Science Week - Fixperts
We have been turned into engineers and scientists this week to solve a problem. We had to help the Three Billy Goats Gruff; they needed a new bridge to escape the troll and it needed to be strong to carry the 3 goats. We have also enjoyed retelling the story and acting it out.Thank you for all your help and support with resources and for discussing this with your children.
Maths Drop In
A very busy parent drop in. Thank you to all the parents that were able to attend. We hope you enjoyed the activities and the opportunity to catch up with the staff. Enjoy the packs and use them to explore number and maths with your child.
Some children have brought home a reading book for the first time this week. Enjoy reading with your child and read the letter within the book bag for more information. If your child has not received a reading book please continue to practise the green words, blending the sounds together to read and encouraging your child to read it independently. All children are on their own unique reading journey and all the support you can give them at this stage is so important. Thank you for your continued support.

Happy New Year

Another busy week! This week was ' National Anti-Bullying Week', so Reception have been thinking about how to be a good friend and how to treat others. We talked a lot about feelings and emotions and explored expressions to display different emotions. We have also discussed Children In Need and the importance of helpings those in need.
This week we have started to practise the 'Christmas Nativity'. The children were very excited to choose the parts that they want to play and the children who want to have a speaking part, have been allocated their lines. Further information confirming your child's part, costumes and any lines to rehearse, will be sent home very soon.
The children and staff will be working very hard over the next few weeks to put together an amazing performance that is a lovely celebration of Christmas. We are sure that you will all agree when you see the show!
This week we have been talking about our adventures on Bonfire Night and finding out about Diwali.
