St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

A Voluntary Academy

Trusting in God; Creating Tomorrow; Helping Today


Welcome to Reception!


In Reception we follow the 'Early Years Foundation Stage', which consists of the following areas of learning:


Prime Areas

  • Communication and Language 
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development


Specific Areas

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design


Children in Reception learn through focused groups with an adult and through child initiated activities. The classroom's extra provision is planned to match our current topic or book we are reading. 


Mrs Wilkins and Mrs Seaman are our class teachers and Mrs Pawlowska is our teaching assistant.
