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

Our favourite story this week:
We have been reading the new story of 'Ruby's Worry' by Tom Percival to help the children talk about their feelings.

Here's a little poem for all Reception parents who might be feeling sad and missing their child whilst they are at school...
Please be reassured that every one will be treasured as they are in our school.
The First Day of School
I gave a reassuring smile
As you walked down the path today
For I know how hard it's to leave
When your children have to stay.
You've been with them for four/five years
And have been a loving guide,
But now, alas, the time has come
To leave them at my side.
Just know that as you drive away
And tears down your cheeks may flow
I'll guide them as I would my own
And help them learn and grow.
So please put your mind at ease
And cry those tears no more
For I will protect and nurture them
When you leave them at my door.
