Welcome to Elm and Birch Classes!

This is an incredibly important year, as your child begins their primary school journey. Here you will find curriculum newsletters giving you information the topics we are studying in class, as well as additional materials that you can support you in encouraging your child's learning at home. 

Welcome to The Pines; we are so pleased to have you with us. 


Meet the teacher

Do come and visit us, to see your child's learning, during our Learning Showcases. You can find the dates for these on our school calendar.

At the start of the year, we hold 'Welcome Meetings', for you to hear about the expectations of Reception and how we can all best support your child. If you are new to us, were unable to make the meeting, or which to access this information again, then please click on the link below.

Welcome Meeting Presentation

We hold parents evenings twice a year. We believe this are extremely important and strongly encourage you to attend these. We will discuss your child's progress, next steps and ways they can be supported further at home.
