Welcome back after half term

This half term we will be looking at these topics.

Halloween & Bonfire Night.

The children will be learning about the routines and English rituals of Halloween and Bonfire Night. We will be learning a range of songs , rhymes and experiences within these events. We will continue to place a large emphasise on Numeracy within this topic and creative arts & crafts.


We continue learning about typical celebrations as we explore birthdays. Within this topic we will be backing , decorating and continue to practice writing and mark-making. We will also place focus on counting beyond 10-20 during this topic.


We begin to learn about food and where it comes from , exploring farming ,shops and home-cooking. During this topic , we explore personal preferences , likes and dislikes of ourselves and others. We learn about English food traditions and typical celebration food customs.


The children will be learning about Christmas and traditional Christian traditions. We will be learning about the Nativity as a role-play this story in the classroom. the children will be taking part in our Christmas whole school production of Bethlehem the Musical. The Children will be learning the songs from the show with reception and perform at the term.

Children will be dressing up as sheep for the production. If possible, the children will need a plain white t-shirt and black leggings for their role. They will be making their own sheep headdress within school.




Things to remember!

  • Children need to be left at the door of Nursery classroom, starting now, to encourage independence!
  • All children need to have PE kit for Tuesday & Wednesday mornings – no earrings -bags and clothes need to be named .
  • All children should be wearing a red school jumper/uniform and book bag when they attend nursery, this encourage unity within the school ready for Reception.
  • Children are now learning to read their names and write the first letter of their name- If possible , please encourage this at home!

Thank you,

New Nursery & Reception Outdoor Area

After around two years of planning we finally have our new Outdoor Area for Reception and Nursery children. We have created areas for play and learning which include a dry river bed and water feature, a workshop, an outdoor kitchen, sandpit and even a Hobbit Hole! Cool Canvas who designed and built the area for us have made a video of the build to show you how it grew.
