Welcome to Reception Class.


Our teacher is Mrs Bonaparte (and Mrs Chow on a Wednesday) and we currently have 30 children in our class.  Our learning support assistants are Miss Wallace, Mrs Williams and Mrs Worthington. 


At St Mary's we pride ourselves on creating a warm, safe and caring environment where children love to be.  We learn through play, through adult-initiated and child-initiated activities and follow the Early Years Curriculum.


In Reception Class we ensure our children have a wide range of Early Years experiences which are interesting, stimulating and purposeful.  We aim to meet the needs of all our children so that each child can develop at their own pace at first alongside peers and then together and collaboratively in a progressive way.  By the end of Reception we hope to have developed confident, independent learners who begin to see themselves as readers, writers, explorers, problem-solvers and artists ready for their continued education in Year One.


We ensure Reception Class is included in exciting experiences such as school trips, dance, P.E. and outdoor learning at our tree house and in the local woods on a regular basis.
