Please encourage your children to put their uniform on by themselves. They are expected to do this themselves before and after PE.

This is to help them become independent and is part of the self care objectives in reception.


Home Learning

We have been blown away with the quality and amount of home learning coming into school. Thank you so much to all the parents for supporting your children with this. We appreciate all your help with it.

Welcome back to the new school year!

The Reception children have settled really well and are getting into the routine of full and busy days and staying at school for their dinner.

Please remember that your child needs a book bag that they bring to school and then take back home every day. If you have not bought one of these yet, please ask at the office for details of where to get them.

Please make sure your child has a bag of spare uniform on their peg in case they get wet whilst playing. They also need a bag with their wellies in and a bag with their PE kit in. Please make sure you write their name in everything too!

Early Morning Activities, which run from 8:30-8:55am every Monday to Thursday (NOT on Fridays), will be starting in Reception from Monday 23rd September. The doors will be open from 8:30am for you to come in and spend some time with your child. The door will be locked again at 8:45am.

At 8:55am parents will leave the children in the classroom, ready for the day at school. The door will also be opened at this time for any children who did not attend the session.

Please note: If your child comes to Early Morning Activities you must stay with them until 8:55am.

Thanks for all your support with helping your child to learn and grow.

Hope to see you on Monday morning!

Eid Mubarak to all of the children and their families; I hope that you have a fantastic day!  I can’t wait to hear all about it when we are back at nursery on Monday.



This week in reception the children have a fantastic opportunity. They will be taking part in a bikeability awareness course. They will be using balance bikes to learn essential bike skills. This is running over three mornings Monday – Wednesday

Make sure they have suitable footwear on and don’t forget to bring a water bottle for them.

Feeling hot hot hot!!

As the weather is getting warmer please make sure you bring a water bottle to school everyday for your child. Make sure that the bottle clearly has your childs name on it, so that it doesn’t get lost or used by another child with the same water bottle.

Summer Term

Welcome back to all the children and I hope you’ve had a lovely break.  This term we are learning about ‘Under the Sea’ and as a “wow” we visited the Sealife Centre in the first week so all of the children have experienced the wonders of nature.  Both the staff there and the general public commented on how well the children behaved, making us very proud. The children had a fabulous time and thoroughly enjoyed looking at the sea creatures.

This term we have focussed on the text ‘Barry the fish with fingers’ and the children’s work is now displayed in our book corner.  We’ve made our home corner into SpongeBob’s house as the children are very interested in SpongeBob.  This term we will be focussing on a different sea creature every fortnight.

Here are some of the photos that was taken during our visit.
