Our Lady's Catholic Academy

Together in faith, hope and love.

In our Reception family we have got Mrs Lloyd, Mrs Lythgoe and Mrs Shingler and 30 delightful children. The staff are very excited for the Autumn term where we will all be having great fun leaning and growing together in faith, love and hope.

We truly  believe that 'anything is possible'.

Please visit our class gallery where we share lots of photographs  of our learning . 

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. 

 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.

 

    Physical Development

    This term we are very excited to be learning many new skills in our physical developments lessons. This term our topic is Dance  We have our lessons in the hall or across the fields and need to wear our full kit. Please ensure that all items of clothing including pumps are clearly labelled to try and avoid any mix ups.

      

    Celebration Assembly

    Each Friday morning 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. The lunch time stars get to select a friend to sit with them on the VIP table on the following Monday in the lunch hall.  The reading star gets to have a reading buddy (cuddly toy) to take home for the week to read with and share books with.  We are extremely proud of all our children!
