Welcome to St Mark's RC Early Years
Here you will find information regarding our Early Years unit.
"St Mark's Early Years staff are a fantastic group of teachers. I have and continue to be impressed with the level of care and commitment they show the children. Joseph loves coming to school, he comes home every day having learned something new and is happy to talk to me about his new learnings and experiences. As a parent you hope that all the love and effort you put into your child is matched and reinforced during their time at school and it is evident that this is of paramount importance to the staff, alongside educational needs. Thank you!"

Our Religious Education theme for this term is “Welcome” where we will be recognising religious signs and symbols used in Baptism and children will be able to talk about their own experiences and feelings of being welcomed and how they can make others feel welcome.
This week we have joined the rest of the school in learning about Judaism, focusing on Hanukkah, the story of oil lamp in the Temple.
