Spring 1 2020

Welcome back!  We hope you have had a very happy and peaceful festive period.  We are all excited about our learning this term.  This week we have been recapping some of our learning including letter sounds and numbers.

Nativity 2019

Wow, what a cast!  Great lines, amazing dancing, superb singing and fabulous flossing!  Please see a selection of photos of our amazing children as they perform our version of 'Everybody loves a baby'.


We have had an amazing first term in school and can not believe that we are already at Christmas.  A huge thank you to all of our families for their support over the last term.  We look forward to our next term with more exciting learning.

............................................................

 

What a great first half term we have had.  The children have settled incredibly well, learnt new routines and become confident in their new learning environments, both outside and in.  It was lovely to see so many parents at Parents' Evening. 

Here are a few of the lovely things we get up to in Early Years.  More coming soon!

Useful information

PE

PE takes place every day in Reception. We change into our PE kits on a Wednesday so please can you make sure earrings are removed and long hair is tied back. All items must be clearly labelled and PE kits need to be kept in school.

Home School Diaries

Please can you send in your child's Home School Diary every day as we may need to send you a message.

Other Equipment

Please send in a named water bottle for your child everyday as keeping hydrated is very good for young brains and good learning.  Also make sure your child has a waterproof coat in school everyday.  We try and use our outdoor area everyday even if it is a little cold, damp and blowy.
