Sports day Monday 17th July

Our talent show Friday 16th July

We had a fantastic time at Twycross Zoo. The children loved looking at the animals and having a picnic in the sun. The were very well behaved. Well done children.

We love the outdoors

We had a surprise when we came to school on Tuesday, there were muddy footprints, tables and chairs turned over and..... a dinosaur and some eggs.

We have been investigating what happened and writing reports for Mr Ellis.


Literacy will be based around the story of the Runaway Chapati over the next two weeks. The children have created their own story maps and have been telling the story to their talk partners. We will be talking about the characters and the key events and using what we know in our writing. Thank you for encouraging your children to retell the story using their story map at home, this really helps the children in their literacy work.

Literacy Morning with Parents


We enjoyed having our parents come into school to work with us. They were very impressed when we retold the story of 'The Little Red Hen' using our Talk for Writing story map and actions. We split into our groups to do lots of literacy activities based on our food topic. We made jam sandwiches following instructions, talked about rhyming words, labelled pictures of healthy and unhealthy foods and even did some taste testing to describe different foods. 


Thank you so much to the parents who joined us for the literacy morning.

Wheels week 


This half term our topic is food. We explored the properties of 2D shapes using food. Can you spot the shapes in our picnic?

We have been learning about environments. We learnt about deserts and Miss Knight brought her pet lizard Lenny to school. We made collages of him and wrote letters to him. We learnt about the food he eats and looked after him by handling him carefully and feeding him.

We have been celebrating Chinese New Year as part of our "People and Communities" studies. We made paper dragons, lanterns, fans and cards. We watched a cooking demonstration and tasted the food. We built our own dragon and did a dragon dance.

Chinese New Year Celebrations

We went to the pet shop this week to buy a pet goldfish. We had a look at pictures of fish and voted on which fish we would like to have as a pet. We now need a name for our pet can you help us to think of a name at home?

On the 1st of December we were joined by a new member to our class, his name is Eddie the elf. Eddie will be hiding in our classroom at the beginning of each school day, it will be the children's task to find him and then describe where he has been hiding using positional language. Eddie will be checking up on the children to make sure they are behaving in the run up to Christmas. The children will be encouraged to write to Eddie about the things they have been doing at school and ask him questions which he will reply to. The children can also write letters for Eddie at home and bring them into school for him to read.

Our theme has been favourite stories by Julia Donaldson

Thank you to all of the parent who joined us for our maths morning on Wednesday. The children really enjoyed having you in the classroom and showing you how we learn maths in Reception.

On Wednesday November 23rd we went on a double decker bus to Cannock Chase to follow the Stickman trail. We saw tractors pulling trailers piled high with Christmas trees. We walked through the woods following the signs which told us what to do. We found some houses made of sticks, made a stick tower, splashed in muddy puddles, climbed on the 3 bears chairs and found Stickman and Gruffalo. Then we played in the adventure playground before coming back to school to eat our packed lunches. We had a fantastic time! 

Children in need

Wellbeing day: We made vegetable soup.

This week we have been learning about how different people celebrate special occasions. On Friday we had a bonfire night celebration; we made chocolate apples, carved a pumpkin and drank hot chocolate around a camp fire.

We have been exploring our environment and looking for signs of autumn. We created collages with the leaves we found and talked about how the leaves had changed colour.
