Early Years Christmas Sing-a-Long

This afternoon, the children in the Early Years Foundation Stage Unit performed their Christmas Sing-a-Long for their mummies and daddies – what a wonderful performance it was!  The children had learnt Christmas songs and Carols, including ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ (all the verses) and many, many more; well done to all the children and staff, you are all stars!


The Nursery and Reception children were very excited to receive a letter from our new French friends this week. We have taken photographs of our favourite parts of our school, the children and the staff to send back to France. 190 189 188 191

Physical Development

In Nursery and Reception we have been using the large apparatus to help us with our Physical Development. We have been travelling around, over, under and through the balancing equipment. The children have also been working on their throwing and catching skills.




EYFS – Topics – Autumn term 2013

Our children are all settling in well and enjoying investigating all of the different activities available both inside and out.  They have created beautiful self-portraits which are taking pride of place in the classroom.  Attached is the topic sheet for this half term EYFS Topics Autumn Term 2013. This may change depending on the children’s particular interest.


PC Brown and his partner brought in the police dogs to show the children. He told pupils that police dogs were used to search for suspects, missing people and concealed objects. The dogs could also chase and detain people who run away from police, disarm violent criminals, and control hostile crowds. The pupils really enjoyed learning about the Police dogs. A big Thank you to PC Brown and his partner.

Banquet Day

The children dressed up as knights, princesses, kings, queens and dragons for our end of topic celebration. We cooked soup, bread and Pokerounce – a honey dessert. It was hard work cooking it on the open fire. We enjoyed the castle entertainment in the afternoon. The circle dancing was great fun but the jousting tournament seemed to be the favourite activity. What a great day!
