- About Us
To celebrate our fantastic behaviour this half-term all of Reception had a rock climbing experience. The children were faced with a huge climbing wall that reached higher than the school! We were so impressed with the children's resilience and endeavour as they attempted to scale the wall. Well done to all the children for having fantastic behaviour this term we know you will keep it up.
Last week we were very lucky to have a visit by the parents. The children dressed up as Knights or Princesses to celebrate this half-terms topic. Firstly, the children showed the parents their actions for the story Zog that we have been learning. All the boys and girls were very brave as they got on the stage to show off their actions. After that, the children were then able to access the different activities with their parents which included sword fighting, reading, shield decorating, biscuit decorating and also a banquet.
It was great to see so many parents come along and enjoy the fun filled afternoon. We will be hosting another event later in the year!
This week Reception learnt about the Hindu festival Holi. Holi is the celebration of colour and love. Holi welcomes in colourful spring after a dark winter. What better way to welcome in spring, than with a colour fun run. We got messy and had great fun running the course through clouds of powder paint.
We have had a wonderfully fantastic day today in Reception celebrating World Book day.
Firstly, we would just like to say a great big thank you for the incredible effort that had been put in to the children's costumes. In particular, well done to Imogen, Harry and Paddy who won a prize for their amazing outfits.
This afternoon we have enjoyed celebrating World Book day with a lovely story time in the hall. We had the bean bags out, as well as our favourite Julia Donaldson books. It was time to take some well earned time out and settle down with a good book.
Following our story time we were feeling very hungry so we knew it was time for our picnic. The food was devoured as we sat and listened to more Julia Donaldson stories. In fact, Cameron was so enthusiastic with his story telling that we were fortunate enough for him to read a story to the rest of Reception.
Thank you again for all your support. We hope the joy of books has been sent home with the children.
It has been a lovely first day back to school. The children have settled back into routine and raring to go with lots of new learning. We have dropped some small hints to the children about our new topic to see if they can guess what it is. For example, Lilly decorated her very own shield. What could the topic be?
Finally, the topic was revealed as Alex Knight sent a letter to the children asking for help! He didn't know what material to use for his suit of armour. We tested some different pieces of materials to see what would be best to fight the dragons. What do you think? The options were bubble wrap, cotton, wood or metal.
