Welcome to Reception!


This year we have 26 wonderful children starting Reception and we are supported by the amazing Mrs. McGowan and Mrs. Nelson.

Remember to check back regularly to see what we have been learning about during the first few weeks of term!

General Housekeeping...

  • Please remember to return your Tapestry Online Learning Journal permission slips so that you can securely access your child's own observations at home from October 2017.
  • Please ensure all book bags, coats, jumpers, P.E. kits, snack or lunch bags and water bottles are clearly labelled with your child’s name. 

We are so excited to work together in partnership.

Please feel free to arrange a meeting with me if you have any queries or concerns. Alternatively, you can email me at: rrowley@trawden.lancs.sch.uk
