Reception Class St. Bernadette

My name is Mr. McCarthy and I will be the class teacher of Reception this year alongside Ms. Manesh and Ms. Monika. We are delighted to welcome all the children to school to continue making learning a fun and enjoyable experience that can be used both inside and outside of the classroom. We look forward to a productive and rewarding school term.

We recently had a visit from local police officers who spoke about the ways and importance of keeping safe.

Reception have been exploring number bonds to 5. They have been finding different ways to represent a total quantity of 5.

Reception were delighted with the recent frosty mornings. Their natural instinct to explore and discover brought lots of smiles throughout the day.

There was a lot of excitement in EYFS recently as our outdoor resources having started to arrive! They are further discovering their love of reading in our new reading hut. Watch this space for more exciting updates!

It is amazing to see the children's fine motor skills progress in such a short space of time while having fun learning

Advent is a time where we prepare for the birth of baby Jesus. Reception have been helping to prepare for this by writing a shopping list!

Parents evening will take place in the Reception classroom on Monday 22nd November 2021. Please book a time slot on Tucasi.

Year 4 came to read to Reception Friday afternoon. It was lovely to watch Reception engrossed in the stories!

Reception collaborated to build a tower this week. Suddenly, it fell! I am sure you can see in the photos what a shock this was! They worked together to build a tower again and it is a joy to see their resilience at this age.

Reception have been reading Harry and his Dinosaurs Go to School. Dino the Explorer left a mysterious egg in our classroom which finally hatched to reveal our very own dinosaur! They were all so excited! The class voted to name him Chase the Dinosaur. Chase has been a little bit mischievous and keeps going missing. However, Reception are excellent detectives and have enjoyed finding where he is hiding.

Another busy week in Reception! It has been such a joy to watch everyone have fun learning and progress in such a short space of time.

Year 6 have been busy helping to design a new Nursery and Reception playground! Its an exciting time for everyone!

Reception have been busy settling into the new school year. They have been learning and having lots of fun meeting old friends and making new friends.
