Welcome to Reception!
My name is Miss Brown and I am the Reception teacher here at St.Catharine’s.
Mrs Morley, Mrs Leyland and Miss Wilson also work in class with us and we are all so excited to welcome you to our wonderful school!
We have so many exciting things planned for your first year of Primary School and I’m sure we will have lots of smiles and fun along the way. To find out about all of the things you’ll be learning about in Reception this year, please see the link below ‘Our Curriculum’.

Our Class Room
In 2023-24 we are continuing to teach our brand new, bespoke St Catharine’s Curriculum! Each unit has been created by the teaching team at school to promote an independent, life-long love of learning.
Within every area of provision in the reception classroom, children are exposed to a wealth of learning opportunities. Within our indoor and outdoor environment, we provide ample opportunities for the children to apply their learning within their play, both independently and adult led.
We endeavour to create rich learning experiences which reflect the children’s interests and fascinations, therefore
our planned activities are carefully crafted to match their needs.
At St. Catharine’s, we promote early reading in children as soon as they arrive with us in September as we believe this underpins their natural curiosity of storytelling and enjoyment of stories. We begin to teach individual phonemes
during daily Read, Write, Inc. phonic sessions, as well as how to segment and blend sounds in words to read them.
Learning, playing and exploring is what we do best! Please click on the button below to see what Reception will be learning about this year!
