We have had an excellent start to the new year, with lots of exciting work going on.
Reception started the week with a Dinosaur Planetarium. The children came out buzzing about their experience, talking about dinosaurs being extinct and meteorites. I am looking forward to seeing the work that they produce from this!
I love it when pupils visit me, to share their successes.
Reception pupils get very excited about writing new words. This Reception visitor is also a fantastic reader, so was able to read my Headteachers Award, that he received. Well done!
Today’s assembly started with a wonderful slide show of what our children have been up to recently, there were lots of photos of the children learning and enjoying themselves both inside and outside the classroom. As the children filed in quietly loads of parents came to join us, it was great to see them all!
The class have been reading Goldilocks and the three bears and so they sang a song based on the story and acted it out. Our blue eyed Goldilocks, Sophie, was brilliant and the singing was superb, we could hear every single word! Baby bear’s voice was particularly brilliant.
One group of children came in dressed in hi-viz jackets and hard hats. Accompanied by some slides they told us about the new building and how they had also done some measuring and building. The new cloakroom is now open. At the opening last Friday the pupils raised £91 for the new chickens.
We then had a song about putting hats and coats on before going out to play while some of the class got dressed ready for play. Again, their singing was brilliant!
Last week we also had a superhero day when the class all dressed up as superheroes. On that day they made some superhero biscuits, the perfect excuse to sing the biscuit song, gobble, gobble, munch, munch!
The alphabet song demonstrated that our children can not only sing well but now know their alphabet.
After the final prayer the children received a huge round of applause for their brilliant assembly with a special clap for baby bear.
It is wonderful to be able to share in the learning journey of each child in school. This was particularly exciting…..a first drawing! Well done!
What a bright and vibrant display, to greet us in to the new year.
Thank you to the Reception children who have shared their paintings with us. They do look fabulous….but can you spot the one which is upside down?!
Mrs Willis and I were very pleased to be able to go inside the new Reception cloakroom extension.
They are 20sq metres so will be used for readers or small group work too. They really are impressive and the work is progressing on time.
We returned from half term, to find that the building work is progressing well.
I was very excited to see that the concrete floors were in place and the brickwork is giving the extension real shape.
Three children from Mrs Willis’s class, came to visit.
They had been chosen because they had been very good all day, making fabulous progress with their reading…..especially yellow words.
Reception have begun sharing a new story, called the ‘Cave Baby’ by Julia Donaldson.
They have been inspired to work on their very own cave paintings, writing and role play.
Reception are going to share this work, by putting a display up in the main part of school.
Watch out for their sabre tooth tigers though!
Miss Noble was so impressed with Zain’s independent writing, that they both came to show me.
His recount of his trip to the park, on Saturday, was well written and gave me a very clear picture of what he did. It sounded like great fun!
What a lovely start to the afternoon….well done Zain!
