St Paul's RC Primary School “the missing piece of your child's education” ‘We are the family of God’


Welcome to Reception

Welcome to our Reception Class, where we love to learn through play!  Your children are taught by Mrs Eddleston, Mrs Bailey and Mrs Hunt. We enjoy working together with you so that your child continues to have a very exciting and productive year.






















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

Starry Nights!

Our topic this half term will be Starry Nights! We will be reading both fiction and non fiction stories based around Nocturnal animals and how to keep safe as the nights are getting longer. Our Role play area is ‘Percy’s hut’ and the outdoor area is ‘A dark, dark cave.’
