Welcome to Longton Primary School. We are delighted and very excited that you and your child / children will be joining us in September and we look forward to working in partnership with you in the future.

We are hoping that the home visits will take place as planned during the first week in September. This will allow us to meet your child / children in their own familiar surroundings. This will be a short visit but please feel free to ask us any questions.

During your time in Reception, as a member of our 'Giraffe Tribe', your child / children will meet lots of new friends, learn many new skills and take part in exciting activities both in the classroom and outdoors.

We will regularly update our class blog to share photographs of our indoor and outdoor learning experiences, our achievemnets as well as exciting and interesting activities that we have planned for the giraffes 

In September please remember to send a sun hat in your childs book bag as well as a water bottle and their PE kit. Please also send in a pair of wellies so that we can safely work in our outdoor area and not get wet feet!  (All named please) 

We hope that you have a lovely summer and we look forward to seeing you all in September,

Mrs Thomson,Miss Lynch.
