Welcome to RC and RS




Dear families of children due to join Reception this September,


Please refer to your welcome letter for your child's class and taster session day for week commencing Monday 7th September 2020.


The session will give children an opportunity to meet their peers and Teacher whilst being introduced to what to expect in Reception.  You are welcome to stay with your child until the end of the school day (3.30pm).


Please arrive in the Reception playground for your booked session by 8.50am.  The entrance is through the main gate via Oulton Road. 


Children may bring in bottled water with their name clearly written on it but nothing else is required.  A free school lunch will be provided for you and your child. However, you may bring a packed lunch if you prefer.


All children will then start Reception the following week: Monday 14th September 2020.

Please have a read of our Reception booklet with information on how you can help them for this.


If you require further information you can contact the school office on 020 8802 6670 or email

Current favourite activities for you to try at home:


1. Make a recycled toy

Making a toy together is a fun way to be creative but also a great way to develop a child’s conversation skills.


2. Make your own jigsaw

Have a go at making your own puzzle by cutting up an old cereal box. Chat together about how the different pieces fit together.


3. Sound effects story time

Children love it when you add sound effects during story time – especially animal and monster noises!


4. Make paper planes together

Making paper planes can help children’s turn taking and communication skills. See who’s planes can fly the furthest.


5. Have a dance party!

Why not start each day with a dance together?
