Welcome to Reception,

I hope you’ve had a lovely summer holiday and managed to see some sunshine. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your children. In Reception this year we have myself – Mrs Kent, Mrs Hopkins, Miss Jennings and Miss Daniel. We are also very lucky on a Wednesday to have Mr Waldron who will be teaching PE.

We have put together a range of ‘Stay and Learn’ sessions to demonstrate how we teach in Reception. The list is attached below.

If you have any other questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to speak to one of the Reception Team.


Mrs Kent

At each of the Stay and Learn sessions you will have the opportunity to:

  • find out about how different areas of the Early Years curriculum are taught at St Helen’s
  • watch a lesson with your child(ren)
  • join your child(ren) in learning activities
  • be given ideas and activities to support your child(ren)’s learning and development at home
  • ask questions (including those ‘little questions’ that you are too afraid to ask!)
Friday 21st  September



The focus will be the online learning journey we use at St Helen’s.
