What a busy week!


We really enjoyed having some of our parents and carers come to school for lunch on Thursday.  We hope you enjoyed the lunch and seeing how independent your children  are. 


Today we have been hula hooping with hoopstarz.  Sharon, our instructor, was amazing and had some great tunes for us to hula hoop to!

We showed such talent when keeping the hula hoop moving and had lots of fun.  Some of us even showed the rest of the school our moves in assembly (and that includes the teachers!).

Our first PE session!


Arj, our sports coach, came to work with us in PE today.

He was very impressed with how we got ready for PE.  We all tried really hard to take our clothes off and put our PE kits on. 

Buttons, shoe laces and buckles proved a bit tricky, but hopefully with more practise, we will be able to manage these ourselves soon!


Today in PE we blew our imaginary balloon up and stepped inside it.  As we moved around the hall in different ways, we had to make sure that nobody burst our balloon by bumping in to it .... it was a bit tricky!  We practised walking, jogging, running, skipping and sidestepping. 

Arj will be back to work with us every Wednesday.

Wow, what a fantastic first week at school we have had!


Everybody in school has said how amazing we are at ...

  • Coming into school (even coming in and going home from a different entrance!)
  • Using our imagination and having fun in our new classrooms,
  • Following all of our new routines,
  • Listening carefully to the instructions given,
  • Going to the hall for dinner,
  • Sitting quietly, listening carefully and joining in with songs in assembly.


Well done to everyone and thank you to all parents and carers for your support.

Reception staff are so proud of everyone!


Have a look at what we have been up to this week, haven't we been busy?

Welcome to our Reception blog of 2019 - 2020


Today was our first day in school. 

We might have been a bit nervous but we had a great day in our new classes.  We all explored the activities in the Reception classrooms and made new friends. 


At lunch time we were brave and went to the dinner hall, we had pizza or Italian chicken and spaghetti and then went out to play with the rest of the boys and girls from school.  Some of the photos from lunchtime are below.


Keep an eye out for our future blogs which will let you know how we are getting on in Reception.
