A huge welcome to the new Reception class for the years 2019/2020. We can’t wait to greet you at the door and follow your learning journeys! We hope you have all had a fantastic summer and feel ready to join us at Grimsargh St Michael’s Primary. 

We are going to start our new year by thinking about ourselves and our families. We will look at what makes us special and learn all about our school environment. Also, we are going to start thinking about Harvest! I wonder if you can look around your local area and what might be happening in farms and to our trees and plants. 

Parents, below is our Long Term Plan for 2019/2020 – this is a brief outline of our learning and may change as the year goes on.

We will see you very soon – Mrs Todd, Miss Begbie and Mr Fletcher 🙂
