Welcome to Reception Class.

Mrs Gilchrist is the class teacher and Mrs Liddell, Miss Phelan and  Mrs Johnson are the support staff.


Reception Class had great fun during Science week. They had a virtual reality experience in space where they got to look at some of the planets close up. They designed their own rover to send to Mars on the computer before making their own. They needed to think about what their rover would need to go to Mars. They finally carried out their own rocket mice experiments where they had to predict which material would travel the furthest.
