Chinese New Year Dragon Dance
Our reception children have really enjoyed learning about Chinese Traditions, and finished the half term with a marvellous Dragon Dance. They made their own lanterns and musical instruments and invited the whole school to watch the parade through the corridors of the school. Well done Reception!
Children's Mental Health Week
Each year, the school participates in ‘Mental Health Week’. This year, our reception children focussed on kindness and discussed what makes them happy. We decided that we would like to spread some of our happiness to the local community, so the children made ‘happiness cards’ for the residents of a local care home. The children thoroughly enjoyed making their cards and the residents of West Abbey Care Home (staff pictured below with the cards) were delighted with their delivery of happiness.
The children in reception put on an amazing show of Whoops-A-Daisy-Angel. The full production is available to all parents on Tapestry, but here are a selection of photos that show-case the children and their talents.
A big thank you to all of the parents for their support with providing fabulous costumes and helping the children to learn their lines.
Children in Need
Reception enjoyed coming to school in their nightwear for Children in Need. We discussed the work of the charity and participated in various fun activities. Thank you for your kind donations.
Malcolm the Magician
The children were delighted with Malcolm's magic tricks. He wowed us with his multiplying sweet trick and the hall was filled with roars of laughter. A lovely end to a very busy half term!
Whole Class Photo
The children are continuing to enjoy their time in school and this week we took our first whole class photo. We hope it will be appearing in the Western Gazette...smile everyone!
This week we have been exploring our surroundings, whilst on a welly walk, within the school grounds. We collected autumn themed objects, to be used for our transient art pictures for Art Week. We were really proud of the end product.
Welcome to Reception!
The children have had a fantastic start to school and we have been so impressed with how well they have settled in. We are really excited for the wonderful year ahead!
Our First Week - Settling In
We have been learning the routines of school and have enjoyed exploring our environment and making new friends.
