Bluebirds and Grasshoppers back at school!

It has been fantastic welcoming the children back to school. We hope you had a restful Christmas break with your families. The children enjoyed telling us about their favourite gifts!

We have carried on with our Read Write Inc programme this week and the children have started to work in their new groups. During Maths the children have worked with 2D shapes and have sorted them by the number and size of the straight edges. Our topic this term is ‘Amazing Animals’ and the children have talked about their pets and other favourite animals. They have collected data and created a class pictogram to find out which is our class’ favourite pet. Next week we will learn about dogs and read stories that they feature in. We will work on adding amounts to find a total. We also worked on the importance of hand hygiene in stopping ‘germs’ from spreading. The children covered their hands in glitter and then saw what would happen when they touched other people and things!

  2. It has been such a joy to meet the bluebirds, the grasshoppers and interact with the teaching staff in Reception. What a pleasure it is to be welcomed by the children who are so keen to 'sing and dance' and learn some Spanish once a week. Their motivation and readiness to learn is so evident that motivates and inspires, so many things that can be done there. I am sure that when this children reach Year 6 their linguistic and cultural horizons will be broader by learning a second language.
