Trip to Cockfield's Farm - March 2018

On Tuesday 13th March all of the Reception children went on their school trip to Cockfield's Farm. We all got on a double decker coach and made the journey to the farm. When we arrived we split into our classes. Class RM went on the animal experience tour. We met and handled animals such as a bearded dragon, a chameleon, a gecko, tortoises and a boa constrictor! We then met and fed the farm animals, there were Chickens, Donkeys, Meerkats, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Llama's, Goats, Pigs, a Cow, Sheep, Alpaca's, Ducks and Geese. Class RG went on a forest school experience where they went on a walk to retell the story of Rosie's Walk, which is the story we are learning about at school this half term. We got very muddy and had lots of fun stomping through the squelchy, squerchy mud!  We then made chickens out of clay, feathers and sticks that we found in the forest schools area. We played and explored in the forest school and sang some songs and played ring games. We all met for lunch in the barn where we sat on straw bales instead of chairs! In the afternoon we swapped over the activities so all the children got to experience both. Here are some photographs of our day. Thank you Cockfield's farm we had a fabulous day!


We had a holly jolly Christmas time here at Denton West End!


Outdoor Learning

 The children in Reception learn outside each morning and afternoon. There are fun, practical activities set up for the children daily and resources are also available for the children to create their own games and learning opportunities.

Our first weeks in Reception.

 Please enjoy looking at what we have done in Reception since starting in September. We enjoyed learning in our classrooms and going for our school dinners.
