Reception – Saint Francis

Welcome to RNJ St Francis class page! I am so excited to be teaching in Reception this year, alongside Miss Bailey and Mrs Phillips who will be our teaching assistants. In Reception, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and endeavour to capture children’s imagination and interests through lots of interesting, hands on learning experiences. Check back here regularly to see all of the fantastic things we have been getting up to in class.

Our P.E day will be on a Friday and this year we ask children to come to school in their school P.E kits. On Thursday will be Forest School, Children need to be coming to school in old joggers suitable for Forest School and then wellies in a bag (preferably left at school) with school uniform jumper and t-shirt. Please don't forget a warm, waterproof coat too.
