Hello everybody, my name is Mrs McDermott and I am the class teacher in Reception class two.

The other staff in Reception are Mrs Dwyer (Class Teacher,) Miss Hartley (Class teacher,) Mrs Meakin (LSA) and Miss Wright (LSA.)


We have lots of fun in Reception and we are working really hard. 

In phonics we are concentrating on letter sounds and blending them together to read words, for example, p-a-t is pat. Please support your child with this by talking about letters in the environment, letters in their names and letters/words we see in books.

In mathematics we are focusing on recognising 2D and 3D shapes, recognising numerals, counting at set of objects and using five frames to see how many objects we have got and how many empty spaces that are left. Like this one here.




Please contact your child’s teacher Mrs McDermott via email with any concerns or questions: c.mcdermott@northcote.liverpool.sch.uk
