This half term we are looking at pancake day, pirates and Easter with lots of activities linked to these. Please remember to sign up for baking on a Thursday afternoon, both the children and yourself will have lots of fun! Book club is next week with different opportunities for parents to come into school so please do. Our PE sessions are on a Tuesday and Thursday so please ensure that your child has their kit and homework booklets are marked on a Friday. 

Please remember that phonics bug is available at home with a range of e - books on for you to read with your child, reading every night either an e book or their book from school would be fantastic! 

Any questions please come and see myself or Miss Stevenson. 

Wrens have been learning all about pirates! We made our own pirates and pirate ships using joining materials. We went on adventures in our pirate ships to undiscovered islands and found new animals and we found a letter in a bottle from a pirate and wrote him one back!

Pancake racing!

Hello! A big welcome back after Christmas and I hope you all had a relaxing and fun filled holiday! 

This half term the Year Ones will be looking at the topic ' London's Burning' and carrying out activities including making pictures, baking bread and researching the history of the great fire. The reception children will be focusing on  baby animals and their mothers and different traditons and celebrations from around the globe. The books that the children will cover include; Going on a Bear Hunt, Dragons in the City and Mr Wolf's Pancakes all of these provide rich vocabulary and great discussions for the children to have.

Cooking with parents will continue on a Thursday afternoon and we will be coming around with a sign up sheet the first week back.  Please do continue to read with your child every night - just five minutes will make a massive difference!

Wrens all went to the theatre to see Little Red Riding Hood! The children all joined in with the show and listened really well, they even started to use some of the language from the show in their play!

Father Christmas came to visit us! He told us to write our letters and send them to the North Pole, so we did! We all posted them to make sure they got there!

We had lots of fun at Christmas, we helped Santa to wrap the presents he had left and wrote cards and letters to our family and friends.

The children made wreathes for school with lots of different materials, they had to be careful and concentrate when making them and were very proud of their finished design!

This is one of our Co -Jo lessons! The children were learning about communication, they had to give instruction for their partner who couldnt see and then listen carefully when it was their turn!

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful 6 weeks and a big welcome to back to school!

This term the reception children will be focusing on 'All About Me' and a range of cultural celebrations which will lead us up until Christmas. The year ones will be gradually moving into the Year One activities and structure of the day which will also now include computing. Our stories this term will be themed around the topic and will include; We are all different, A huge bag of worries and The Gruffalo. 


Our reading system is called 'Phonics Bug' which you can now access online, this will give you a range of online book which you can read with your child. A username and password will be given out within the first 2 weeks so please look out for this, the children absolutely love it! In school your child will be in a reading group named after a colour and will  read at least once a week with myself and will normally also read again with another adult in the class. You will also receive a note letting you know on what day of the week your child will change their book. Alongside this Wrens class have a number of reading, maths and writing bags which will be sent home to each child on a rota, these include Bedtime Bear, Marvellous Maths and Weekend Bear - these will all come with an explanation. You and your child will also have the choice to borrow for the Wrens library book box, Miss Stevenson will be on the playground on a Monday and a Friday for you to take out and bring back your books. Please read with your child most nights if not every night - the benefits will be fantastic!


Our PE days are now on a Tuesday and a Thursday so please ensure that your child has a PE kit on those days. 


If you have any questions or comments please do come and see myself or a member of the EYFS Team.
