Our Frosty Walk

We all wrapped up warm when we went out on a winter walk. We heard the frost crunch under our feet and watched it melt on our warm hands.

Learning is fun!

We are enjoying learning to read, write and count in lots of different ways.

Chinese New Year

We have been finding out more about the Chinese culture. We all used chopsticks to eat a Chinese banquet and enjoyed watching the lion dancers.

Our Summer Trip

We had a fabulous day yesterday with the rangers from Stadt Moers park. We made dens, tree trolls and wooden necklaces. We even made a campfire, roasted marshmallows and made popcorn! Well done Reception you were all amazing!


Our Reception children are very curious as they watch their caterpillars make a chrysalis. We can’t wait to see the butterflies emerge soon!

CAFOD in Lent

One of our Reception children has been exceptionally kind. During Lent he has asked everyone he knows to put money in his own special collection box at home. He brought this into school today overflowing with coins and notes. Well done and thank you.

Valentine’s Day learning

Chinese New Year

We enjoyed learning about other cultures during Chinese New Year. We watched the lion dancers, read information books and ate a Chinese banquet with chopsticks.

Poppy Service

Autumn Walk

We all enjoyed looking for signs of Autumn today. We learned that some trees are evergreen and some are deciduous – we found out that means they drop their leaves at this time of year! We enjoyed watching sycamore leaves spin and Mr Newstead showed us an apple tree.
