Reading books: Please find a quiet time and place to listen to your child read. Ask them questions about the story such as who are the main characters, what do you think might happen next or ask them to retell the story in their own words.

Please make a comment in your child’s reading record when you have listened to your child read. Thank you

Mini Mile: Every day the Reception children and staff join together to have a ‘run around the block’, which entails a run around the Oak and Maple buildings in the school grounds. The aim is to keep us fit and active and to promote healthy living. We have some super fast runners in Reception!

Boxes and cartons for modelling

If you have any boxes, cartons, tubes, fabric etc. that are suitable for model making please can you put them in the special bins outside our classrooms. The children have the opportunity to make models every week so we would really appreciate any recyclable materials. Thank you

If you will be available to support us at any point this year, please see the office to complete a DBS check as it is not possible for you to accompany us without one. You will also need to do an induction with Mrs Gannon. Thank you again for your amazing support.

Coats and bags

Please make sure that your child has a coat at school everyday as we  go outside in all weathers. The only bag that your child needs to bring into school at the moment is the red book bag, which can be purchased from the school office. Please do not bring in any large back packs as we do not have the space to store them. Also the children should not be bringing in any toys from home.



World Book day: Thursday 7th March: The children looked amazing in their costumes. The day was full of events including the Reception and Nursery staff acting out the story of ‘Pirates Love Underpants’ read by Mrs Kilkenny and Ms Cameron, the Year 6 pupils reading to the children and a special Book Day assembly.

Autumn 2: Stories

The children acted out the story of Room on the Broom and designed and made super broomsticks with three special features. We ended the term with a brilliant Festive Sing-along.

Autumn 1: Nursery Rhymes

The children acted out the Nursery rhymes, solved the problem about Humpty Dumpty :Was he pushed or did he fall? They also tasted scrambled eggs on toast.

As part of Little Miss Muffet and Incy Wincy spider week the children tasted cottage cheese and went on a spider hunt in the Wildlife garden.

During Row, row, row your boat week the children made 3D boats out of recyclable materials which they tested to see if they would float or sink.
