Stegosaurus - Reception

Our Classroom

What to expect when

Welcome to Stegosaurus!











Our Class Quote is:

I never say “I can’t”, I always say “I will try”



In our class there are 30 Reception children. Our teachers are Mrs Fox and Mrs Chambers. (Mrs Fox teaches on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Chambers teaches on Thursday and Friday) Our teaching assistant is Miss Eastham who is in our class every day. Miss Riley and Mrs Bowen also sometimes help us with our learning.


Things children need in school:


P.E. kit

Water bottles (please ensure these are filled with fresh water daily)

Book bags – reading books must be brought into school every day

Please ensure your child has suitable clothing for the weather/time of year e.g. raincoat, sunhat, hat and gloves.

Please make sure everything your child has in school is clearly labelled.


Toast is available at morning break each day and costs 20p. If you would like your child to have toast then you will need to send them in with 20p in a labelled envelope, wallet or purse each day. Children must be responsible for their own money.


Please drop off and collect your child from the outside reception door underneath the canopy. A member of staff will always be there to greet your child and help them if needed. To encourage independence we ask that you allow them to come into the classroom by themselves.
