Ice Skating


Class R were fantastic at ice skating for the first time on Thursday. The children overcame their anxiety and lots of them skated by themselves without their penguins. Matt their coach is very impressed with their perseverance.

You should be so proud of your child.

We are.

Well done Class R. 

Cooking in Class R


Cooking is a very important skill for children. They learn to name equipment, discover how to use them and use their Maths, Science and Literacy skills.

They read recipes. weigh ingredients and talk about the changes the ingredients go through during the mixing, stirring and cooking processes.

Why don't you cook something with your child. It could be cakes,soups,bread and much more.

Here are some of the cooking children have done in class.

Investigation Week in Reception 

Big Stars


The big stars worked as a team to write a list of what they thought a car needs. Then each child had to think of how to make their ideas. When they had made it we joined it together to make their car.


Great aren't they.

Little Stars


The children had to choose an instruction card. They drew what they could see then they needed to choose all the pieces of construction they needed to follow the plan. They made it then added number plates and a person.


It was a very difficult activity but great fun.

Teddy group


The teddies had to make their own car from boxes and split pins. They added number plates and some added seats and people. Then they had to talk to Miss Greyson about how they made their car.

Well done they look great.
