The children loved having their parents and carers with them for lunch!
Thank you to all the parents and carers who joined the nursery children in their classroom for a special independent learning time.

We celebrated Remembrance Day 2018. We watched the 'Poppy Story' and talked about the brave soldiers who fought for our country.
We then got creative and made poppies using a variety of media.
This has made a lovely display.
Lest we forget.
We held our first 'Parent Literacy Project' session in October.
The theme during this session was the 'Reading Carousel Challenges'.
Activities included: Reading a book with sounds, re-telling a story to an adult, reading in a comfy chair, reading whilst having a snack and listening to someone else read.
We set a timer and had to complete all the activities in the time given.
The children enjoyed their reading challenges and working with their grown-up from home.
Thank you to those parents and carers who joined us for the session. We look forward to the next session!
Nursery and Reception took part in 'National Poetry Day', as part of a whole school celebration.
Nursery performed the poem "Zoom! Zoom!", to link with their space topic.
Reception performed the poem "Everybody Has a Name", as we have been practising reading and writing our names and learning about our identity and respect for others.
We were a little nervous at first, but once we were up on the stage, we found our confident voices.
Well done everyone!
The Bug Lady came to visit us in school! She brought lots of different minibeasts for us to explore, including; stick insects, snails and cockroaches!
We looked carefully at each minibeast and learnt some interesting facts.
We also got to feel and hold some of the minibeasts and some children even had a stick insect crawl up their leg!
We all had great fun and enjoyed looking back at our pictures.
We went on a Minibeast Hunt to see what creepy crawlies we could find around our school grounds.
We spotted a ladybird, a spider, a beetle, some flies, some snails and a worm!
We then came back to the classroom and drew pictures of the minibeasts we had found.
We went on a trip to 'Blue Planet Aquarium'. We had a fantastic time! We explored all the different zones and saw lots of different types of sea life.
We got to stroke a star fish, watch the divers feed the sting rays and even got up close and personal with our toothy friends! Sharks!!
What a wonderful day!

We looked after them for the day and made sure they didn't escape!
It was interesting to look at all the different colours and patterns on the snakes and to watch how they moved around.
Thank you to 'Wet Pets & Reptiles' for giving the snakes to us for the day.
Miss Wood came to read with all the Reception children today. She read the story 'We Three Kings'. The children spotted that the story was very similar to the nativity story they had performed for their parents and carers.

October was Black History Month. It was the 27th year of celebrating the contributions that African-Caribbean people have made to British society and culture.
Class RH decided to learn about Mo Farah. We read the book 'Ready, Steady, Mo' and talked about the hard work and dedication Mo Farah has put into his running. We tried running around the hall as fast as possible for 5 minutes, without stopping. We found this very tiring! We talked about the key word 'stamina'. We then continued to improve our stamina, in running races, cheering each other on.
We even had a go at doing the 'MoBot!'
The children had a great time showing their parents and carers around their classroom.
We did lots of different craft activities that matched our topic on 'Space'.
We were able to show our adults all what we have been learning this half term.
Thank you to all those adults who joined in with us! :)
During the Spring term we had the chance to look after some chicken eggs. We watched them carefully in the incubator for a few days until we started to see little cracks in the shells. When we came back into school in the morning we found that 6 chicks had hatched over night. We began to look after these chicks, feeding them and cleaning them. Then, we were lucky enough to see 2 more chicks hatch live during the day. The children were all very excited! We each took a turn to hold or stroke the chicks and watched them run around the classroom. 'Chicken Run' was attempted by some cheeky chicks but luckily non escaped!
When the farmer came to pick them up he said we had done a fantastic job looking after them.
Well done Reception!
