  • April 2023

    Reception have been busy bees.

    Last half term we enjoyed learning about the Easter story, spotting signs of new life in our outside area and going on egg hunts. It was lovely coming back to school and sharing what the children had been up to over the Easter break.

    As the weather brightens, we will be enjoying plenty of time outside. Mrs Gore has been very busy making a great gravel area for the diggers which has proven popular.

    Here are a few pictures of the children enjoying both inside and outside activities.


  • People Who Help Us and Chinese New Year

    The children in reception have been enjoying our ‘People Who Help Us’ topic. There has been plenty of role play action. 


    This week we also discussed Chinese New Year celebrations and practised using chop sticks with noodles and practised Chinese letters and numbers. 

  • December 2022

    Reception have had lots of fun in the snow this week! It is so exciting and a great educational opportunity playing out in the snow/ice. As the week has progressed and with the weather remaining bitterly cold, we have remained a little more indoors….there are only so many pairs of soggy socks we can change!

    Wren have been on a snowy woodland walk, in our wild area, and made an amazing snowman together. Finch had lots of fun outside with Mrs Williams; making snowballs and snow angels. Later on in the week some children experimented by painting the snow too.

    Look at the photos.

  • And we’re off!

    Our Reception children have settled into the routines of school life very well!
    As you can see we have been busy exploring all of the new toys and learning our new rules and routines. Here are a few photos for you to enjoy.
    We will ensure that all children (permission allowing) have photos published over the course of the year.
