Welcome to Ribblesdale our reception class!

Please see the Newsletters for details of the topics that children are learning about. 

P.E is on a Wednesday so please ensure that your child has a full, labelled P.E. kit for that day. 

If you wish to speak to a member of the team please do not hesitate to make an appointment to speak to us.

Thank you

Mrs Ellis and Mrs Suarez 


Your child has been given a reading book to share with you at home. Please look at the book together at any opportunity and ask them questions about the story e.g. what is happening? How does he/she feel? Where is the _? What happens at the end? Etc.

Please comment in their reading record when you have looked at the book together. Reading books and records must in book bags everyday.


Tapestry is an easy-to-use innovative, interactive online learning journal which we use to record, track and celebrate children's progress in early years education.

This unique journal is shared online with parents, who are able to see special moments and view their child's progress.

Further information, including details of the security policy are given in the accompanying documents in the new starter pack. 

 Please click on the link below to access Tapestry.

The above link to a website will help when reading with your child as it plays the sounds of different letters that we are teaching. 

To use click on the arrow to enter the website.  Next  click on a letter and then click on the 'ear' to hear the sound of the letter (in lowercase).

We teach the children to write using a cursive script so we do not use the letter formation shown on here.

See here for a link to information on our phonics scheme.
