Miss Carter

Welcome to Reception's page!

"The child grew and became strong in body, mind and spirit."

Thankyou for choosing St Peter's Primary School for the start of your child's school education.  We are sure that your child will thrive in our care.

During the year we want to get to know your child as much as we can..  So, we shall be talking a lot about your child's early experiences.  With our help your child will learn to play with other children and to resolve conflicts.   We will support your child in learning letter sounds, in order to read and write.  We also learn all about numbers up to 20, a variety of shapes and how to measure the passage of time.  We enjoy singing a lot!  We make sure that the learning environments are safe and stimulating both inside and out.  

Children will have access to fruit and milk each day, although you are more than welcome to send in a small, healthy snack with your child. Please remember that this cannot contain nuts or peanuts. 

P.E. will be on a Wednesday and children should come dressed in their PE kits on this day. 

Homework will be sent out each half term and your child can choose which options they would like to complete. Homework can be documented in the Home Learning books or on Tapestry.

At present we are unable to send home reading books. You can find an incredible amount of books for your child's reading stage on Oxford Owls website and we have also assigned all children a Reading Eggs account. You can use this as often as you like and will also have work assigned on there. 


Welcome to half term 4! We hope that you had a relaxing half term and enjoyed quality time with your families. This half term we have a new big question: 

Can you tell me a story?

We will be reading lots of fairy tales as well as enjoying some of the children's favourite stories, too. We will compare stories that we hear at present to those that our parents and grandparents heard when they were younger. We would love it if you, or a grandparent, could record yourself reading one of your childhood favourites and upload it onto Tapestry so that we can share even more stories with the children!

In maths, we will continue to follow White Rose as we learn about building 9 and 10.  


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to us.

Mrs Bebbington & Miss Brown
