St Mary's Catholic Primary School

‘One family united in Christ to be the best we can be’

Class 1 (Reception)

Welcome, my name is Miss Duxbury and along with Miss Perch I teach Class 1.


Our topic for this term is 'You've got a friend in me'. Throughout this topic, we will be reading a variety of friendship and emotion themed texts. This allows us the opportunity to explore a variety of  feelings, emotions and strategies to help manage these. As early years professionals, we understand children need to feel safe and secure to achieve to their full potential. At the beginning of the year our aim is to ensure all children form positive relationships and feel safe within school.


We are delighted that this year we open our brand new Reception learning space. We are exceptionally proud of our new facility and are looking forward to the completion of the outside learning space to compliment the interior. We are planning a year of learning, fun and laughter to start your child's learning journey at St Mary's.
