Welcome to the Reception class page. 


Our class saint is St Bernadette.

We will be learning all about St Bernadette this year. We will be exploring what a fantastic lady she was and how we can use her as an example of living out our Mission Statement. 


During Spring term we will be focusing on our 'eggciting eggs' vehicle. We will be learning about different types of animals that come from eggs and their life cycles. The children will also look back in History to discover old and new toys and what materials they are made from. We are hoping to visit Gruff farm and the museum of early childhood in the Spring term.   



Please take a look at our curriculum map below to find out more. 



We spend lots of time in our lovely outdoor area so children will need to bring coats and water bottles to school every day. If it is wet children can bring wellies. In the Summer children can bring hats and sun cream. Please make sure ALL items of clothing are clearly labelled including water bottles, lunch boxes and PE kits.


We are a Read Write inc school and we work very hard to support your child to become a reader who loves books. To support your child please read every night at home and sign the diary. A book bag must be in school every day to enable us to read with your child and change their book. Children will be sent home with a book after the first week at school. 


Children will have a RWI book and a book for pleasure for you to share at home. 


We have our weekly 'Mystery Reader' so please don't forget to sign up!


Please visit the Read Write INc page for more information and don't forget to attend our Read Write INc parents meeting on Wednesday 23rd September.


PE is on a Thursday afternoon so please ensure your child has a full kit in school so they can take part in their exciting PE session with Mr Walker.
