Welcome to Reception!


Welcome to our Reception class!

We welcome you all to our class page and hope you are able to access all of the documents and resources that will help you support your child and continue the amazing learning.  


The Way, The Truth and The Life


We follow The Way, The Truth and The Life for our Catholic Education. Our topic this half term is Sorrow and Joy. Within this topic the children will think about times we have been sorry and how we can ask Jesus to help us to do this.


At home you can help by


  • Encouraging your child to recognise when they have hurt someone. It is particularly difficult for young children to grasp the idea that someone’s feelings can be hurt.
  • Giving gentle reminders to say sorry in times of conflict, taking time to talk things over quietly so that you child thinks about what has happened.
  • Encouraging your child to give some small gift to a charitable cause and explain to them what the charity does to help people.
  • Taking your child to the special children’s liturgies that take place at the church in Holy Week


Home Learning 

All of the activities have been added to google drive. We have set it out In line with our weekly timetable.

Mrs Kendrick is uploading videos for the children to view via tapestry- please get involved!
