Welcome to Reception

A very warm welcome to you all for your child’s first year at St John’s C of E Primary!

In Reception there are two classes
  • RWT - Miss White is the class teacher Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and Mrs Thomas who is the class teacher each Tuesday. They are supported by Mrs Norton, our fabulous teaching assistant, who is in class each day.


  • RLN - Mrs Noon is the class teacher, who is supported daily by the wonderful Mrs Tandy.


The first year of school is always an exciting part of your child’s learning journey. Here in Reception, we work hard to develop all of the key skills needed for your child to become a successful learner; personal skills such as sharing and turn-taking, speaking and listening skills, self-confidence and self-help skills, independence and a love of learning!

Children will have the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways: both short formal sessions and through play experiences indoors and outdoors. There are many exciting and fun things to look out for so please keep an eye out for the Curriculum maps which will give you more information for each of the topics that we will cover and ideas to help your child’s learning at home. We strongly encourage parents and carers to read regularly with their children at home.

Communication is key so please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Early Years Team should you have and comments, queries or concerns. We look forward to working with all of you!
