Week beginning 26th October


Week beginning 19th October

This week we talked about feeling a range of different emotions.  We shared our experiences of feeling happy, sad, angry and scared.  The children enjoyed changing their faces to reflect different feelings.


Week beginning 12th October

We have been learning all about the 5 senses. The classes took part in a range of activities that required them to focus on using their senses of smell, taste, touch, hearing and sight. 

Week beginning 5th October

The children in Reception were beautifully behaved while having their individual photos taken.

Week beginning 28th September

Queens Class and Clare Class had their very first phonics session this week.  We introduced the "s" sound on the carpet and then all completed a phonics sheet which you will find in your child's phonics folder.

Week beginning 21st September

Queens  Class and Clare Class enjoyed their first PE lessons outdoors.

Week beginning 14th September

This was our first full week in Reception! The children ate their lunch together and enjoyed the beautiful September sunshine. They have been exploring the indoor and outdoor spaces, making new friends, learning to work together, taking turns and sharing. We have been doing lots of singing and storytelling during our carpet sessions and talking about different feelings.

Our welly racks are still quite empty - please remember to bring a named pair of wellies into school for your child.  If you have not yet returned your child's summer book or questionnaire, please also send these in ASAP. While the weather is still warm and sunny, it is important that all children come to school with a named sun hat and that sun cream is applied by parents/carers before the start of the school day.

Thank you for your patience at collection time at the end of the school day.  As you will understand, it is of the utmost importance that the children leave school safely.  We have made it clear to your children that they are only to exit the gate when their teacher has seen the adult who is collecting them.  Obviously, at the start of a new year this will take some time and we are grateful for your understanding.
