We have had a busy week settling into Reception and all children have done an excellent job getting back into the school routine. Reception have welcomed some new children into the class this week and have done a great job at making them feel welcome and part of the class. What a wonderful start to the term!
A big well done to all of Reception for a fantastic Collective Worship. You all said your lines loudly and clearly and sang our song so well! You have made me very proud, it was a beautiful assembly and your last one in Reception! Well done.

Reception had their sports Stay and Play this week! It was great to see parents and children enjoy all the outdoor sport activities yesterday, like egg and spoon races, football, hula-hooping and basketball. Thank you to all the parents who came along and supported, it means a lot to the children! Please take a look at some of our photos from the morning (click on the photos to enlarge them).
Reception have enjoyed using some technology this week and explored how bee-bots work. Children discussed the instructions they wanted the bee-bot to follow, pressed the directions in then watched it move! Another great week of learning Reception, well done.
Reception took part in a very exciting event at school last week when the gymnast Steve Frew came to visit! Children got to enjoy a fun exercise session with him in the hall, where they complete start jumps, leg runners and press ups! It was a brilliant morning, here are some of our pictures from the exercise session. More photos will be up on the school blog soon!
Reception welcomed some new members to our class this week! Four lovely chicks hatched on Monday and all children have really taken care of them brilliantly. They stroke and hold the chicks carefully, thinking about their tiny little wings and feet. As a class, we have discussed their life cycle so far and are looking forward to watching how they change over the next few days.
In our new unit this half term, which is ‘Watch them Grow’ Reception have discussed lots of different plants and flowers and we have spoken about different things which plants need to grow. Children used paints to create some lovely pictures of gardens and flowers to put up on display! Well done on another excellent week of learning Reception.
Well done to all of Reception for their incredible hard work this half term. Children have produced some excellent writing, maths and art work over the last few weeks and have made so much progress during this half term. You should all be very proud, keep up the good work Reception!
