Welcome to Reception
Well done to all of our new children for making an excellent start to the school year; you are settling in really well. Thank you to all the parents and carers for all your support over the last week. All our children are now in school full time.
P.E will take place on a Monday and Write Dance on a Tuesday. Please make sure that your child has their full P.E kit in school on these days.
Can all parents and carers please make sure that all clothing including P.E kits and shoes are named.
If the children would like milk the cost is 50p per week to come into school on a Friday in a named envelope.

Well Done Hayden!
Hayden won 'Star of the Week' for his fantastic behaviour and footballing talent. He brought his 'Jolly Olly' trophey into class to show us.
Tea with Santa
The children had a wonderful time at our 'Tea with Santa' event last Friday. They had tea in school then went to visit Santa in his grotto, where he had presents for everyone! After the children had seen Santa they played lots of lovely party games in the hall.
A big thank you to FOSPs for organising this event and to our parents and carers for supporting it!
Well done to all of the great readers in Reception who have received a certificate for reading regularly at home and having their reading record signed by a grown up each week!
A special well done to William who has received his bronze certificate this week!
Wow! Today, our Reception children were really excited when Mrs Carter, a local farmer, came to visit them in class.
Mrs Carter talked about what it is like to be a farmer; the early morning starts, working hard outside sometimes in difficult weather conditions and looking after sick animals. Mrs Carter explained to the children that during winter the chickens do not lay eggs, instead all the goodness from their food goes into making their feathers to help keep them warm.
Caleb asked a very good question.. 'Where do you put the animals when it is so cold?'
Mrs Carter explained that they build pens to keep the animals warm and they give them lots of hay to snuggle into!
The children were given the opportunity to look at and to smell some hay and some chicken and sheep food to get an idea of what some of the animals eat.
Ryley told us that sometimes when he goes on holiday, they go for their breakfast at a local farm and eat the eggs that the chickens have laid for their breakfast!
Mrs Carter has invited the class to visit her farm later in the spring when it gets a bit warmer!
Thank you Mrs Carter!
