Timberley Academy


Welcome to Reception


We would like to say a big hello and welcome to Reception! We are really looking forward to welcoming you all on Wednesday 8th September.


We have lots of exciting things planned and can't wait to start our Timberley journey together.


This half term our project is called ‘All About Me’. We will be learning all about ourselves and our families and things that we like to do. We will be doing lots of activities to encourage new friendships and building relationships to start us on our Timberley journey.

It would be lovely if you could send in a copy of a photograph of you and your family so that we can share them with each other. This can also be done electronically via


We will send a reading book and a reading diary home with your child for you to share and enjoy together. Please ensure that you have signed and dated the diary whenever you have heard your child read. There is a space for you to write a comment if you wish to. Please make sure you return your book on a Monday and we will send a new book home on a Thursday (unfortunately we will not be able to send a new book home if you haven’t returned it).


Our PE day is a Thursday. Please send your child to school in their PE kit. Please ensure that they wear a white round neck t-shirt, black shorts and trainers. They will also need black/navy jogging bottoms and a black/navy warm top for PE during the colder weather. Please do not send your child in any other sports clothes, including football tops. 


Water bottles will need to be brought to school each day filled with water (no fizzy or energy drinks). Fruit is provided for the children during snack time each day so the children will not need to bring in their own snack, however, if you would like to send in a piece of fruit for your child each day please feel free to do so. Please ensure all uniform, coats and water bottles are clearly named.

Just a reminder that children will need to be in school before 9.00 and collected at 3.25.


We can't wait to see you!
