'Be supported, feel supported – make a difference'


A very warm welcome to the Reception class page and to the Summer Term.

Please also keep updated on Class Dojo . This is an important app to have as we also use it to communicate any key messages about school life and update you on any events coming up. This can be an app downloaded on phones and tablets. Please find below a short video tutorial about how to log in. 

How to log into Class Dojo



Our PE day is a Monday and children are to come into school wearing their kits. PE kit is blue/black shorts or jogging bottoms, plain white t-shirt or the blue Over Hall logo t-shirt, school jumper and trainers - ideally with velcro rather than laces.

This term we will be having weekly bikes and scooters sessions. This will be on a Thursday.


Before and After School Club

Breakfast club drop off will be at the hall door further on from the main school entrance. · Staff will be on site and available for Breakfast club from 8am – places must be booked in advance · There is some availability of childcare from 7:30 but this needs to be agreed at least 48hours in advance.  Please message Mrs Barlow for further information and look out for messages from her on Class Dojo.


Learning in Reception

Do keep updated with the website and our class page for key information. Please have a look at the Knowledge Organiser below to see what learning we will be up to in our first half term. Also remember to keep updated on Tapestry where Miss Smith, Mrs York and I will be posting regularly. This is an opportunity to see what your child/children are up to in school. We also post a weekly blog each week on Class Dojo.

Our Terrific 10

Each half term we pick a set of Terrific 10 books that link to our topic and help us to explore similar themes. We re-read this and these become part of our provision.
