Reception 2021 - 2022

Mrs Oldham

Welcome to our Reception class page smiley


In Reception we have lots of fun with our learning! We offer personalised and unique learning experiences which enhance the children's imaginations and develop their creativity. Our structured timetable enables all children to reach their full potential by being exposed to engaging stimulus throughout and ensures our children enjoy their learning. We believe all children should feel safe and valued allowing them to express themselves fully and show off their amazing personalities. We structure our learning through topics such as Space, Rainforests and Jungles, Farm, Superheroes, and Minibeasts, which provides a rounded curriculum for the children. In addition to this, children are surrounded by books and are therefore encouraged to enjoy reading and story telling right from an early age.

As a key part of the Early Years Unit here at St Mary's, we work closely with the Nursery class which helps to ease the transition to Reception when the time comes and to share unique experiences relating to our topics. 

Our Reception class is a very exciting and engaging place to be! You can find out more information and see what we have been getting up to on our class pages or the EYFS section of the website.

The staff members in Reception are:


Mrs Oldham EYFS Leader and Reception Class Teacher


My name is Mrs. Oldham and I am the reception class teacher and EYFS Leader which I absolutely love. Working with the little members of our school brings about such awe and wonder to each day, every day is different! My favourite part about being in EYFS is having the freedom to be outdoors in all weathers, exploring in the water and sand and making delicious creations in the mud kitchen! I love getting messy and seeing what wonderful creations we can come up with together!

Outside of school, I am a mummy to my little boy Oliver and my little girl Thea. I am married to Mr. Olham and enjoy being outdoors with my family.
Mrs Rowley: EYFS Cover Teaching Assistant and Reception Class Teaching Assistant
