The Good Shepherd

Catholic Primary School

“I am the Good Shepherd; I know my own and my own know me”. John 10:14"

Reception - St Rose Philipine


On Monday 14th September 2020, the whole school put down their pens, pencils and books, threw on their swimming things and had a fabulous day at the beach without leaving the school gates.  No-one enjoyed it more than our Reception class, some of whom had only known the school for just over a week!


Take a look at these photos of the fun we had that day!smiley


Coronavirus has made outside learning more important than ever for primary schools.  We are fortunate that we were able to come into school during lockdown to refresh our early years' garden, reorganise resources, repaint the woodwork and plant new bushes and fruit trees.  We hope that we have created a stimulating, happy place for the children to learn and grow.


September's amazing weather has given us the opportunity to be outside a lot.  It's important for developing gross motor skills, fitness and physical confidence.  It also gives the children the chance to take part in scientific investigation first-hand: using weights, buckets and pulleys, the water wall, the mud kitchen, gathering plants and leaves for pretend cooking or using magnifying glasses to get a closer look at spiders, beetles and snails. 


Here are some photos of the children exploring these things together in our garden, making friends, devloping their language skills and learning to work together cooperatively. 





At 11.45am every day, following our phonics session, we wash our hands, sing our lunchtime prayer and take our seats in the hall. The children go up to get their lunch and choose what they want in addition from the salad bar.  The children have music sessions with Mr Cape twice a week, a weekly outdoors multi-sports session and gym in the hall with me.
