This term our topic has been 'Space'! We have enjoyed the stories 'How to Catch a Star' and 'Whatever Next'.
Have a look at some of the fantastic writing the children did when re-writing the story of 'Whatever Next'. We are very proud!
The children in Reception enjoyed dressing up as characters from their favourite stories to mark World Book Day! We had a penguin from Lost and Found, Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Harry Potter, The Tiger who Came for Tea, a Snail and a Whale and lots more!
Throughout the day, the children enjoyed reviewing their favourite books, making book marks and of course, sharing lots and lots of stories!
Last week was Storytelling Week and what a wonderful week we had! From Bedtime Stories, 'Drop in and Read' sessions, Story in a Jar Competitions, Book Swaps, World Book Day and Shared Stories, there was a lot going on!
Thank you to everyone for the fantastic effort they put into everything- we are so proud of you!
A Wriggly Nativity!
A huge well done to our superstars in EYFS for their wonderful performances last week! Both Reception classes, alongside Nursery performed 'A Wriggly Nativity' and all the children involved were fantastic! We are so proud of you all!
Our visit to the Julia Donaldson Exhibition
Last week, the children in Reception attended the Julia Donaldson exhibition at Z-Arts in Manchester. The session began in Charlie Cook's house and soon, with a little bit of magic, the children entered the magical kingdom of the stories and characters of Julia Donaldson. We saw The Gruffalo, Zog, The Snail and The Whale, Stick Man, Room on the Broom, A Squash and a Squeeze and many many more!
Following on from this, the children learnt a song about The Gruffalo and enjoyed dancing and playing musical instruments too.
We had a wonderful day and the children were all fantastic! Well done Reception and thank you to our parent helpers!
On Friday, the children in Year 5 came to Reception to meet their buddies! Each child was paired up with a child in Reception, who they will closely look after during the year, take to Mass, read to and lots more. The children were all fantastic and we look forward to doing lots of things together!
