Welcome to Reception!

We would like to welcome both new and existing families to our Reception class as your children continue, or begin, their journey at St George’s Roman Catholic Primary School.

Our Patron Saint in Reception is St. Nicholas

Both our Nursery and Reception classes work closely together as we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.  

Our Reception teachers are Mrs Ellington and Mrs Oliver who are wonderfully supported by our assistant teachers, Miss Murray, and Mrs Iggulden.

The Reception year is a very special time where children learn all the skills necessary for school. We learn to be a kind friend, express ourselves effectively and be independent learners as well as beginning our journey to read and write. A lot of our learning is through play, as this is how young children learn best!

Alongside COOL time (Continuing Our Own Learning) in our indoor and outdoor environments, we have some special events during the week.

Reception enjoy:

  • Forest schools on Monday
  • Mass or Liturgy on Thursday
  • Singing and Dancing on Thursday

Reception PE is on Thursday and your child will come in their PE uniform on this day (white tshirt, black shorts/ joggers or leggings, black hoodie and trainers). PE is taught by Mrs Heathfield.

On Thursday 26th October Reception will have their first liturgy. This will be at 9.30 and parents are welcome. Please check the newsletter above for further important dates!

We use Tapestry, our online learning journal system, to share your child’s day to day learning and communicate messages.
