St Mary's CofE Primary School


Welcome to Reception!

My name is Mr Horan and I am the Reception class teacher.
In Reception I am supported by Mrs Cirelli.


A very warm welcome to the Reception class webpage. Mrs Cirelli and I are looking forward to a fun and successful year with our lovely new children.

Please remember if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact a member of the Reception team, we are always happy to help.


Reading Books

Reading and library books are changed every Thursday. Please complete your child’s reading record to indicate if you have read the book with your child at home.



In Reception we cover a variety of topics. 
Our topics this year are:

  * Autumn 1 - All about me

  * Autumn 2 - People who help us/ Christmas

  * Spring 1 - Winter/Space

  * Spring 2 - Fairy Stories

  * Summer 1 - Minibeasts and Growth

  * Summer 2 - Zoo and Farmyard animals

Spread the Happiness


In Reception we have been trying to ‘spread the happiness’ by engaging in the 100 things to do before you are 6. We asked our parents/carers to take a photograph of their child engaging in one of the activities and add it to their online learning journal. It has been lovely to see what the children have been learning outside of school.
