Welcome to Reception Class   


with Mrs McDonnell and Mrs Groves


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 have adopted the 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)
