Welcome to Reception

In September you're going to be joining our Reception class. It's called Inventors. Do you know what an Inventor is? It's someone who has lots of ideas and makes things. While you're in Inventors class we hope that you will become a great Inventor.
To the side of this writing you will see pictures of 4 people. These are the people who will be helping you to learn when you are in the Inventors class.

Beth will be your teacher and Ruhela, Fateha and Kellie will be your teaching assistants. You might also have Andy and Bayleigh in your class some of the time! There are a lot of adults who can help you with your learning if you get stuck or are unsure of anything.

There are some other people who you will get to know in school too. You can find their pictures if you click on the button below. See if you can find me - I'm Miss Allan and I'm the Headteacher.

How do you feel about going into the Inventors Class?

Are you excited about going into a new class and having some lovely new teachers? Do you feel something else?

I have made you a countdown calendar (you can see a picture of it to the left of this writing). On the calendar there are lots of ideas for you to do each day to help you get ready to come to school. If you keep having a go at these things then I'm sure you'll settle into your new class really well. You can print out the document or you can pop into school to pick one up.

I know it's important for you to feel happy about coming to school and to help you with that, your teachers want to get to know you a little bit before you start. We've put together a booklet that you can download or come into school to collect. You can fill in the booklet and bring it to us on the 15th July, or you can take your time with it and bring it over the summer and bring it to us when you come on​ 3rd  September. It will help us get to know you much quicker. 

Videos of your teachers

Your teachers are really sorry that they couldn't meet you before now. To make up for it they have filmed some videos for you to watch so that you can get to know them. Do you know the story and the songs they have recorded? (Keep an eye here as more videos will be available by the end of July!)

If there is anything that you want to know about starting in the Reception class, drop us an email.  There is also a lot of information on our website and we use our Twitter feed too so you might want to follow us @aldgateschool
