Timberley Academy


Welcome to Reception!


A big welcome to all our new Reception children and well done for settling so quickly into Timberley!

We hope you all had a fantastic Summer!


Our Reception children have been having a lovely time exploring their new learning environment and getting to know their teachers. We have had so much fun this week and we have lots of exciting things coming up soon so keep checking here to find out more!


We have sent your child home with a reading book this week for them to share with you. We would appreciate it if you could take some time to read regularly with your child and then write a small comment in the reading diary to let us know how they got on. Please encourage the children to talk about the pictures and the characters in the story and to support you with this we will be sending home a book mark with ideas and prompts. Our book changing days are Tuesday and Friday, please encourage your child to put their reading book and reading diary into the book change box on these days as they come into the classroom.


Our PE day is Tuesday so please ensure your child has a PE kit in school and that all of their items are clearly labelled with their name. Children with earrings must either remove them on this day or come to school with plasters covering their earrings for health and safety reasons. Also a polite reminder that it is school policy to wear stud earrings only.


Thank you for your support.
