Welcome to the Reception Page of the Alban Wood Website. 

Dear Parents / Carers

Welcome to the Reception Page of the Alban Wood Website, we are very excited to be part of your child’s learning journey.

We use Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and plan our days around the seven areas of learning. Our time in school is packed full of different opportunities and we encourage children to investigate, explore and be independent. Our Topic this half term (September to October half term) is ‘All about me’.

Within the Reception Class learning takes place both indoors and outdoors – so please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing – At this time of year sun hats but also waterproof coats!

Please keep updating Tapestry with homework and any experiences your child has at home so that they can share these with their friends.

If you have any queries or concerns please speak to a member of the class team, you can do this at drop off or collection or if it is a matter which needs a longer conversation please speak to the office and we will arrange a convenient time, alternatively use the contact form on the right of the class page and we will get back to you.

Things to remember

Everything needs to be named!

PE is on a Wednesday, but children need a PE kit in school every day

Named water bottles should be in school every day

Please provide your child with a spare set of clothes in their bag

Thank you!

Mrs Harrop, Mrs Sayell, Miss Sturman-Smith, Miss Connor
