St Peters Catholic Primary School

Autumn Term 2018

We are reading 'Funny Bones'


The book inspired us to create some artwork.








Miss Luff and Mrs Nolan welcome you as the children begin their learning journey here at St. Peter's Catholic Primary School.

This is a very important and exciting  year and we will work in partnership with you to care for and educate your child. We aim to offer new opportunities to your child to help draw out their ability and potential, helping each individual to grow and develop in preparation for the future.

Our Catholic Faith is at the heart of everything we do in Reception Class. Your child will learn that Jesus loves us all and that we are special. We all try hard to treat everyone that we meet with love and respect, just as Jesus did.

Your child will be learning skills, gaining new knowledge and demonstrating understanding through seven areas of learning and development.

The three prime areas are:

  • Communication and Language;
  • Physical Development;
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development.

Your child will also develop skills in four specific areas. These are:

  • Literacy;
  • Mathematics;
  • Understanding the World;
  • Expressive Arts and Design.

Amazing Animals

Reception have had an amazing term learning all about animals! 
We began our journey in the desert learning all about safari animals, we then moved onto the jungle and found out all about animals in the rainforest and we finished our journey down on the farm learning all about the animals you would find there. 

In Literacy, we began the topic by reading 'Dear Zoo' by Rod Campbell. The children thoroughly enjoyed this story and could read it all by themsevles by the end of the topic. They wrote their own letters to the zoo asking for an animal, which animal would you like from the zoo?


We had a great afternoon when Miss Birch transformed our school hall into a jungle! We became explorers for the afternoon and had to complete a series of missions to pass the test. We packed a bag suitable for the jungle, went on an animal hunt in the trees and built a raft to get us safely across the river.

The Little Red Hen

Our first school topic started with a crime scene... Last night someone broke into our classroom and started baking bread in our café role play area. They left such a mess, there were flour, pots and pans every where this morning. We found out that it was The Little Red Hen that made the mess. After we cleaned up the mess,  we found the story of The Little Red Hen and learnt the actions to help us retell the story.

Throughout the topic we looked at the different patterns in different types of bread and tried to copy them using play dough. We really enjoyed making our own bread rolls and bringing them home to share with our families.  We also really enjoyed our trip to Mount Pleasant School Farm, we helped Nina and Farmer Giles with their daily routines of taking care of the different animals.

Reception have been getting hands on in the morning with their learning, and getting their parents involved as well.
