Squirrel - Reception

Welcome to Squirrel Class


Reception is a fantastically exciting year when we welcome you to your learning journey at RAF Benson Community Primary School. We have some amazing things planned for you, so watch this space.


Your teacher this year is Mrs White who will be supported by Mrs Richards (Teaching Assistant). Mrs Wales will be taking you for your PE lessons on Friday afternoons.


Important Notices 


Pick up routine 

Pick up will be at 3:10 pm from the Squirrel Classroom door. Lynx Class Reception children will be picked up from the Lynx classroom door. 


School Dinner 

Please remember to order your choices for the meals using the new online system the day before. If you are still unable to access the site, please visit the school office to let them know you are having problems.  


Packed Lunch 

If you are bringing in a packed lunch, please remember to pack a delicious healthy selection of foods and please be aware that we are a Nut Free school. No chocolate spread or peanut butter!



Please remember to bring in a named water bottle. We will have a selection of delicious snacks for you to eat.


PE Kit 

The children had a fantastic first PE lesson and we were impressed with how well they were all able to get changed independently. Please can you check that all your child's kit is clearly labelled, and show them where they should look to identify their items. Please can you make sure their shoes and bags are also clearly marked. 





Hopefully you have all be using your sound envelopes to practice the new sounds. If you know all the sounds in your envelope now, try learning the names of the sound i.e. sound a - a as in apple ; name A - A as in the alphabet song. You can also join them together to make some words to read. Do not forget to practice writing these sounds too. We are sending home craft activities we have done with the letter to help remind us of how to write the letter e.g. Slither down the snake -'S'.


Boots and coats 

As the weather starts to become a little cooler with the inevitable rain,  please remember to bring in a pair of named waterproof boots and a named waterproof coat. We go outside everyday no matter the weather! We are happy to keep them at school so you don't have to remember them everyday. 


If your parents have any questions we are always happy to talk to them before or after school. 


 We are very excited about the adventures we will have this year 


we hope you'll have loads of fun along the way too !
