Reception - Peter Rabbit 2023 - 2024

Mrs Carr

Welcome to Peter Rabbit’s class page!

My name is Mrs Carr and I am the Reception class teacher. I teach in Reception every morning and on Friday afternoons. On Monday afternoons, Reception children have PE with Coach Joe. Mrs Sears teaches in Reception on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Miss Holden is our class teaching assistant on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and Mrs Sandiford is our teaching assistant on Wednesdays.

In Reception children have daily phonics and maths lessons. Children in Early Years learn best through play. Peter Rabbit class have lots of opportunities to develop their learning through our areas of continuous provision both inside the classroom and in our outdoor area. Throughout the day, there are a mixture of adult led guided activities and child led activities to enhance learning.

In Reception. learning is centred around the following seven areas of learning: Communication and Language (C&L), Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED), Physical Development (PD), Literacy (L), Mathematics (M), Understanding the World (UW) and Expressive Arts and Design (EAD).

During their time in Peter Rabbit class, children will learn about topics such as: All about me, seasons, people who help us, animals, space and life-cycles. 


Homework is sent home on a Friday via email with an activity to consolidate learning in school. Photos of work completed for homework can be uploaded to Tapestry or any paper activities can be sent into school to show in class. 

Please send reading folders to school every day and read as much as possible at home. Reading books will be collected in on Mondays and will stay in school until Wednesdays when new reading books will come home.


I will upload photos to Tapestry throughout the year to build up a collection of photos of different types of learning in school. Photos from home showing WOW moments can also be uploaded to Tapestry to add to the online learning journals.

Milk and Fruit

All infant children are offered a piece of fruit during the day. Alternatively, you can send one healthy snack into school for your child. We encourage healthy eating and therefore unhealthy snacks such as biscuits, chocolate or crisps are not allowed. Families also have the option to purchase milk for your child. Milk is pre-ordered via Parent Pay. 

Water Bottles

Please can your child bring a water bottle to school every day, with their name clearly visible. These will be taken home for cleaning and refilling each day. They can also be refilled at school during the day.


The children can visit the infant library every Monday to choose a book to bring home to share. They need to bring the book back on a Monday, so it can be swapped for a new book.


Our PE day is every Monday. Please send your child to school in their full PE kit on this day.
