Welcome to the St Alban's Catholic Primary School website!

Reception Apple/Cherry

Welcome to our Reception class page. Here you will find lots of useful information about our learning.


We have a really busy half term ahead of us ending in our year group assembly on the 21st May at 9.15am for parents.

This week we have started our new topic on Superheroes and the children have been designing and labelling their own superhero character.  We have had some very imaginative names and super powers!

Could you please ask your child to bring in a teddy from home that they do not mind leaving in school for a few weeks as we will be making superhero clothes for them.


This half term we are thinking about New Life in both R.E, Literacy and Knowledge and Understanding of the World.  We will be looking at non-fiction books, investigating the signs of new life and lifecycles of animals, plants and insects.   Hopefully, we will be getting some tadpoles in the near future.  Please keep a look out for signs of new life when you are out and about and send in photos and objects for the children to share.  Please also encourage your children to write about the signs of new life that they have seen to share and be displayed in the classroom.


In PE we will be continuing to develop our ball skills and will be hopefully able to get outside for some outdoor P.E. as well.
