Reception Class Page

Hello and welcome to Reception class 23-24. We are looking forward to teaching you all this year, and creating memories in your first year at Holy Name. 

Our children are taught by Mrs Hemming ( Monday- Thursday) and Mrs Leonard on a Friday.  We are also lucky to have our amazing teaching assistants Miss Martin and Mrs Ahmed supporting the children in their learning all week.

This year, your PE day is Monday and Friday, please come to school in your PE kit and trainers on these days!

 Keep an eye on the Holy Name Twitter page to see what we have been getting up to in class. We can't wait to share our learning with you.

If you have any questions, or need any support with your child's learning please let me know and I am more than happy to help.

For any of the above sessions we welcome any relatives to come and support your child. I understand parents have work commitments and therefore varied the days and times across the half term.

We would also love for any parents, careers or grandparents to come in on a Monday at 2.55pm to share a story in our secret reader session with the children. It is a magical opportunity, and it would be great to have more people signed up. Please come and speak to me to arrange a date.

Thank you for your contuined support,
