Welcome to Our Reception Class Pages
In Reception we are always busy and have lots of fun and adventures as we learn lots of new things, work hard and play. We have a safe and secure environment and learn in a structured and stimulating setting using lots of fun and exciting resources. Our highly experienced and qualified teachers and teaching assistants are:
Mrs Hartland (Monday to Wednesday)
Mrs Evans (Thursday and Friday)
Ms Birkett (Monday to Friday)
Feel free to come and speak to any of us if you have any questions and concerns. Alternatively you can put a note in your child's reading record for us to read and we will respond to it as soon as possible.
Reception year at Winkfield St Mary's is an important foundation to their learning and we have created a curriculum which will prepare children to be ready for Year 1 learning. You can access a document which explains this here.
On this page you will find key diary dates and details of our home learning for the Autumn Term 2019. Reading books will be changed 3 times a week on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Never force your child to read but aim to read with them as often as possible. Please remember to sign the reading record so we know they have read their book.

At the beginning of the Autumn term, we do not attend any whole school assemblies, but throughout the year we gradually build up the number of assemblies we attend. PE is on a Tuesday afternoon and will continue to be a mixture of inside and outside sessions (when weather allows). Please name all PE clothing! We visit the Library on a Thursday afternoon.

We also regularly send home the phonic sounds that we have been teaching and the Jolly Phonic songs that accompany them for you to re-enforce at home.
