Important Information

Please ensure your child brings their book bag to school everyday. Each child's book will be changed once a week. There will be a label with this information on the front of your child's reading record.


Our aim is to read at least 3 times a week. Please sign your child's reading record every time you read.


Thursdays are the days that we do P.E. Please bring your child's P.E kit into school so they are ready for the lesson. P.E kits consist of a red t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps.


All items of clothing, shoes, P.E kits, book bags and lunch boxes should be labelled with your child's name. 


Thank you smiley

What will we be learning about in Reception?

We went on a walk down Moston Lane and compared this to Forest School. The children enjoyed making things that they had seen and then created their own senses poems.

The children loved making their own instruments and experimenting with the different sounds they could make.

We explored Forest School using our senses.

Some of our senses challenges!

Over the last 2 weeks the whole school have taken part in Creative Writing Fortnight which was based on Manchester. In Reception we have explored the world around us using our 5 senses. We introduced our 5 senses by setting up a number of challenges. This included a smell challenge, food tasting, a barefoot challenge, drawing whilst blindfolded and a listening challenge.

The Enormous Turnip

We’ve had some AMAZING independent writing this week. Some of the children even invented their own stories!

We made characters from the original story as well as our class innovated stories.

We had a special delivery this morning…

Please read our letter about World Book Day which will be held on 7th March.

RL's innovated story - The Dair. A dair is a mysterious creature that has the body of a bear and the head of a duck. Great imaginations in our class!

Gruffalo role play :)

We’ve been making some tasty treats for the Gruffalo!

Mr Campbell needed our help, reception to the rescue!

We did lots of work around the story and then created our own. RL had a baby rabbit who sailed across the sea to an island and RG had a baby squirrel who found an aeroplane and went to the beach. The children created the new settings in the construction area.

We’re going to the moon!

Baby Bear went to the moon in a box so we had to have a big box day!

The children love playing in Stick Man's tree house.

We've got some super mathematicians in reception!

We had a fantastic 'Little Rabbit Foo Foo' themed outdoor nature session with our children and parents! A scavenger hunt in the forest school area and then lots of different activities using natural materials.

This week we innovated the story and the children loved sharing all of their amazing ideas. RL had a big, brown dog as their main character and RG had a happy crocodile.

The Little Red Hen sent us lots of different types of bread this week that we could taste, sort and sell in our bakers shop. She also sent us her secret recipe so that we could make some of our own bread.

We went to visit the Little Red Hen's sister who happens to live at our school!
