Fantastic Week!

The children have really enjoyed their first full week in school. They have been adapting so well to our routines as well as following our classroom rules whilst learning independently.

Our story focus this week has been The Gruffalo.

We followed a trail of footprints which led us to the book which was left by who we thought was the Gruffalo! The children have been retelling the story by drawing pictures, acting out the story using props as well as painting scenes from the story.

In Maths we have been practising recognising numbers 1-5 and then counting objects to match the numerals. Some children have even been able to count up to 10!


In phonics we have been listening to sounds and copying them by making the noises with our mouths as well as on our bodies. We also tried to copy patterns.

Please encourage the children to continue counting at home particularly with food items when shopping.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Our First Week in School!

We’d like to wish you all a very warm welcome to St Peter’s School.

All the children have settled into school life so well in the first few days of starting Reception. They have got stuck in with counting, drawing self portraits, mixing colours, building with the blocks and practising to write their names among many other things.


In your child’s bag you will find the newsletter for this week. Please have a look at it as it will contain lots of important messages.

Remember you are more than welcome to come and speak to the teachers at the gate before and after school about any questions you may have.

We hope you have a restful weekend with your children ready for them to start full time on Monday!
