Welcome to Reception!

Meet your new teacher!

Watch the video created by your new Year 1 teacher!  You will have been told who your new teacher is when you came to collect your report last week.  (If you missed this, your new teacher will be emailed to your parents on Monday!)

You will have the opportunity to respond to your teacher and other tasks in this week's Home Learning timetable in the 'Learning that SHOULD take place' section below!
