 Welcome to Reception Class   


Mrs McDonnell (Class Teacher & Deputy Headteacher)
Mrs Groves (Teaching Assistant)

Reception Class have adopted the British Value of 'Helpfulness'.
Throughout this Reception year, we will be looking for ways in which

we can be helpful to each other in school and at home.


In Reception Class, we like to have lots of fun whilst we learn.

Our class motto is: 'We try to be kind and helpful to others'.
We aim for every child to feel happy and safe in school.
We like good behaviour, good manners and kindness.

We hope your child enjoys their Reception year at St. Gregory's
Best wishes,
Mrs McDonnell & Mrs Groves

Reception Reading Meeting

Thank you to all our parents who attended the Reception Reading meeting on Tuesday 19th September. We hope you found the meeting informative and that you gained an understanding of how we teach early reading and synthetic phonics at St. Gregory's School. We hope you found the hand-out useful and know how you can support your child with their reading at home. Your child will be bringing their first reading book home shortly. Please spend 5 to 10 minutes daily practising their reading at home.


Reception children performed songs and showed their self-portraits at our special Welcome Assembly...
