Early Years Numbers Day

Thank you to all of our parents who came to our numbers morning. It was lovely to see so many of our parents and children engaging with number based activities in lots of fun ways! It was to see everyone working and learning together.

Tootie Fruitie – A smoothie symphony

Children in EYFS and KS1 enjoyed a visit from Tootie Fruitie this afternoon. The children become brave explorers in a tropical musical rainforest and make their way through the huge trees and leaves to the lion family’s annual big boogie bash! Children were invited to find all the essential ingredients for a huge smoothie (the lions’ favourite drink!) and play their African djembe drums along the way.

Early Years – Fireworks, Diwali and Remembrance

This week Early Years have been learning about Bonfire Night, Diwali and Remembrance Day. We did lots of creative work including colour mixing, cutting and sticking and using rice to make rangoli patterns.

EYFS Parent and Child Reading for Pleasure

What a great end to the Autumn half term! Thank you so much to our parents who took part in our reading session. The children were so excited all day and really enjoyed sharing a story with their family member.  They can’t wait to do it again!

Reception’s exciting week

Our new children in F2 have been settling into their new class this week.  They have enjoyed a range of activities, working co-operatively together to make constructions, problem solving when joining shapes together to make small buildings, matching amounts to numicon when threading pasta pieces and looking at numbers using number fans.  What a great start to the year for our youngest children.

EYC – RSPCA visit

As part of our project, the EYC children had a special visit today. An RSPCA inspector came to share information about how we need to look after our pets. She also showed us how they catch animals in case they have escaped or need medical help. We loved learning about our pets!

EYC Parents reading session

Children and their parents/carers enjoyed sharing and reading books together in Early Years this morning.  The children were very excited to each receive a brand new book as part of the ‘Young Readers Programme’ led by the Literacy Trust.  This is the first event of many that will take place this year, and we hope all the children enjoy reading their books at home.

Reception create pets and homes from salt dough

In Reception, we have been working on the book Peculiar Pets and we have been creating pets out of salt dough. We wrote down the recipe and planned our next step for how we were going to make a nice place for our pets. We went on to build our animal beds, cages and fishbowls. They looked amazing!

Children’s Mental Health Week – Mental Health Support Team (MHST) Assembly

We are very excited to be joining partnership with MHST, who are funded by NHS England to support the mental wellbeing of children in both primary and secondary schools and colleges.

Today, to launch Children’s Mental Health Week, Educational Mental Health Practitioners led a whole school assembly to introduce MHST. They discussed what mental health is, how we feel, who we can talk to and ask for help and the importance of looking after our mind.

Pupils will be involved in more activities throughout the wee linked to this year’s Mental Health week theme; “LET’S CONNECT”.
