Welcome to Reception Class

Welcome to the Reception class page for Thorpe Lea Primary School and a huge, warm welcome to all our new Reception class and parents! 


On this page you will find information about: our daily routine, our topic and theme of learning for the term and special events and news.


My name is Miss Nickless and I am the Reception class teacher. 

We are also very lucky to have Miss Pate who is our classroom assistant and Mr Collin (Deputy Head/ SENCO) who is in our classroom on Wednesday afternoons.


        Miss Pate                  



We will have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays so please can you ensure that your child comes to school in their school PE kit and that all uniform is labelled. 

(PE will start from the w/c  19th September 2022)


Snacks and Lunches

We provide fresh fruit and milk/ water during snack time.  Children can bring in packed lunches (no nuts/ chocolate/ fizzy drinks) or they can have school dinners which you can order on a daily, weekly or termly basis. You can order these via the SCOPAY website. Please order these at least 24 hours before.


Library Day

At Thorpe-Lea, we have our very own library and the children get to visit once a week and choose a book for home. Reception's day to visit the library is WEDNESDAY. Please ensure your child's library book is in their back on Wednesday to change. If the book is not returned then your child will miss their library slot that week until the book is returned.  (TBC)


Please check this page on a regular basis for updates.


Below you will find the class timetable. 


I am looking forward to having a great year in Reception with you all! :)


Miss Nickless :)

Our topic for this half term is





This half term in Reception we will be looking at the topic "MARVELLOUS ME". 



Watch out for some key dates and letters via studybugs or school email!


Whilst we have all of this exciting things happening, we still need to remember to continue to do our daily reading and to  write it in our reading diaries and to learn our spellings for our test every Friday.
