2018 Autumn l Term

We have had a great start to the year, everyone has settled in very well and are enjoying all the opportunities Reception class offers. The children are doing very well with learning all the new routines, staying all day and having their lunch in the hall with the rest of the school, as well as attending school mass in Church and of course the weekly assemblies in the school hall. They have all really impressed me with their grown up attitudes.                      

 The Rainbow Fish

We have been doing lots of learning based around our class novel, The Rainbow Fish, learning about relationships and how we share and care for each other in class and at home. Our Pirate Ship Role play area has been a big hit especially walking the plank and finding treasure using their own treasure maps.


I am extremely proud of how the children have adapted very quickly to staying the full day in school. The new routine of Lunch time has been embraced and the children are choosing and enjoying the lovely dinners that are on offer including extra healthy choices from the salad bar.
