Blackpool Zoo Trip

On Friday 20th April, Reception went to Blackpool Zoo. The children were very excited and could not wait to get there.


 They all had a fantastic time and enjoyed every minute of the day.  As you can see to your right, the weather was on our side.

All of the staff and children would like to say a huge thank you to you all because without your help we would not have been able to enjoy this experience.


Thank You!

Understanding the World


The children were so excited when the farmer brought our eggs to school. They did not have to wait long before the chicks hatched. Sadly one of the chicks did not, so the children decided to say a prayer. 

The children were very amused when we brought the remaining chicks out of the box. The chicks were trying their hardest to escape and explore the classroom.  

Sports Relief 2018

The children really enjoyed themselves today for Sports Relief!

Look at some pictures of us all having a fantastic time on the bouncy assault course.

Safer Internet Day 2018

Today, Wednesday 7th February we celebrated 'Safer Internet Day.' The slogan this year is “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you." 

 The children listened to the story of 'Smartie the Penguin.'  It was Smartie's birthday and he really wanted a tablet for a present. He was so excited when he finally opened his last present and there it was...a shiny new tablet!

Science - Eco Day

Mindfulness Day

On Thursday 18th January we held a 'Mindfulness Day.'  The aim of the day was to provide children with techniques and strategies to help them relax and be more mindful in school and at home.  

The children had a fantastic day! 

Christmas Party Day

The children really enjoyed themselves, especially meeting Father Christmas.

Hour of Code

Last week the whole school completed the 'Hour of Code'.

During this hour, Reception learnt how to create a code on the whiteboard to make a furry alien follow our instructions when we pressed a number of directional arrows.


We had lots of fun! 

Anti-Bullying Week 2017

This week we have been focusing on Anti-bullying week. We have been learning all about how to keep ourselves safe and strategies that we can use. On Monday we wore odd socks to celebrate that we are all different and all equal. 

The Rosary

As October is the month of the Rosary we have been exploring what it means and what we should do at each point of the Rosary.

Life Cycle of a Frog

One of our parents has kindly given Reception some frogspawn from their garden pond. Once the children have witnessed the 'Life Cycle of a Frog' they will return to the pond. 

The children have been fascinated so far on how they have changed to tadpoles in a short period of time.

Watch this space as they continue to develop into frogs.

Holy Week Celebrations 

Today we enjoyed taking part in our 'EYFS Prayer Stations.'

We had an amazing time visiting each station in our key groups. We enjoyed reflecting at each station.

The children were very respectful!

World Book Day 2018

We finally held our 'World Book Day' on Friday. 

The children had an exciting day and they all looked fantastic in their costumes. 

We made our own bookmarks and attended a whole school assembly to see the winners of 'Best Outfit' and 'Best Bookmark' for each class. 

Here are some of our photographs from each class. 


Safer Internet Day 2018

All of a sudden, whilst he was happily playing his favourite game, a 'Pop-up' appeared.

Smartie asked the children: 

Should he try to fix the tablet himself?

Or should he tell his Mum and Dad?

The children had time to talk about the choices they would have made and why.

Science - Eco Day

On Monday 29th January we learnt all about 'Being Eco' and looking after our environment.  Miss Berry gave each class a cardboard box and asked everyone to fill it with anything that was plastic for the whole week. 

Today, during assembly the 'Eco Team' had collected all the boxes from the classrooms and Miss Berry showed the whole school. The children were amazed at how much we had used!

This afternoon, the Reception children walked around the back of our school to see how much litter people throw away on our streets. They could not believe how much they found in a short space of time.  Some of the children suggested that we should get in touch with the local council to see if they can provide more bins for people to use.  

Mindfulness Day

Christmas Jumper Day

Don't we all look fantastic in our Christmas Jumpers! 


African Hedgehog

Last week, we were very excited because Chloe brought her pet African Hedgehog into school.

We had to be very careful when we stroked the hedgehog because if you stroked it the wrong way its spines would fall out.

Do not worry, we all washed our hands after!
