Welcome to EYFS! 

Mrs Ternouth and Mrs Rankin are class teachers in Ladybird class and Mrs Doyle works in Bumblebee class. We all love teaching reception and are passionate about learning and play in the early years. We take great pleasure in seeing your children settle into life at St Francis. The children flourish during their time with us, engaging in a range of wonderful activities each day.

Reading books need to be in school every day so we can record in Reading Records when we read with your child in school. Please ensure that your child reads as much as possible at home each week and that this is recorded in their Reading Record.  


P.E. lessons are on Mondays.  If your child wears earrings, they will need to be removed by yourself or them prior to the sessions.  Children are unable to participate when wearing earrings.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to ask us,

Mrs Ternouth (EYFS lead), Mrs Rankin and Mrs Doyle
