Pluto (Reception)

Reception Class- Pluto 


At St Mary’s we offer a secure foundation through learning and development opportunities which are planned around the needs and interest of each individual child. We work in collaboration with parents or with carers to ensure that every child is at the center of the working partnership.

Autumn Term 1

At St Mary’s our topics can change weekly, depending on children’s interests and their next steps. Floor book plans will be added when we start a new theme.

Phonics will be taught from week 2. Phonics will take place every day. Please see below for the Autumn Term planner.
