Our new pupils in Reception have settled in really well after trying out all the activities we have to offer (see below).
Reception welcomed 12 beautiful chicks into the world. The children were lucky enough to witness many of them hatching and have all had the opportunity to hold them.
Reception were extremely lucky to have a visit from Alfie’s pet tortoise Moby. The children had the opportunity to hold Moby if they wanted to and then we had a question and answer session.
Pupils from Reception enjoyed a short walk to The Abbey Manor Community Centre on Thursday (22nd March) for the Key Stage 1 Easter Service. Parents were invited to join pupils and staff to enjoy a collective worship filled with song and readings. Pupils wore Easter hats and bonnets that they had made previously and they all looked fantastic! A big thank you to all who attended and to Rev David Keen for leading the event.
Mums and Nannies of the reception children came and enjoyed the Mother's Day assembly hosted by Chestnut and Oak class. The children spoke beautifully and sang to their mums to let them know how much the loved them.
Oak Class have been busy making a stained glass window cross to add to our new Noah’s Ark role play area.
Enjoyed one of their first PE lessons with Mr Bourne.
This term reception children have been learning about ‘New Life’. We have welcomed over a dozen new chicks into our conservatory, watched caterpillars become butterflies in our classroom and also welcomed new born puppies. The children have learnt a lot about caring for and looking after these animals.
Oak class have been learning about the artist Arcimboldo and have produced some amazing art in the same style.
The reception children were very lucky to have Darrell Wakelam in across two days, designing and making some incredible art work with Oak class and Chestnut class.
The children used cardboard, scissors, glue, newspaper, paint and masking tape to make amazing 3D scenes from the bible story; Jonah and the Whale. They worked very hard and Mr North and Mrs Silver are very impressed with what they made. The finished pieces are now on display outside the reception classes.
Despite freezing temperatures pupils in Reception came to school dressed as their favourite character from a book. Some of the children were treated to a World Book Day themed hot lunch comprising of: Giant Insect Blood Broth with Wondercrump Worms (Meatballs in a Tomato Sauce with Spaghetti) or BFG’s Loaded Veggie Burger with Nishnobblers (Bean Bake in a Bun with Lettuce, Tomato, Cheese Slice & Spicy Wedges) and Bruce Bogtrotter (Chocolate Orange Fudge Cake with Chocolate Sauce)
Selected pupils from Reception enjoyed a Tea Party with Mrs Green
Pupils from Reception painted tractor pictures using harvest food as paintbrushes and this week they have been experimenting with mixing colours with their friends.
The children have settled in beautifully. Mr North and Mrs Silver are looking forward to a lovely year with them!
