Welcome to Reception! 

The Reception children have had a great first week in school and we are very proud of how well they are doing. They have all settled in very well and are making lots of new friends. Now that the children are familiar with the morning routine we ask that parents say their goodbyes outside and the children come into school on their own.

Monday 10th September sees the start of the children’s full days in school. The children are to be collected from the classroom door at 3.15pm each day.

Please ensure that every day your child brings:

  • A waterproof coat
  • A water bottle (no juice please)
  • Book bag

Also to keep in school:

  • PE kit (PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday alternate weeks)
  • A change of clothes
  • Wellies

All Reception children are entitled to a free school lunch every day and there will be two lunch options available. If your child does not like either option they can always order a jacket potato or sandwich.

Please use our website to find out what we will be learning throughout this year, keep up-to-date with upcoming events; and find useful documentation linked to our curriculum using the Files to Download.

Please follow us on twitter @uptonpriorynews for updates.

Many thanks,

The Reception Team
