Hello parents and children,
We hope you are enjoying the snow, here are some actvities for you to try at home.
- Can children please practise writing the letters ‘o’ and ‘u’, and think of anything that begins with an ‘o’ or ‘u’ and draw and label some pictures of things you can find.
- You can draw, paint or collage a snowy picture or something that you have done or could make in the snow.
- We will be learning about 2D shapes over the next few days so the children could find any shapes in their houses e.g. a clock is a circle, or a picture frame is a rectangle.
Thank you and hopefully see you all back in school tomorrow.
A huge thank you to all the adults’, Parents’ and Carers’ who helped create such a brilliant World Book Day. The costumes were incredible! A fun day was had by all.
Congratulations to Mrs Kings (class 6) a.k.a. Mary Poppins, who won the vote for best staff costume!
A big thank you to all the children too; you looked fantastic.
Enjoy Readathon, if you are taking part and I look forward to hearing about how many books you’ve read and how much money you have raised to help the Children’s Charities CLIC Sargent, which provides vital support to children and young people with Cancer and their families and Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, which helps seriously ill and disabled children.

We have been very busy over the last few weeks doing lots of work on our topic ‘Food and Growth’, have a look at some of the activities we have been taking part in.
We got a bit busy messy making Gingerbread Men
but the end results were fantastic!
The following week we read ‘The Little Red Hen’ and decided to have a go at making bread like they do in the story.
First we sieved flour, yeast and salt into a bowl,
next we added some warm water,
then we mixed the ingredients together.
Then we all enjoyed kneading the mixture to form a dough.
We then had to be patient as we waited for the dough to rise.
When it had risen we put some of the dough into a tin to make a loaf and made the rest into rolls. We were so excited to see the bread when it was finally time to come out of the oven.
The bread tasted delicious!
We also made masks and used these to act out the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’. We did some excellent performances.
Taking a bow!
This week in Reception we have had a great time learning about weddings. The children have been designing their own wedding dresses, writing wedding invitations, listening to wedding music and sharing their own experiences of weddings by bringing in photos of weddings they had attended.
The highlight of the week was our pretend wedding where all the children acted out the different roles in a wedding ceremony and the year 1 children came as wedding guests. The children all looked fantastic and had a great time!
‘the Ushers wait for the wedding guests to arrive at the church’
‘the congregation is ready’
‘‘the Groom waits for his Bride while the Best Man takes good care of the rings’
‘the Bride and her Father are ready’
‘the Bridesmaids and Pageboys are ready’
‘here comes the Bride’
‘the Vicar leads the ceremony and tells the Bride and Groom what to say’
‘the Bride and Groom exchange rings’
‘the congregation stand for a hymn’
‘the Bride and Groom sign the register’
‘the new husband and wife leave the church’
‘throwing confetti to wish the Bride and Groom good luck’
‘smiling for photographs’
To end the week we had a big party with nursery class to celebrate the royal wedding. The children made decorations and sandwiches and all had a great time!
We have lots of fun activities planned for when we return to school after the holidays. In the first week back we will be celebrating the royal wedding by taking part in lots of wedding themed activities. We would like to ask the children to bring in photos of weddings that they have attended. The children will have an opportunity to share their photos and experiences with the class. We will also have a wedding topic table so the children are welcome to bring in an item to be displayed.
Congratulations to Maryah and Cole for receiving the caring award in our end of term assembly. Both children are extremely caring to everyone in the class and help make our classroom a very happy place to be. We are very proud of them both!
