Welcome to Reception

Welcome to the St. Mary's family. We are super excited to meet the children again and get to know them even better! We hope you've all had a wonderful summer and the children are ready for the learning adventures to come. Please find lots of useful information on our class page which will include photos and details of the topics and learning covered throughout the year. Please ensure that you register for class dojo to ensure you receive regular updates from both Reception and school. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the Reception team.

Many Thanks

Mrs Allen and Mrs Thirsk

What are we learning about this Half Term?

How can you help at Home?

There are lots of things you can do at home to help your child and these include;

  • Sharing lots of books
  • Singing nursery rhymes
  • Counting at every opportunity
  • Encouraging them to get dressed independently 
  • Talk about numbers, letters and words which you notice in the environment (road names, bus numbers, car registrations, shop signs)
  • Ensuring that they read their reading book every day
  • Encouraging them to write at every opportunity
