Partner School

Our Core Values - Trust, Courage, Forgiveness, Truthfulness, Generosity, Respect, Responsibility.

We have been learning about our local area, to support our learning and understanding of the village our school is in - and what a village is, we went for a walk to our local library. We used a map to help us find the right route before we went! When at the library, we met Justine - the librarian, she helped us to take out a selection of special books. We were able to take them back to school and share them together! 

Let's Celebrate!

We are exploring celebrations. We have read stories and watched videos about the celebration of Diwali. We listened to the story of Rama and Sita and used shadow puppets to re-tell the story. We have also made our own Diya lamps from salt dough, which we then painted with lots of carefully selected bright colours. We spoke about fireworks as they are both part of the Diwali celebrations and it was also Bonfire Night. We spoke about fire safety and discussed which people help us when there are dangerous fires. Can you spot the fireman in our photos?

Can you catch me reading?

Over October half term, we were asked to find the strangest and wackiest place to read a book. We’ve had some great places sent to us, all as crazy as the next! Which one is your favourite and where would you go for some quiet reading time?

Our first visit to church

Reception had their first visit to Holy Trinity church. We listened to Father Ian tell us about this very special place and we were able to explore the surroundings. Reception were able to ask lots of questions about everything they had seen and heard. 

 

Lunch with Our Buddies

To settle into school life, we have been having lunch with our buddies! We have enjoyed having a chat at lunchtime and getting to know the rules and routines in the school hall. It was a fantastic experience for all!

Our Buddies

This year, we have introduced a buddy system. Before the summer holidays, children further up school wrote some lovely letters which were then posted to the new Reception children. During our first week of school, our buddies came to visit us! They read us a lovely story and joined in with a song! It was very fun :) 

Our First Week

Reception have had a wonderful time settling into our new environment. Have a look what we got up to during our first week!

Transition Day 2022

On Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th July our new Reception class (2022-2023) came to visit us to explore their new environment and to meet their new class mates. They also met their new teachers, Miss Ingham and Miss Tetley. The class have been split in half and visited us for two sessions. 

 

On Tuesday, both groups had lots of fun making pancakes, pizza and cutting out shapes in our play doh area, getting messing at our foamy farm, painting some beautiful pictures and also making some very stylish gingerbread people in the craft areas. On Wednesday we explored our outdoor provision getting gunky in the slime with our dinos, had a spot of tea in the mud kitchen and opened up our very own ice-cream palour! 

 

We ended both sessions with a snack, a drink of milk and a story. We had a fabulous two days with the new starters and are now really excited for September! Why don't you take a look at some pictures which show our adventures?
