Reception on the hunt…

The reception classes took full advantage of the green spaces around school AND Mr. Hudson’s expertise as they went off hunting minibeasts and crawly critters…

The two classes left no stone unturned as they explored the wide range of wildlife that can be found across the school’s impressive range of garden and flowerbed spaces.

Mr. Hudson was on hand to help the children find the creepiest crawliest bugs!

Reception are Back!

The children in Forest & Woodland classes had a great first week back and showed little signs of any anxiety about settling into the routines and rhythms of the school day.

The children have enjoyed finding their way back into learning habits and have explored the whole of their indoor and outdoor spaces.

Maths outside! Find that number on the floor…

We will bring you some more updates this week.

Back into the swing of things…

Dear parents/carers,

There was a palpable sense of relief as the gates opened across the school site this morning. For many of the children, this was the first day in school for over 8 weeks.

The school sounds and feels like a very happy place and any signs of anxiety seem to have evaporated during the course of the day. Mr Absolom has zipped around the school to capture a few photos of each year group in-situ!

Reception Gallery

Welcome to the Reception Blog. As we all come back to school together, we will be using this blog to keep you updated on what the children are getting up to in class.

As this is all a bit new to us, please bear with us as we experiment with ways of capturing the magic that happens each day in Woodland and Forest classes.

As a start, we have put together a small gallery of some of the work submitted by the children who have not been in school over the last few weeks.

Please remember this just a small sample of all the fantastic work that has been sent in over the past 8(!) weeks. Try to view it as a celebration of the collective effort and not become disheartened if an individual, or a particular piece of work, is not represented.
