We’ve had another fun filled week in reception.
We asked our children a rather big question; “Why is our world special?” we got some brilliant answers. They recognised that there are lots of different countries and in those different countries there are lots of different people who speak different languages and eat different food, we have some budding explorers who want to travel far and wide and one who even wants to go into space! Brilliant!
We continue to practise our sounds and try to put them into practise in our writing.
This week, we were lucky enough to have some willing volunteers come to school to help us plant some new tress into our Eco area, of course reception went along to help dig, water and bed in (stomp!) the new fruit trees, we even spotted some fruit budding!
Our book focus for next week will be The Train Ride by June Crebbin.
We continue to enjoy the Balanceability training and are pleased to announce that we have had our first person successfully move from the balance bikes to a pedal bike! Well Done Reilly, we are super proud of you!
Nursery have been very busy these last couple of weeks…
Last week, all of the children took part in the race for life, and completed the course very well considering the blistering weather conditions. They all had great fun, and some of the children went round twice! All of the children received a wonderful medal each for taking part. As a whole the school we raised around £700.
Wednesday last week, we had our water fight which was very cooling! All the children had great fun. Not sure who had more fun, the pupils or the teachers? Thank you very much to Sophia’s and Josh’s mum for bring in their paddling pool for us to use that day.
Last Friday that children had a surprise visit from a policeman and police lady. The children really enjoyed asking them questions and sitting in the police car (photos already on school website).
This week the morning children were lucky enough to go on their school trip to Cotswold Wildlife Park. We all really enjoyed our day, the children all behaved very well and liked seeing the different animals and going on the train.
We hope next week trip with the afternoon children will go just as well!

This week, as part of Arts week, all the children in Year 4 had the opportunity to visit the Carriage Works where they experienced the interactive performance of ‘The Midas Company’ – a new version of the myth ‘King Midas’.
It was performed by 40 students from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London and was an amazing opportunity for the children to become involved in immersive theatre. They had a fantastic time!
