Important Days

The children have a music lesson with Mrs Kernick on a Thursday.
Celebration assembly is on Friday afternoon.
Home Learning
Phonics home learning will come home on Fridays. The new sounds that we have learnt each week will be in the phonic books for the children to practice writing. They can then stick in or draw objects that begin with each sound. Please can you send the phonic books back in book bags by Wednesday so that we can add the next new sounds.
The children will be reading with us and changing their books Mondays and Fridays. Please share your child's book with them regularly, hunting for the sounds that we have been learning and discussing the pictures and characters.
On Wednesday the children are able to borrow one of our books from the book corner to bring home and share with you. Please can you ensure that this book is returned the following Wednesday.
There are always plenty of little jobs that need doing in the Reception class.
Also we would love to have extra adults to support the children's learning through play and their reading.
Please let us know if you are able to volunteer your time whenever you have a spare hour or two!!
Thank you.
Today in forest school we had great fun looking for signs of Autumn. We collected lots of tiny leaves, feathers, flowers and pine cones and then stuck them onto a strip to make a natural object bracelet.
At the end we used the parachute and worked together to get the balls to touch the sky! Great team work reception and Pre-School.
Mrs. Beale and Mrs. Williams are really impressed with how quickly  the Reception children have settled in  this week. We had a lovely teddy bear's picnic which we shared with the pre-school children. We sang songs and had some yummy biscuits,fruit and squash!
