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

Reception Curriculum Map - Autumn 1

The children seem settled in their new school environment and are enjoying their weekly timetable.  We have regular carpet times, where children learn to sit and listen attentively and participate in class dicussions. Every morning at 10am storytime takes place and then the door is open for free access to the garden.  Before lunch, at 11.15, we learn a new phonic sound each day and revise the ones from the days before.  After lunch at 12.45 we have a daily maths session. 


Tuesdays is outdoor PE - multiskills, Wednesday is gym in the hall.  For the last three Thursdays the children have gone to Kite Studios for workshops where they have been using a wide range of tools and materials to develop self-portraits!  I hope you'll be able to get to their mini exhibition on Thursday 30th September after school and see how much fun they've had and what a wonderful creative journey they've been on.  Below is a selection of photos from our first few weeks to give you a feel for our environment.

A super start to our new school year...


Here we are eating lunch for the very first time in the hall.  We always have the choice of different vegetables and salad with our lunch every day.  Puddings range from yoghurt and fresh fruit salad to home-made brownies and crumbles.






Music and PE sessions have started too.  Here are some photos of us in the big playground with Patch, our multi-skills teacher on a Tuesday.  On Wednesdays we do gymnastics with Mrs Henbrey in the school hall.





We painted backgrounds then drew and placed ourselves onto our very first school paintings!
