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.


Our topic this half term is “Emergency!” where we will be finding out all about people who help us.  We will be meeting our local Police Officers and will be asking them lots of questions to find out more about how the police help us.  We will also be meeting a firefighter and taking a look inside a fire engine.  We will be finding out about the fire service and more about doctors, nurses and hospitals.We will be doing an experiment to find out the importance of washing our hands and not spreading germs.  We will also be talking about dental care and finding out what we need to do to take care of our teeth.


We will of course be following the children's interests so will be exploring any other 'helpful' jobs that the children talk about.
