New topic!

Welcome back to school from the reception team! We hope that you have all managed to have a good rest and that the children are raring to learn!

This half term we are focusing on our new theme of ‘Growing’. We will be reading lots of fiction and non-fiction books, planting lots of seeds and hopefully tasting some of the results! This week we have talked about what we know about how plants grow and will be building on this knowledge throughout the weeks.

If there is anyone out there with knowledge and expertise/work in this area we would love to hear from you particularly if you were able to come and talk to the children about what you do.

Thank you for all your support.

Easter activities!

We have spent the day today doing a carousel of activities for Easter. We wrote Easter cards, made the covers, made Easter baskets and made Easter biscuits! They were delicious! We also had a really interesting assembly from the Hampshire and Isle of Wight air ambulance. The children listened so well and were really engaged with what they had to tell us about how to use the ambulance service in and emergency. Good listening!

We wish you all a really lovely Easter break and look forward to seeing you all rested and ready for learning when you return!
