Dear Parents/Carers of our 2020 new starters,

We are delighted to welcome your child to Astwood Bank Primary to start their educational journey.

From Monday 7th - 11th September, your child will do mornings only 9-12noon without lunch. From Monday 14th - 18th September they will stay from 9–1pm including lunch. They will then start full time from Monday 21st September 9am - 2.55pm. 

Our Reception Newsletters will be posted here by Friday each week to let you know what's up and coming.  Please do check in each week as paper versions will no longer be issued. 




Useful websites

You will be provided with a login for Discovery Education.  There are a range of videos to watch for phonics, looking at the sounds that the children have learnt. For each of the sounds here are lots of games to play in the activity section, including blending and segmenting words and linking the picture to the correct initial sound.

For some online books to read please see You can register yourself as a parent and access an array of e-books in the library.  

We also have an SEND page on our website with some activities that some of you may find useful, particularly for speech and language ideas.
