Welcome to Reception

Hello and welcome! Over the last few weeks we have been working very hard to create a safe, fun and exciting environment both indoors and outdoors, to ensure that you are able to smile, laugh, explore, learn and achieve during your Reception year at Thorp.

Our Reception team

Mrs Allen – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday

Miss Marland –  Tuesday, Thursday and Friday

Mrs Farthing –  Teaching Assistant

Ms Beaty – Teaching Assistant and Midday support

Mrs Wilkinson – Midday support

Every day we will enjoy working and playing together, making new friends and having fun. Sometimes we will all learn together, sometimes it will be in small groups with an adult, and of course there will be independent learning time to play and explore, practise skills and tackle lots of challenges.

Our scheduled day for PE is Friday and for the first half term at least, the children will need to come to school on that day of the week wearing their outdoor PE kit. This consists of a plain colour tracksuit or alternatively plain colour jogging bottoms and jacket/jumper, pale blue or white t-shirt, and trainers. Full details can be found on the Uniform section of the school website.

We can’t wait to get back to school and the opportunity to get to know all of our Reception children and their families.

Stay safe and have fun!


Mrs Allen

Class Teacher
