Reception children have been learning all about symmetry. They have made symmetrical butterflies.

Listening walk

Nursery had great  fun walking around school very quietly, so they could listen to the different sounds around them.

RE assembly – Relating

It was wonderful to see so many friends and families at our RE assembly this morning! Thank you to everyone who came – the children were very proud to show you their wonderful work. It was great to see how much each class has been learning, and their hard work was presented in creative and memorable ways.

Happy Pancake Day!

We had so much fun making (and eating!) pancakes!

Freezing Fun!

Thank you to all our friends and families who came to join in with our “Lost and Found” fun day before half term. We made penguins from 2D and 3D shapes, and enjoyed investigating ice outdoors and talking about polar wildlife. It was a lovely way to celebrate finishing our book.


Next week in Early Years!

Here are some of the activities we will be enjoying next week in Nursery and Reception:

  • Discovering a mystery map of a jungle, and talking about what we know about jungles, and what we would like to find out.
  • Sharing news from our week off, and listening carefully to one another.
  • Talking about Shrove Tuesday, making pancakes together and playing pancake-related games!
  • Learning about Ash Wednesday and talking about the start of Lent. Reception will be joining the school at a service in the church.
  • Making and talking about a large collage of jungle-themed patterns and textures.
  • Enjoying world book day by talking about our favourite books and sharing why we like them.
  • Playing lots of number recognition games, indoors and outside.

In Phonics, Reception will be practicing letters, sounds and words learnt so far, and learning a new alphabet song.

Nursery will be developing listening skills through games, and learning about s,a,t,p,i and n.
