Welcome to Reception Class.

The teachers in Reception are Mrs Bonaparte and Mrs Robinson.  


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