Enabling children to flourish and succeed

Reception Class

A very warm welcome to our parents, friends and prospective parents of St Mary's Primary School. My name is Mrs Frances Port and I am the Reception Teacher, alongside my wonderful job-share teacher, Mrs Di Musson. I began my teaching career at St Mary's in 2013 as a Newly Qualified Teacher. I taught in Year One until 2019 and then moved to Reception Class, where I have been ever since! I am really passionate about the early years and in particular children's literature. Reception Class is absolutely magical and such a unique learning experience for the children. 


Mrs Musson and I are both very proud of the Early Years environment that we have created for our children and we believe that we give children their best possible starts in their school journey. 


We do predominately use Class Dojo to communicate with parents but we will share our medium term planning and other useful documents on this class page.
