We are delighted to welcome you and your child to our Reception classes here at Whitley Abbey Primary School. We aim to provide a caring and safe environment, which will help your child settle happily into school life. We are looking forward to working in partnership with you to support your child’s learning.

In Reception we have two classes: Reception Willow and Reception Chestnut. Throughout the year we plan a variety of themes to engage the children’s learning.  

Autumn Term:

Do you want to be friends?

Why do squirrels hide their nuts?

Spring Term:

Are we there yet?

Do cows drink milk?

Summer Term 1:

Are carrots orange?

Why do ladybirds have spots?

Reception will be having PE on Tuesday morning so please ensure they come to school in their PE kit, wearing trainers and have a spare pair of shoes in a bag to change into if they get muddy.
