Welcome to the Reception Class page


The Early Years at South Hill School consists of two Reception classes, Wrens and Robins. Wrens class teachers are Miss Kemplen and Mrs Rich with Early Years Practitioner Miss Copeland; Robins class teacher is Mrs Rance with Early Years Practitioner, Mrs Khan.  Mrs Smith will be supporting both classes throughout the week and will be the Teaching Assistant in Robins in place of Mrs Khan on a Friday.

Robins class will have PE on a Tuesday and Wrens class on a Thursday. Please ensure that all items in your child's PE kit are clearly labelled with their name. PE kits will be kept on your child's peg and sent home each half term. Earrings need to be removed or taped up at home on the day of their PE lesson.

All children will need to bring a named and filled water bottle into school each day, which they will keep in the classroom and have access to throughout the day.

Please make sure that your child is appropriately dressed for the weather each day as we will be outside come rain or shine! If you would like to supply wellies, please label them and put them in a bag to be kept on your child's peg.


We will be learning lots of exciting things over the coming terms, using both out indoor and outdoor areas.  For information about Early Years and what we will be doing this term please see the links on this page.  


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or questions.


Miss Kemplen, Mrs Rich and Mrs Rance
