Part of

All Saints Catholic Collegiate

In our Reception family we have got Mrs Lloyd, Mrs Lythgoe and Mrs Shingler and 24 delightful children. We are enjoying spending time together  where  will are having great fun  and leaning and growing together in faith, love and hope. 

We truly  believe that 'anything is possible'.


Our school day is 9:00am until 3:00pm and the children access school through the Early Years gate. 


Please visit our class gallery where we share lots of photographs  of our learning .  We also like to share our learning on Twitter!

Parental Engagement 

Magic moments are used  in Reception as an opportunity to share great news about the children. Please send them in regularly as they support your children's learning and are a great focus for a talking point. If you require any more please ask a member of staff who will happily hand them over. The magic moments are displayed in the classroom and then used in the children's individual profile. 


We also use an online learning journey called 'Tapestry' to evidence the learning that takes place. We ask that parents log into this account and engage, by commenting on their child's uploads and successes, viewing and using the recommended websites, accessing home- learning but to also share their own photos to show what learning is taking place at home. 


 Home learning is a very important part of your child’s academic development. It supports and consolidates the work your child is doing in school and it also gives you a chance to become involved in the learning process. Home learning  is set weekly and each child has a green home learning book where some pieces will be recorded. We ask that you please read with your children each night and share the flash cards together. We ask that the plastic wallets containing home learning books, reading books and flash cards are sent into school each day. Reading books will be changed on a Monday or when required during the week.  


    Physical Development

    This term we are very excited to be learning many new skills in our physical developments lessons.   Please ensure that children come into school each Tuesday dressed in their full PE kit. School uniforms will not be needed on this day. 


    We use the outside classroom daily so please ensure that your child has a coat and suitable footwear in school. We ask that a waterproof, warm coat, hat, scarf and gloves are provided through the winter months and sun cream is applied before school during the spring and summer months, when the temperatures begin to rise. We will provide a school sun hat for all children to wear while they are at school. Wellington boots are a MUST, all year around, due to our wonderful erratic British weather. We ask that a pair are left at school, on your child's personal basket, to ensure that all children have equal opportunities to use the outdoor space in all types of weather.  


    *In the interest of health and safety, no jewellery is permitted in the Early Years Foundation Stage*


    Celebration Assembly

    Each Friday afternoon in our classroom we have a special celebration where we thank God for our wonderful week at school and children may receive certificates. We present two children with a lunch time award, one star of the week and one worker of the week.   We are extremely proud of all our children!

    11 by 11                   11 challenges by 11 years old.

    All children are provided with a red book with a set of challenges at the front. We ask that children and parents work their way through the challenges together, sharing these experiences and building up their knowledge about the local area in which they live. The activities are fun and achievable for all. Additionally, they  will expose children to a breadth of new and exciting experiences as well as lots of new vocabulary.


    Please send the books in for the staff to share and talk about with the children.
