St Stephen's Catholic Primary School and Nursery, a Voluntary Academy

 Welcome to St Stephen's Class Web Page



St Stephen's Class is full of friendly, confident and lively 4-5 year old children eager to learn! 

We like to be active and enjoy learning outdoors. We love to talk about our experiences and give our thoughts and ideas. We are caring, kind and helpful and like to find ways to work together so everybody is happy!    


Summer Term 2020

Dear Parents and carers

We hope you are all ok and we are thinking of you and the children during this unprecendented time of  'home schooling'.

There are plenty of websites out there to offer advice and plans, but do trust you own instincts and don't rush, this is a huge transition for all.  Your children will be as equally disoriented as the adults around them! Remember that you are your child's first and foremost educator, you know them best!

 So a few tips we've found on the website '' that reflect our thoughts too. Please follow the link below for a easy homeschool plan:

Please continue to use the school website and Tapestry, for links to activities and suggested sites to support learing at home. Now you also have access to 'EasyPeasy', 'ActiveLearn: Bug Club' for reading and 'Teach your Monster to read' for phonics, and more! 

 For maths, follow the link below to White Rose home learning. And Father Andrew has suggested this page for us to check out too!

Plus, most importantly, continue to follow the most up to date information on the school webpage to keep everyone safe. We'd love to hear from you via school email, Tapestry, Easy Peasy, or even the post!!

Best wishes, 

The Early Years Team

Where the Wild Things Are

By Maurice Sendak

Our story book this half term!



S.T.E.M Fair

Well done to all of the children and their families for creating such varied and  exciting projects. Take a look at the projects in action!

World Book Day

Peter Pan Theme

Such great costumes from St Stephen's Class and a great day had by all. We loved sharing our favourite books and having a visit from a mum to read her favourite book!

Balance Festival

We had a brisk walk across town to Greatwood School where we took part in a festival of different activities linked with developing our sense of balance, with the aim of improving our bicycle skills. Great fun was had by all, and the children behaved extremely well on what was a very busy afternoon!
