Welcome to Reception

St Therese of Lisieux Class


Hello and welcome to St Mary's Grantham - Reception Class.  Thank you for taking the time to look at all the exciting things we get up to!  We have also adopted St Therese of Lisieux as our Class Saint.  

My name is Mrs Glendinning and I have the pleasure of teaching the best class in the school :)  Mrs O'Leary and Miss Brummitt work with us and on Friday afternoons Mrs Flower is in the class whilst I am not there.   

We are learning how to get changed for our PE lessons on Mondays and Tuesdays so we always have our kits in school.

We love using all our amazing space (inside and out) and discovering lots of things, whilst we are learning.  We always have lots to talk about and enjoy sharing with our friends.  

Our Class morning prayer


Oh my God you love me

You're with me night and day

I want to love you always 

In all I do and say

I'll try to please you Father

Bless me through the day.

We can't believe how quickly this year is going?!?  Our final term together and another busy one.  Lunchtime club with Mr Hill, New Beginnings Mass, Life Education, The Crowning of Mary and watching eggs hatch and looking after own chicks! All this on top of all of our learning activities.

We planned and delivered our own Liturgy

As part of our topic this term Miss Brummitt brought her amazing tractor in for us to see.

We Found out about Pentecost and how important it is

We watched as the chicks hatched!

We joined the whole school for The Crowning of Mary

As we all know reading is such a key part of our development.  Early reading ignites creativity, sparks curiosity, and stimulates the imagination in young children. Often, this leads to role-play as children grow which helps to develop other skills such as empathy, problem-solving, and morality. 

When you share books with your child here are some questions to help you get even more from the experience.
