Welcome to Reception at Bedford Primary School. We are delighted to have met all of our new children either on home visits or during visits to school. We are looking forward to beginning our journey towards becoming happy, confident Bedford learners ready to face each new challenge set in class. Our teachers are really excited to have the opportunity to work with our new families and hope to work together to create the very best opportunities for our children. We have high expectations at Bedford and our children and families should know that they must:-


* Read every day at home

* Complete homework set on a Friday and return by Wednesday

* Wear full uniform

* Have PE kit in school for the half term

* Bring a water bottle to school

* Come and see us if they have any questions or worries.

Long Term Plan 2018-19

As a parent or guardian, how can I help with my child’s learning?

All the fun activities that you do with your child at home are important in supporting their learning and development, and have a really long lasting effect on your child’s learning as they progress through school. When your child leaves school, please talk to them about their day. 

If you make the time every day to do some of the following things with your child it will make a real difference to your child’s confidence as a young learner. 

Let's go to the dough disco!

Best Start Maths Workshop

Sing along with me: number rhymes counting book

Best Start Reading Workshop

Activities to support your child with reading at home:

  • Fred Games

Fred is a frog who can say and read words only as pure sounds.  He cannot say whole words.  The team at Read Write Inc phonics have put together some 'Fred Games' for parents to use to support their children when they are learning how to blend sounds together to build words.  Click below to watch the video and to read the PDF leaflet for more Fred Talk ideas.
