Reception Classes

Saint Name: St Patrick
Class Teacher: Ms Bentaleb
Support Staff: Ms Piesse  (Currently on Maternity Leave) 

Welcome to Reception:

Reception children have settled in really well and they have been getting used to the daily routine, class rules and eating in the dinner centre.

 In class we have been learning how to work together and share and we have talked about ways in which we can be a “good friend”. We drew our self portraits and thought of words to describe ourselves. Next week, we will be drawing pictures of our families.


Congratulations  –   Our Early Years leader Ms Bentaleb has been appointed Southwark Early Years Champion 2018-2019.  A huge congratulations and well done to Ms Bentaleb, we are all very proud of her and very well deserved.  


Reception— God’s World

“Creation is the first and universal revelation of God’s love”

Religious Education Curriculum Directory

This half term, the children in the Reception classes will be learning about God’s world. Throughout this topic, the children will begin to appreciate the beauty of the world and know that God made it.

They will learn that God loves and cares for each one of us and reflect on this. They will hear about and respond to the things God created for us.

They will know that God has asked us to care for the world and think of ways in which we can help to do it.
