Information about Reception


Reception have their PE day on a Thursday; they should come to school wearing their PE kit on this day.


At Ark Franklin, we  use an interactive online learning journal called Tapestry. Tapestry helps teachers to capture children's experiences as well as monitor development and learning. This journal is shared online with parents, who are able to see special moments and view their child's progress. At the end of Reception, parents are able to download and save a permanent version of their child's journal as a keepsake. 

Please speak to your child's class teacher if you need any support with this.


As a minimum, all children are expected to read daily.  Each fortnight children are given a project to complete on a specific theme. There is guidance given on how you can support your child with completing this. Additional targeted homework is set for individuals or groups according to identified needs.
