St John's CE (C) Primary School

Life in all its fullness'


 A very warm welcome to Reception Class



The Reception children are taught by Mrs. J. Bayley and our 

 teaching assistant is Mrs. C. Welsh.



Dear Reception class! 


A very big welcome from us to all our families from nursery and reception class.

We hope that you enjoy the learning journey that your child is continuing through the foundation stage of their education and we are sure that you will be amazed by the progress that they make.

We begin our day with class registration (meet and greet). We use RWI Phonics where our children learn to read and write from the start.

We will do a lot of learning through play, by exploring and investigating and we will be led by the children's current interests during the continuous provision.


With your support the sky's the limit!
