How we Learn in Reception
At Blackhall Primary School, we believe that children learn best through play. Play is essential for a child’s development as we feel it enables them to build their confidence as they learn to explore, relate to others and set their own goals and solve problems. We offer a rich and varied Curriculum, in a safe but inviting environment, where children can lead their own play but also take part in play that is guided by adults. We understand that children develop at their own pace but with encouragement and positive interactions from adults, we hope children will achieve and reach their full potential with us.

All doors on the main school yard will be opened at 8:50am by a member of staff. Children can come into school anytime between 8:50am and 9am and walk straight into school where their teacher will be waiting for them in the classroom. Reception should use door 1 on the main school yard.
Children can be collected from Door 1 on the main school yard at 3:00 p.m.
Once the children have learnt all set 1 sounds from their Read, Write, Inc programme and are starting to blend, children will receive their first reading book. We encourage our children to read regularly at home and these books will be changed weekly.
Once the children are settled homework will be sent every Friday and should be returned every Wednesday.
Children are provided with a snack everyday. Snack money is £1 per week and should be paid on Monday in a bag or envelope with your child’s name on. Our snack timetable aims to not only support children’s diet requirements but also supports oral health/healthy teeth. This includes; toast, cheese & crackers, vegetable sticks & dip and breadsticks and raisins. Fruit, milk and water is available daily for our children.
