During the current Coronavirus outbreak, we would like to try to continue to engage the children in their learning. Please try some of the following suggestions to support your child at home...

Welcome to Reception Class

with Mrs McDonnell & Mrs Groves  


Reception Class has adopted the Gospel value & virtue of 'peace' and 'thankfulness'.

Peace - Matthew 5:9

Blessed are the peacemakers, they shall be called children of God.

Thankfulness- Psalm 104:33

I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to God while I live.

This psalm is a song of thankfulness to our God.


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.


Reception Class has also 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.


We hope your child really enjoys their Reception year at St. Gregory's!

Best wishes,
Mrs McDonnell (Class teacher/Deputy Headteacher) & Mrs Groves (Teaching Assistant)
