Reception class 2020-21 

Learninglivingloving together in Christ.


          Welcome to our class page 


We are really looking forward to welcoming all of the new children into our Reception class. We hope that the children will enjoy the start of their school journey here at Our Lady and St Rose of Lima, and their love of learning will continue to grow!
Reception will be working really hard this year and will have lots of fun doing so! Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett will keep this page updated with all the fantastic work Reception are doing and interesting activities that they are involved in. Pictures, news and any useful links to support learning at home will also be included.


Please click on the picture links below - they will take you to new pages with much more to explore! Enjoy! smiley




 Prayer in Reception 

Hi Reception (and parents),
We are currently creating a prayer collage around the class Altar.

We would love it if the children could either bring in a photo or post a photo on the blog of one of the following things:

  • A photo of a family meal or family gathering that the children have enjoyed at home.
  • A photo of a family meal at home - healthy eating.
  • A photo of somewhere you have visited recently which shows a place where the food has come from - farm etc.

We will be displaying them on our class altar as a focus for when we say our daily prayers and thank God for all that is provided for us. If you are able to do this, we would be very grateful. Any that are posted on the blog, we can print here in school.

Thank you once again, Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett
