Please note, there will be work on the remote learning page from Monday. This can be found from the tab on the home page. 
I will also be inviting the children to Teams calls every day. 
I will see you all very soon! In the meantime, stay safe! 
If you would like something to do between now and Monday, we have been looking at 3d shapes at school, so you could see how many you can find at home. You could also practise your letter formation, or practise writing words/ with phase 3 sounds. 

Have a great weekend, I will see you on Teams on Monday. 


Summer 2, Week 1

This weeks has flown by! We have had lots of fun starting our 'Superheroes' topic- making our own superheroes, playing in our superhero role play house and talking about what our super power would be if we were a superhero! The children all came back to school full of beans and ready to share the news of what they did in the half term. Some very exciting times were had! 

First 2 weeks back!

How fantastic it is to have everyone back to school! I have thoroughly enjoyed having the whole class back in and being able to see your faces for real and not through a computer screen! We have been very busy! We have spent a lot of time thinking about our emotions, focusing this week on what makes us happy. We have made our own Jars of Happiness! We have been doing lots of phonics and practising our writing. We have learnt lots about money this week and even showed what we know in our shop! All of this alongside lots of singing, dancing, painting, running and playing!

Reception Christmas Play

9th-27th November

What a busy few weeks! We have been busy revising our Phase 2 phonics sounds and practising blending them together to read CVC words. Everyone is trying so hard with this! We learnt all about Diwali- who celebrates it and how they celebrate. We made Diva lamps and drew some of our own Rangoli patterns while we talked about why it is so important. We have done lots of amazing maths work, too! One more and one less than numbers to 10 and beyond! And this week we have been finding lots of different ways of making 5. We have been practising throwing and catching in PE- that's hard work!! We also made our own maps and used them to try and direct the Beebot. All of that as well as learning through play and lots of fun! 

Week Commencing 2nd November 2020

What a busy first week back! We spent lots of time looking for and making patterns, made kites in the stormy weather, made a fantastic stormy picture and went for a walk to see evidence of our first frost! Brrr! On Wednesday we had a visitor who came and talked to us about being good friends- some great ideas from reception class and some super acting! In PE we practised our travelling and balancing skills on lots of different equipment, and the children continued this by building their own obstacle courses outside with our new construction equipment! We also spent some time reflecting on how God made us all special and unique, using the book 'Only one you'. Some excellent reading this week too! We have been learning 'h', 'b', 'f' and 'ff'.  

Week Commencing 7th September 2020

What a brilliant week! Lots more fun playing inside and outside, some phonics listening games and some excellent counting! We made lots of mud pies, went for a walk around our school, did lots of climbing on the monkey bars and even made a (pretend!) camp fire!

Settling in- 3rd-4th September

What a wonderfully busy couple of days! It has been lovely to meet all the new children and start to get to know them. We had lots of fun building, colouring, painting, climbing and running!
