The children are working really hard to perfect their reading skills this week. We have been doing lots of work on sounding out words and blending them together to read. Lots of our children have managed to get worded reading books! Well done reception!!
We all went to Hardwick Park today and did a Room on the Broom workshop! The children really enjoy this story and enjoyed taking part in hunting for the different characters and making a new broom! We even found the dragon which was very exciting!!!! The Reception Team are so proud of how the children listened to instructions from their adults and conducted themselves out of school! A BIG WELL DONE RECEPTION!!!!! Please take a look at the photos to see what amazing things the children have been up to!
At the Hairdressers!
6th October 2017
This week we changed our home corner role play area to a hair salon due to popular demand! The new area has proved to be very popular and the children are enjoying lots of new learning opportunities in the area, including writing appointments, using our number skills to take payments for lovely new hairstyles, communication and language skills and being imaginative. Take a look at our photos below!
Rosh Hashanah! (20th/21st September)
We had lots of fun this week celebrating Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year). We learned all about how Jewish people celebrate. We made shofars (musical horns blown to celebrate New Year) and we baked honey bread, which is traditionally eaten during Rosh Hashanah. The bread was delicious and easy to make!

We are very proud of all our children in Reception. They are settling into the new class brilliantly and following our rules. The children are having lots of fun exploring our different areas in the classroom and starting to do some AMAZING learning! Watch this space to find out what fantastic things we are all doing.
We are excited to attend our teddy bears picnic and we have decided to make our own sandwiches. We worked in small groups to decide what our favourite filling for our sandwiches would be, afterwards we followed step by step instructions to make our delicious sandwiches. Ham sandwiches and chocolate spread were definitely the favourites!
