Welcome to the Pallister Park Reception Page

In Reception we have lots of fun, make new friends and are always busy learning both inside and outside the classroom! Our team around the child work closely together to ensure we set good foundations for entering Year 1 and beyond. We provide a highly creative and stimulating environment with challenging learning opportunities through play and adult led teaching. There are 17 Early Learning Goals in Reception and 7 areas of learning. These areas of learning are exactly the same as those in a Nursery setting so we should be viewed as the final stage in your child’s early learning journey. When your child finishes Reception in July you will be given a report which tells you whether or not your child has met the Early Learning Goal (ELG) in each aspect.

Home School Partnership

Strong partnerships between school and home are very important to your child’s learning. Within school we have two family support workers, Mrs Felgate and Mrs McMahon. They are available to discuss any family/child concerns you may have. We also have effective partnerships with the school nursing team, speech and language therapists and other external providers. Although you see your child’s teacher daily please do not hesitate to make an appointment at the main office if you have any concerns. If you would like to share any of your child’s achievements from home please request a proud cloud form so we can celebrate with them in school too.

News: 8th May – Visit from Animal story

Following the success of our last reading challenge, our children will take part in another one beginning on FRIDAY 17TH MAY. Children should read FOR FIVE NIGHTS and have their planner signed by whoever they have read too.

The competition will end on Friday 24th May where winners will be celebrated.



  • Reading books – ask your child to tell you a story using the illustrations in the book. They should sound out the letters and blend them together to read the words.
  • Sound recognition cards – children can use the letter cards to identify the name and sound of each letter. They can then use the letters to build up words.
  • High frequency word cards – children should use their sound knowledge to sound out and blend words. They will also be given ‘tricky’ star words which cannot be sounded out.
  • Number cards – children are given numbers 0-20. They are expected to recognise and order numbers. They should be able to count objects to a given number and identify one more and one less of a given number.
  • Name writing – please help your child to practice writing their name using the letter formation sheets provided. If another copy of this is needed, please just ask.
