Miss Garbett wants to read you another story RG. Enjoy!



We would like to wish you a wonderful welcome to all the children joining us in Reception this year. All the staff have missed being in the classroom- we are determined to make this year the most fun and jam-packed with learning yet!

This term, the topic is All About Me. The children will be learning about their new class, their new friends, their new teachers and what makes them special. The children will draw, paint, build, write, count, dance, laugh and learn. We can’t wait to get to know you all.

If you have any questions, worries or issues, please do contact your class teacher. We want your child to be happy at Hillary Primary and we are here to help.

Famous Artists

Just before half term, Reception were looking at the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Would it be OK to put this link on the website for families to look at?
