What a busy but lovely week we have had! In our role play we have had a Christmas post office theme and have been writing letters, making envelopes and cards and have been estimating which presents are the heaviest and lightest. In PE, we have been thinking about moving over, under and through. Some pictures are below.

We have also been putting Christmas baubles into size order and sorting christmas decorations. To top it all, we had a lovely christmas lunch complete with crackers!

Next week will be just as busy I suspect. We have a christmas panto and school Nativity to watch, as well as lots of christmassy maths and word building.

Admin, Reception

We have had a great first week back at school – learning the routines of school and making new friends. Thank you so much for bearing with us whilst we tried to make the drop off and pick up arrangements work. Drop off and pick up times will remain the same next week.

This week we will be learning all about The Little Red Hen – learning the story, acting it out, and using a programmable toy to move to the different characters.

As you may have read in the newsletter, we are intending to hold a welcome service for children in Year R this Friday, 2nd October at 9:45am. Further details will be given early next week. This will be a short service, when each child will be given a prayer book to welcome them into our school family.

Have a lovely weekend. I look forward to seeing you all again on Monday.


Good morning! Here are activities for today.

I will continue with activities for the rest of the week, so do please carry on doing them. Also if you could carry on with words and reading over the holidays that would be fantastic – it really does make a difference.

Thank you for the gift vouchers that you kindly gave us all – we shall certainly enjoy a lovely treat!


I hope that you all had a lovely weekend in the sunshine.

This is sadly the last week that I will see the children before we break up for the Summer holidays.

I have absolutely loved teaching your children this year – it’s such a shame that it was cut short.

I realise that you may be anxious about next year so have made a transition sheet which is attached, to try to help your child to prepare for next year.

Thank you for a lovely year everyone and enjoy your Summer Holidays. xxx

Here are some activities for tomorrow.


Good morning everyone. I hope that you had a lovely weekend.

This week we are doing lots of work all about pirates.

On Wednesday and Thursday we will have a Pirate Day when you may come to school dressed as a pirate. Please do not bring any accessories such as swords or cutlasses! Do not worry if you have not got a costume – a plain t shirt and shorts will be fine.

This week is also Arts Week and our chosen area is the Carribean.

I attach some ideas below – pick and choose what you like during the week. You can also do some pirate arts and crafts too if you like.

Have fun!!
