Reception

Welcome to Reception Class! Here at St Mary’s we work hard to provide a warm, safe (physically, emotionally & physiologically) environment, where children can grow and develop, to give them the best start as they begin their school journey. We promote their creativity, resilience as learners, their self-awareness and their awareness of others, both in the context of school but also the wider community. Come and have a look at the fun things Reception have been doing!

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!
As the children begin Year 1, they embark on another exciting year within our school. Now they start the transition from Reception to the more formal teaching in Key Stage 1. At the end of the year, they have to sit the National Phonics Screening Check – but don’t worry, our staff are here to support the children and parents/carers and the children will still enjoy our wonderful Creative Curriculum throughout the year.
