Please take a moment to look at some photos of the fun exciting activities planned throughout the day in Reception.  Phonics is also taught each morning, helping pupils learn their sounds and practice their sounds in their writing.


Reception –  New Life

“Jesus’ life, death and resurrection are the central event of all human history and at the heart of faith”

This half term, the children in the Reception classes will be learning about new life. They will learn about the story of the empty tomb, and learn that Jesus appeared to his disciples. The children will begin to understand the special gift of joy and peace that Jesus gave to his friends (John 20: 19-21) and can give to us as well. They will hear the story of Jesus going back to his Father and learn that   one day we shall hopefully go there too.

 At home

you could help your children by:                                       

  • Planting an Easter garden, looking for signs of new life
  • practise the Sign of the Cross, ‘Our Father’ & ‘Hail Mary’
  • encouraging them to write their own prayers
