We enjoy a curriculum that provides us with real life experiences and celebrates our culture.
Ready, Steady Go....... Reception has started!!!
The children were very excited to start their first day of school yesterday (Tuesday 12th September). They got to make lots of new friends and explore their new classrooms.
This term is all about settling in and learning the rules in their new school.
Week beginning 2nd October:
We have been discussing the change in seasons. We went on a nature walk around the school and we noticed how the
leaves have changed colour and have fallen from the trees. We were comparing the shape and size of the leaves.
Thank you to all the parents who attended the workshop on Friday 13th October. We hope you found it useful.
We have attached the PowerPoint and the handwriting sheets below.
We will be celebrating Diwali on Wednesday 18th October. Your child can come to school dressed in their party clothes.
Please be mindful of the cold weather.
