Reception Weekly Timetable

The timings in this timetable are subject to change dependent on the learning in the day.

Term 6


In Reception we track children's development through observations. Tapestry allows us to digitally carry out observations and upload them to a specific child's learning diary. Each child has their own personal 'Online Learning Diary'. Parents/Carers are then able to access their child's learning journal by creating an account using an email address. Parents/Carers then receive notifications when an observation has been uploaded. It also has the ability for Parent/Carers to 'Like', 'Comment' and add their own learning observations of their child from home- bridging the gap between home and school learning. It is an effective and instant way of communicating school and home learning via Teachers and Parents/Carers.

Contacting the teachers

We try to be available for conversations at the end of the day. However, if this is not available please email us! We will respond as soon as possible or in person.

  • Telephone 0117 377 24 24 and make an appointment for the class teacher to call you back.
