When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney!

Reception held real vegetables and they were supported to name them and describe them. They said which vegetables they liked to eat. Then the children drew the vegetables using oil pastels. Also Reception listened to the story Olivers Vegetables. They learnt about Farming and watched videos of tractors and combine harvesters. The children took part in a class discussion about harvesting vegetables. They sang the ’Underground vegetables’ song. Then Reception had the chance to dig up real vegetables in a tray full of compost in the classroom.

After listening to the story of The Little Red Hen, Reception made bread. The children learnt the names of the ingredients and the equipment used. They helped with measuring, pouring, and mixing. Then each child kneaded their piece of dough and shaped it into a shape of their choice. The dough was left to rise and then baked. Finally, Reception took their own bread home to share with their family.

All about numbers 2, 3 and 4!

Congratulations to this week's Reader of the Week. Well done!

After listening to the story of Dirty Bertie by David Roberts, Reception have been thinking about ways to keep clean, how to look after our teeth and how to look after a baby.

Reception and Nursery enjoyed their Zoom with the dentist this week! The children had a chance to talk about ways to look after their teeth- including brushing twice a day and drinking water rather than juice between meals.



Congratulations to this week's Reader of the Week! Well done!


Lots of performing this week! Retelling the Owl Babies story, singing for our friends and dancing on the stage!

Reception listened to the story ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell and Patrick Benson. Then the children created their own Owl babies picture by using sponges to paint the   bodies. After that they added further details by cutting and sticking branches and leaves, and painting and sticking the eyes and beak.

Amazing reading! Thank you to all the parents for reading at home and signing their children's reading records.

Congratulations to our Reader of the week! Thank you to all the parents for reading at home with your children and signing their Reading Record book. Please remember to keep the books in the special plastic reading bag, and bring the books in every Friday. 


Reception were busy exploring their garden and playground this week. The children practised using words such as bamboo leaves, woods, pond, goldfish, nest, bird box and spider’s web. They had a go at making some observational drawings.

Reception made paper doll collages as part of 'Ourselves' topic

The children have had fun exploring the resources and playing with their friends!
