22.06.20 - this week please go to week 3's learning. Literacy is focused on little red riding hood. Maths is about how we measure time. This week there is also a PSHE session each day.  Don't forget to add anything you complete to your tapestry. smiley

The children in these classes are in the Reception Year of the Early Years Foundation Stage which builds on the experiences they had in nursery.

Badgers, Rabbits and Hedgehogs will be adding regular updates about their learning to this page. Enjoy!

On Wednesday the police came to visit us, we had a great time learning all about their job.

We planted seeds to support our learning on the tiny seed. Look at our plants grow!

Reception – NSPCC Event

As our sponsor event for the NSPCC we took part in a giant conga around the school.

Badgers, Rabbits and Hedgehogs joined in a giant conga line. We started in the playground visiting the EYFS garden, the MUGA and our forest area. We continued upstairs visiting some of the classes and finished in the hall with a dance festival! Every class performed a dance of their choice in front of their peers and we finally had a whole year group dance.

The children absolute loved this opportunity to help ‘Buddy’ help other children!

We were so lucky to have a visitor come in to see us on Friday.


We got to meet and stroke a bunny! What a lovely experience.


We spoke about what rabbits eat, how they feel and if we have seen them before.



Hedgehogs have really been enjoying our trips to the library!


Don't forget to bring your book back each week if you want to be able to take out a new book.

Happy new year!

Wow! We have been blown away by how the children have come back to school this week. They are putting all their effort into their work and showing us their very best behaviour.
We have had a bit of a recap week and made sure we are strong on some skills we learnt last half term.
We have all been so excited to start our new theme of dinosaurs.





Picnic and play!


Thank you to everyone who came and made it such an amazing afternoon. The children really enjoyed having you here to eat with them and join in with their play.

We hope you enjoyed it as much as we all did.



We've had a visit from Goldilocks!!

Wow! our first cycle of curiosity has come to an end this week.

Over the last three weeks the classes have taken turns to participate in outdoor learning, science and computing activities.


In science we learnt the different parts of our body. We then drew round a friend and labelled their body. Finally we drew a picture of our faces, making sure we remembered all the features on our face.


In outdoor learning we made salt dough faces on the trees using natural materials for the features. We then tended to the saplings by giving them fresh soil.


In computing we have explored how to effectively use bee bots and remote control cars, making sure they do what we want them to.
