Welcome to Reception 

Welcome to RSR’s and REN’s blog, here you will be able to read about and see all the exciting things that the classes have been up to over the year. We hope you enjoy looking through all the children’s hard work and can see how much fun they are having.

For those of you that will be new to our school this year here is a little booklet and virtual tour of our classrooms so you can see what your new classroom will be like.

Meet the Teachers

Meet our Reception Team, Miss Rose (Teacher), Miss Nesbitt (Teacher), Mrs Brown (Teacher, part time), Mrs Mannion (Higher Level Teaching Assistant) Mrs Wise (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Peoples (Teaching Assistant). Any of our reception team will be happy to talk to you about your child’s need and interests.


Please ensure all of your child’s uniform and PE kit has their name inside. If anything goes missing it can be very difficult to tell who’s is who if it does not have a name inside.

We love learning outside as well even when it is a little wet! Please bring to school a pair of wellies that are labelled with your child’s name and you are happy to leave on the premises.

Accidents do happen from time to time but we ask if any items are borrowed from the school can they please be returned so the children can keep clean and dry.


PE is a compulsory subject and children are expected to have the correct kit which is fully labelled. Receptions PE day is a Monday morning with our coaches.

Homework and Reading books

Homework is given out on a Friday. This must be completed and returned to school by the following Monday.

It is important that your child brings their book bag into school every day to make sure that any letters and creative work can be taken home.

Reading is a fundamental aspect of learning, we encourage you to read daily with your child at home. Please ensure that your child’s home reader and reading record are inside their book bags everyday. This allows the children the oppertunity to change their book within the school day when it is an appropriate time for them to do so. When your child reads 3 out of 7 nights they will get a stamp on their reading card. When they have collected 10 stamps they can choose a prize. Every time your child changes their book their superhero will move one place on our space chart aiming to reach the rocket.

Please see our Reading Page for more information on how to help your child become a confident reader.

Tapestry Online Learning Journal

Here at Wellesbourne we have subscribed to a fantastic online learning journal that gives you the opportunity to see what adventures your children have been up to during the school day from a computer or smart device.
By logging on with a secure username and password you will be able to view all of your child’s observations, photographs and some video clips from their time in reception. You may also contribute by commenting on your child’s learning and sharing your own observations and amazing moments with us so that we can get to know your child even better.

Useful Information

Miss Rose is our EYFS Leader. The curriculum follows the guidelines for EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage). Topics in the Reception are child initiated and very flexible. They are adapted each year to match the interests and abilities of the children. While some favourite topics are repeated each year, e.g. Spring, these are adapted so that the children get the skills and knowledge that they need from this

– What is the Early Years Foundation Stage? Further information about the EYFS and how your child learns in those vitally important first years, can be found in the following documents:
