Reception children and their families were asked to design and build boats for homework – they created some amazing vessels! Yellow Class decided to put theirs in the pond to see if they would float … they did!
Reception children love to write! They write about things they have done, like their holidays and trips to the park, and books we have read, like ‘Shark in the Park’. They write on their own, and with adults. Here are some examples of their work.
Children in Early Years have been watching with great interest and excitement as our eggs hatched … we now have nine fluffy yellow chicks!
World Book Day
In Early Years we had a great time on World Book Day. We dressed up as our favourite characters, had ‘special guest readers’ in our classes, and our teachers acted out our favourite stories – ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’ and ‘Little Rabbit Foo Foo’.
Nursery, TWOs and Reception children had fun playing and exploring in the snow, especially in our forest area!
In Reception, we have been reading ‘The Snowman’ by Raymond Briggs. For homework, the children were asked to design and make their own snowmen at home. The children and their families took this on brilliantly and had some great ideas – look what they made!

Autumn 2017 – Forest Learning

The children learn about team work, collaboration, problem solving and lots more, through a range of practical activities such as building shelters and dens, hunting for bugs and creating natural art work.
Autumn 2017 – Goldilocks and the Three Bears!
Reception classes have been reading ‘Golidlocks and the Three Bears’.
There was a break in at school! The home corners were crime scenes! Porridge on the floor … a. broken chair … golden hair in the bed … What had happened? The children investigated. They looked for clues. They searched the forest. Then they did lots of talking, drawing and writing …
