St. Paul's R.C. Primary School As God's family we aspire to love, grow, learn and achieve beyond our dreams


Welcome to our Reception class


Our class motto is "I can" because the children are encouraged to believe they can do anything - all they have to do is try!


Our teaching team are Mrs. Bailey, Mrs. Hunt and Mrs. Eddleston the class teacher. We aim to offer your child a stimulating learning environment that enables them to learn through play. We encourage children to develop independence and the skills needed to prepare them for their school career.

We are a dedicated Early Years team and look forward to working with families as partners to ensure every child achieves their potential. If you have any questions please call in and speak to one of the team and we will try to support you and your child.

Our aim is for your child to enjoy their time in Early Years and to leave with many happy memories. If you have any concerns I am always available to listen and work with you.

Happily Ever After Polar Regions

This half term Reception class will be focusing our learning around Traditional stories. Each week the story will come alive through different experiences both inside and outside the classroom. The children will begin to learn how to retell a story using Pie Corbett actions and use their thinking and questioning skills to unravel clues left for them from different characters in the story.


During our topic work we will be investigating and exploring polar regions and the animals that live there. We will learn how to program a Beebot to travel from the Arctic to the Antarctic and use clay to sculpture a penguin.
