Welcome to the Reception class web page. Here you can find further information about life in reception class. If you have any questions or queries please contact the school office.


 Our half termly curriculum news letter is at the top of the page for your information.

Over the year, we will have five recurring themes based upon topics we revisit throughout each year and are relevant to the world we live in today. These themes are:

All about me

The Changing Year

Colours all around us

The Natural World

Let's Celebrate


The children will continue to learn through play with activities and planning in the moment based upon the children's current interests and fascinations


The children will be learning about God and Jesus following the Birmingham Diocesan Curriculum Learning and Growing as the People of God. The children also will listen to a variety of Bible stories, learning about the key people in the Bible and why they were important and relevant to us today. As part of our ongoing theme, The Natural World, we will learning how we can look after God's Creation. 

Reception have their own class prayer:


Let us thank you O Lord,

For this wonderful day.

Help us as we learn and play,

Help us to be kind to all

And catch us when we fall.

Teach us to love and pray

As we move through the day.


The children also learn a variety of prayers through our prayer of the month. For January, our prayer of the month is Glory Be.

Glory be to the Father, 
and the Son, 

and to the Holy Spirit, 
as it was in the beginning, 

is now and ever shall be, 
world without end.
