We have had so much fun learning new things this year and we have grown up so much! The teachers are going to miss you all. Good luck in year 1 and have a lovely summer break.

RW Class Assembly Summer 2021

RW have enjoyed performing their class assembly all about our favourite activities in Reception.

Wellbeing Week

Reception enjoyed taking part in a fun activity called Nightline as part of our schools 'Wellbeing Week.' The children wore masks and followed the ropes along a course that included moving at different levels and crawling through tunnels. The teachers were very proud of the children for taking part and trying their best.

Meet Our Reception Children

 Children worked with the artist Jack Doyle to draw and paint portraits of themselves. They are absolutely wonderful! Can you spot yourself?

Friday 11th December

Early Years have enjoyed their Reading Challenge Reward. They got to have lots of fun at the EYFS Christmas Markets. Well done to all the children who completed the challenge. What a festive, fun day we had!


The children have celebrated Diwali. They had a very busy week. They learnt a Bollywood dance with Miss Seward, made Diya's and wrote cards for their friends. 

Skipping Workshop

Reception had lots of fun learning some new skipping games! Remember to keep practising at home.


Children used the 2D shapes and hammers to make faces on the pumpkins. Later in the week, they carefully carved them and scooped out the insides. It was sticky and slimy and very exciting!

Monday 19th October

Today we went on an Autumn Walk around the school field. We were looking for signs of Autumn - can you spot some in the photographs?

Handa's Surprise by Eileen Browne

After reading the story Handa's Surprise by Eileen Browne, children tasted the fruit from the story. This included avocado, pineapple, mango, tangerine and banana. Children felt the texture and tasted the flavour of the fruit. They then described the taste of each fruit and told us their favourite.


Look at all of our lovely displays this year.

Welcome to Reception

Welcome to all of our families. It has been lovely to meet everyone and what a wonderful start to the reception year we have had. The children have been busy investigating their new environment and making lots of new friends. We have been learning how to share our new toys and how to take turns. We are very proud of how well the children are settling into their new classes. They are a credit to you all! We cannot wait to get to know your children more this year!


We hope that you enjoy a small glimpse into our first few days at ‘big’ school.
