Welcome to Reception.


We have two classes in our year group. The Woodpecker's teacher is Mrs Poller and the Robin's teacher is Miss Brind. The year group teaching assistant is Mrs Walker and the Inclusion teaching assistants are Miss Brown, Mrs Humphries and Mrs Kaur.


Book bags and reading

Each child should have a Birches Green book bag. They need to bring this to school everyday please. This is so that the children can change their reading book every day. Please make a note of the books your child has read in the yellow reading diary. The diary is collected in each Wednesday and at the end of the half term we see who has been reading lots at home and the top 3 children receive a certificate and a Birches Green pound.



Homework is given out on a Friday and handed in by Wednesday at the latest please. Homework is to help children consolidate the learning for that week. Please ensure that the children do the homework themselves with a little support from parents.


High frequency words

Your child will be sent home with words to learn. We will test you child every two weeks to see what new words they know, and when they have learnt the first set of words we will send new words home. Please can you help your child to learn these words as they will receive a certificate and move up the rockets in class.
