Welcome to Reception


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!

My name is Mrs Glendinning and I have the pleasure of teaching the best class in the school :)  Mrs O'Leary works with us and on Wednesday afternoons Mrs Flower is in the class whilst I am not there.  Miss Brummitt is also in our class working with us on Mondays and Fridays.  

We our learning the skills needed to change 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.

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.  

As part of Lent and 'doing something for nothing' Reception Class made a Lenten tree made up of promises made by The Family of St Mary's.
