Christmas Jumper Day

Look how amazing our Reception children look in their Christmas jumpers! They are so excited for Christmas.

‘Bottom, the Owl’ makes a flying visit!

What an exciting morning! In Reception, children have been looking at the story of Owl Babies. They did lots of work around the story, from sequencing the story to making paper plate owls to even making 3D owls. This morning, there was a special treat for them; two ‘real’ owls came to see them. Hawkwise Falconry brought owls for the children to see. The children were extremely excited and were very keen to hold  Bottom, the owl. They listened to instructions and very carefully held the owl. The children were very brave, even the teachers had the opportunity to hold Bottom. Reception children and staff would like to thank Hawkwise Falconry for bringing these beautiful owls to visit.



RAG have been very busy doing their bit for Children in need. They have helped to raise money and brought yummy cakes from home to sell in the cake sale.

Sequencing Stories in RHS

This week the children in Reception have been learning how to sequence the events of stories. They have used the fabulous Owl Babies story to help them learn about what happens at the start, middle and end of the story. They have even had some lovely props to play with, which they have used retell the story to each other.

The children have also been learning how to count one more. They have had to count how many frogs there are on a log, and then count one more!

Funny Bones!

In Reception, RBS have been reading the story called Funny Bones. They enjoyed learning about skeletons and did lots of activities around it.
