We all took part in our nativity play 'A Little Bird Told Me'. Our costumes looked fantastic and we sang and danced so beautifully. This was a lovely way to mark the true meaning of Christmas.

We had a funky fingers party with our families. Mrs Capaldi talked to the grown ups about fine motor skills. We then had the opportunity to work with our grown ups to practise these skills in lots of exciting ways. Thank you so much to everyone who came to this event. We hope you found it useful to help you to support your child's learning at home.

This week we have been exploring the story 'Kitchen Disco' by Clare Foges. We have really enjoyed developing our vocabulary and other skills from across the curriculum by immersing ourselves in this fantastic text.

Welcome to Reception 2019-20


We are really looking forward to welcoming you all into our very special school over the coming week. We are going to have so much fun this year as you take the first steps in your St Anthony's learning journey.


This page will be regularly updated with videos, photographs and other information so please do check it regularly. Our planning and newsletter for Autumn 1 can be found using the links above.


PE will usually take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays but please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school at all times. 


We also look forward to seeing lots of you at our family learning events this half term. 

On Friday 13th September we will be holding a Tapestry information session at 3.15pm for all parents who are not familiar with using Tapestry online learning journeys. 

On Friday 4th October we will be holding a Funky Fingers family learning session from 9-10am. This will be an opportunity for you to work alongside your child to share ideas of how you can support your child's physical development at home. This is essential to ensure your children become confident writers and I know we will all have lots of fun. 


Mrs Shelton, Mrs Cecil, Mrs Cook, Mrs Corah and I are very excited to get to know you all. We will have so much fun laughing, learning and growing together. See you soon!
