Welcome to Reception!

What an exciting time for all of our new children and families as you begin your next learning adventure at Widden Primary School.


We have two classes in reception.  Susanne Quinn and Salina Wathen teach class RQW and Lisa Smith teaches class RS.  The classes are also supported with experienced teaching assistants.  Your child's happiness and learning is our priority and please do feel free to come and speak to us before school if you have any queries, concerns or questions.



Our theme for learning this term is:

'This is me!'

We will be getting to know the children, settling into school routines and continuing learning towards the Foundation stage Early Learning Goals.


Please see the link below for the overview of this terms learning intentions.


On Wednesday 25th September at 3.30 we will be holding a reading meeting.  It is very important that you attend so that you can support your in child learning to read at home.  The meeting will last approximately half an hour.


P.E. is taught on Wednesday and Thursday.  Please make sure your child has a sports kit in school.  This comprises of a t-shirt, shorts or jogging trousers and a pair of trainers or daps.  


The children also spend a lot of time out side.  We do provide waterproof clothing but please provide your child with a pair of wellington boots.


Please do make sure that EVERY item of clothing has your child's name on it so that we can return any lost items to you.
