Welcome to Reception 

Hello and welcome to St. Mary's! We are so excited that you have come to join our school family.

Our Class Teacher is Mrs Hodgkinson and we also have Mrs Thirsk working in our classroom every day. We have Mrs Cooper working with us on Tuesdays for this term, too. 


We are looking forward to welcoming you into school for your visits and working up to our full days. We can't wait to get to know you all and find out all about your hobbies and interests. Our first topic is 'All About Me' and it's one of my favourite because it's a great way to get to know each other. 


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the Reception Team or send a message over Dojo.

Many thanks,

Mrs Hodgkinson and Mrs Thirsk
