Reception 2 (R2)




Hello and welcome to R2's class web page


We are......
Mrs Ellis - Class Teacher 

Mrs Abram - Class Teaching Assistant
and of course, our class of 26 children.


Also in Reception and shared between R1 and R2 is Mrs Jones - TA


Changes to the School Day

At the start of the school day both R1 and R2 will enter through the Nursery gate where you will be greeted by your class teachers at 9am. We are trying our best to adhere to Covid regulations so at present, no parents are to enter the school grounds. 

 The gate will be locked at 9.05am. If you arrive after this time then you will need to go to the school office to sign your child in.


At 3pm all the Reception children will be walked to the Nursery area at the front of the school.  Please be patient, it is not ideal but we are trying our best. We only let one child leave at a time.The safety of your child is paramount. As you can imagine it will take staff a few weeks to become familiar with parents, grandparents and family friends.  If someone other than a parent is collecting your child at home time, we ask that you please inform the member of staff at the gate in the morning. 



* All school uniform MUST be named

* Children can bring a NAMED sports top water bottle in to school containing WATER ONLY

* Book bags should be brought into school everyday.


Physical Education

For the time being, all children throughout the school are to come to school wearing their outdoor PE kit on their PE day only.  Reception children would not normally need an outdoor kit however until the guidelines change we would ask that your child wears the following;


White PE shirt

School jumper or cardigan

Black, navy or grey jogging bottoms



R1 will have PE on Monday

R2 will have PE on Friday


We are very lucky to have a sports coach, Mr. Murphy, who teaches PE to all the children in the school at some point throughout the school year. 



Our class topic this term is 'All About Me'. 

We will be looking at a selection of books on this theme in our Literacy sessions. 

Regular newsletters will keep you informed of what we shall be covering in our curriculum.


If you have any concerns at all regarding your child, please come and see us at the end of the school day where hopefully any worries/concerns can be addressed. 

We are all looking forward to meeting you soon!!

Homework books were sent home yesterday (17.9.2020).  Please feel free to complete as many activities as you can or want to.  You will receive a text message in December with a date to return the book to school.  Your child will then have the opportunity to share their work with their teachers and friends.  We celebrate all achievements with a certificate and sticker.
