Reception Class is part of the Foundation Stage.

We are a very happy class. We are looked after by Mrs Harris and Mrs Maguire and Mrs Wildbure. We are very lucky as Mrs Maguire and Mrs Wildbure look after us at lunchtime too.

We share our Foundation Stage classroom and all its wonderful resources with our friends in Nursery.

We start school at 8.30 and come into the classroom ourselves. We need our bookbags each day as all our important letters get placed inside. Could parents make sure they check and empty our bookbags of letters and pictures everyday please.

We love our Year 6 Buddies.

Anything else you need to know – please come in and ask.

Autumn 2020

Please find attached details of the Autumn 2020 Curriculum Newsletter, this provides a summary of the topics that your children will be studying this term.

We have reviewed our curriculum offer in Autumn to assist the recovery process for all our pupils following their prolonged absence from school as a result of school closures in March 2020.  We aim to reignite the flame of learning in each child by restoring the children’s mental health and rebuilding their resilience allowing them to become resilient learners again.

In addition, the attached parent’s letter provides details of Religious Education topics.


Each term our Year 5 children upload information collated from each class as part of one of our Extended school Clubs.  All information below is written by the children for parents and interested parties to gain a deeper insight into what fun and interesting activities each class are partaking in each term.
