Welcome to the Foundation Stage!

Welcome to Reception's class page. We are happy to welcome all our new children and parents to Middlewich Primary School. Our school day starts at 8.50am but our doors will be open from 8.40am for you to drop off your child. Due to current circumstances we are unable to allow parents into the school building. If you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to phone or visit the office and if needed one of the teachers will contact you at a convenient time.  

Within the classroom we have fun, stimulating activities and areas for the children to explore. There will always be a range of activities to promote creativity, language development, social skills and technological skills within each classroom and the learning continues in our outdoor areas too. During each week all children will take part in adult led activities related to our current topic and with a focus on numeracy and literacy skills. The children will also move their learning forward with their own independent activities that they will access around the environment. 

During the school day we have a number of new learning opportunities as well as a chance to practise things that we have already been working on. Part of the day that we all love is our story time. We love to read and share a range of stories with the children, from classic stories to information texts. 

Your children will take part in PE lessons on Tuesday and Thursday each week. At the moment the children will not be getting changed for PE so please ensure your child is wearing trainers on these days. Children in Reception do not need to bring their own pencil case or water bottle as drinks and a healthy snack will be provided.

Reading books will be sent home with your child from the week beginning Monday 14th September. Your child's reading folder must then be returned to school every Thursday and new books will be sent home the following Monday. This is to ensure we are following the government guidelines regarding the sharing of resources. A more detailed letter about reading books will be sent home.
