Busy Bees….

We have been busy in class this week. During our Literacy lessons we have been writing sentences, making sure we remember our capital letters and full stops! In our Maths lessons we have been finding one more and one less than a given number. Today we have been using algorithms in ICT, using the Bee-bot app on the iPads.



Welcome back to school in your new Year One class. Miss Hesketh and Miss Novell have really enjoyed having you back! During our Literacy lessons we have been hunting for describing words in the book Monkey Puzzle. In our Maths lesson we’ve been investigating length using unifix and our hands.


Ready, Steady… Go!

Wow! What beautiful weather we had for Sports day; all the children tried their best and did really well. The children supported one another and offered each other encouragement. We have been preparing for the end of term and have been speaking about what we have enjoyed this year.


Changes Ahead!

Another busy week passes by!

We have grown so much in our learning throughout the year. We are all very proud of all of our achievements. We hope that you enjoy reading our School Reports.

We have been thinking about our transition into Year One and enjoyed our change over day on Thursday. We were able to meet with our new teacher and find out what’s in store for next year.

Exciting times ahead…

Zoo Mania!

We have been using our trip to Whipsnade Zoo to support our work in Literacy, Maths and Art. We painted pictures of our favourite animals and wrote a piece of descriptive writing. We placed the animals in order of size and we gathered data by asking our friends about their favourite animal; we made tally charts and transferred the information onto a bar chart. We used the wooden blocks to make our own zoo. Check out our groovy glasses!

Roooooooaaaaaaaaar! What a School! What a Trip!

What an action packed week we have had; first winning School of the Year and then the Reception trip to Whipsnade Zoo. Thank you to our helpers who came along and thank you to the children for being so well behaved.

The Award Goes To…

Apple class had a visit from Bessie’s dad; he brought in the BAFTA he won! The class made their own BAFTA’s. We have been exploring capacity; we went on a bottle hunt and recorded the amount of liquid in each bottle. We programmed the Beebots to move around the mats. We enjoyed sharing our learning journeys with our friends and writing our reports.

Lights, Camera, Action!

We hope you enjoyed our sharing assembly; we loved working as a team to come together and perform our assembly with the other Reception class. Some children from year one came to share a story with us. We have been thinking about what we couldn’t do when we started school in September and what we can do now! We have achieved so much this year! We hope you have a lovely relaxing Father’s Day!

Who’s Been Eating My Porridge?

We did some amazing independent writing about our half term holiday. Our book of the week has been ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. We have used this to support our Literacy and Maths learning. We made puppets for the characters, used rulers to measure and record their height, worked out the difference in height. We made our own story maps for the Beebot to move around whilst sequencing the story. We enjoyed acting out the story.


We did a group read of the story ‘The Moon Jet’; we amazed our teachers by writing our own adventures. We had trips to Space, Frozenland, Superhero world and many, many more. We have been focussing on time, clocks and ordering the clocks. We have enjoyed the one minute challenge area, perhaps you could think of your own challenges at home. We hope you enjoyed looking through our Learning Journeys and books; we have been very busy in Reception this year! Have a great week’s holiday!
