Welcome to Reception

There are two classes in Reception. You will be in class with our reception teachers Mrs Sykes or Mrs Pollard.

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Bowcutt, Miss Richardson and Miss Cole.

Your child will have PE with Mr Perez and Mr Draper.

Your child will be taught Music by Mrs Bowcutt.

We use Class Dojo to let parents know how when their children receive praise for something they have done in school. This could include:

  • Sensible behaviour
  • Excellent effort
  • Kindness
  • Great work

Once you have downloaded the Class Dojo app and inputted the unique code for your child you will receive alerts when your child has earned a ‘dojo’. This can really help reinforce the praise that we are giving at school as well as being a useful reminder when children say they can’t remember what happened at school.

Please note that we are not using all of the features of Class Dojo at Muxton. We will continue to use the year group email addresses for communication with teachers so please do not use the messaging section of Class Dojo as this will not be monitored.

Do let us know if you need any help with setting up Class Dojo on your device. We will be happy to help! Download it for Apple or Android here.
