Reception 2018 - 2019

Mrs Heskett

Welcome to Oakdene's Reception Class page.

We wish a warm welcome to all our Reception parents, especially any 'new to school' parents. 

The Reception children this year are friendly, enthusiastic and very keen to learn.

Staff your child will meet this Year are:

Mrs Heskett (Class Teacher)

Mrs Hayes (Learning Assistant full time)

Mrs Nelson (Learning Assistant part time time)

Miss Clarke (Learning Assistant part time time)

Mrs Green (HLTA for PPA cover)

A few of Reception’s routines:

Reading books need to be in school EACH day and will be changed each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please sign the book when you have read with your child and state if their book needs changing.

Home/school books are given out on a Wednesday and are collected in on a Monday. Please try and write a small comment if possible or initial that you have seen it.

PE kits need to be left in school each day and our PE days are on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please could you make sure all PE items are labelled. We will send their kits home for washing at the end of this half term.

Reception’s Topic Focus:

This half term we will be learning about


We will be looking at our bodies, what we can do and how we have changed from babies to now as well as lots more. We will be asking for baby photos at some point this half term so get looking on your phone or i-pad for images to send.

Helping in School

We welcome ANY helpers in school. You can hear readers, do activities or just admin jobs. If there are any mums, dads, grandparents etc. that want to fill a few hours please let us know.

Thank You,

Mrs Heskett and the Reception Staff
