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 works with us and on Friday 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 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.
People who help us
We have also been thinking about all the people who help us, at home, at school and those that help to keep us safe. We have had visitors in to come and talk to us about what they do.
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.
