'Love to Learn, Together with the Lord' 


Welcome to our Reception Class Page


Our class team comprises of Mrs Ratcliffe, Mrs Conway and Mrs Edwards.  We are excited to welcome your children into our class and nurture their ideas and enthusiasm for learning.

Our Reception curriculum keeps us busy and active everyday both inside the classroom and in our outdoor area. We encourage our children to share their interests both in and out of school and use their ideas as foundations for creative learning opportunities.

BOOK CHANGE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you forget your book on those days you can send into class on a different day but we can not guarantee that we will have time to change them until the next book change day.

P.E. is on Tuesdays, please come into school in your P.E. kit on this day.  

READ IN SCHOOL with your child on Wednesdays, from 3pm our door will open and you will be welcome into class to read a book with your child. 

Early Years
