Holy Family And St Michael's Catholic Primary School


Hello and welcome to the Reception class page! I am Mrs Waddington and I am very excited to welcome you and your child into our school. I will be supported in class by Mrs Chadwick, Mrs Adamczyk, Miss Bowler and Miss Adams. We have a fun filled classroom that engages and supports learning. Foundation Stage helps us to settle into school, be happy, make friends and begin our primary school journey. 



Useful Information:

We do PE on a Wednesday so the children can come in their PE kits for the full day. The children do not need to bring their school uniform with them on this day.

We need a reading folder every day. Please check this daily as it may have important letters or information placed inside.

Any letters should be given to the office and not left in book bags as book bags are not checked.

We need a waterproof coat every day.

We need a water bottle with fresh water every day. Please note we are only allowed water in school.

Please can we ask that you pick your child’s dinner using the Live Kitchen app.

Please can reading books be brought into school each day. It is important for you to read daily with your child and write a comment in their yellow book. Reading books will be changed as often as possible.

Homework books will be sent out on a Friday and are to be returned to school on a Wednesday.


 Clubs in Reception

  Colouring club is on a Monday dinner time.

Partnership with Parents:

Dojos- for quick enquiries parents can message via Dojos. Please note that staff will only respond during school hours.

Stay and Plays will be held during each half term. This will allow you to come and work alongside your child in their classroom environment.  Please note we ask that siblings do not attend. 


 Below is a link to a summary of the curriculum for the current term

Autumn One

During Autumn One we will be helping the children to settle into their new school. We will be making new friendships, working on rules/ routines and exploring our new learning environment. We will be carrying out our baseline to see where the children are and to plan for their next steps. Some of our focused activities will be based on the topic 'All About Me.' We are very excited to get to know our new class! 

Autumn Two

 During Autumn Two we will be learning about the topic of 'Winter'. (Please see topic overview)


Spring One

We found some clues that link to our story focus for this half term. We looked at the clues as a class and the children guessed that it was the story of the 'Three Little Pigs.' We have created our own story map and added actions to help us remember this story. (Please see topic overview)
