Our school is a happy, exciting and caring community in which each child thrives.


  • Welcome to Reception!

Check out what we have been up to so far this year. We can also look back over your time at Woodthorpe Primary, from when you started in Nursery.

  • Getting to know your child

When children start in Reception we ask parents to complete the booklet (below) with their child and return it to the school so that we can get to know more about them and their life outside of school.

Cygnets - Roald Dahl.

Cygnets really enjoyed learning about Roald Dahl. We learned that he wrote lots of different books and we read 'The Enormous Crocodile' and 'The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me!' We were being authors ourselves and writing our own books, and being creative making our own collage of the enormous crocodile!

Cygnets - First Few Days at School

Cygnets have loved our first few days at school. We have been measuring and pouring in the water, building train tracks and driving trains on different adventures and made Enourmous Crocodiles to celebrate Roald Dahl day!

Goslings - First Few Days at School

We have had so much fun during our first few days in reception. We are enjoying making new friends and exploring our environment!
