning lots of rules and routines and we have even managed to introduce two new sounds 's' and 'a'.  Please be on the look out for things beginning with these sounds over the weekend. In their school bag today, you will find their reading packets. Please ensure that they are brought into school daily. Along with their book, you will find a name card that you can use with your child to practise writing their names correctly.


On Monday we will be encouraging you to leave your child at the blue gate to walk into the classroom independently. Our reception assistants will be on hand to support any of our reluctant children. At the end of the day (3.05) we will walk the children up the path to meet you. (RT on the right hand path. RJ the left hand path.) For safety reasons, can we please ask that once your child has been handed into your care that you keep them with you and do not allow them onto the grassed area.
