Curriculum Information

  Key Information
Reading Books In Reception school reading books are changed weekly. Your child will be allocated a book change day, which you will be notified of in the Autumn Term. If there is no comment in your child's Reading Record we will assume you have not had a chance to read with your child.
Library Books On Wednesdays all children have the opportunity to go to the school library to choose one book to take home.  Please ensure that your child brings their library book and book bag to school on this day. Library books do not need to be recorded in your child's Reading Record.
P.E. Day Our P.E. day is Tuesday Afternoon. P.E. kits should be kept in school at all times. We will send them home over the school holidays. Long hair needs to be tied back and earrings are not allowed to be worn in shool at any time. It would be helpful if girls could have a pair of white ankle socks in their PE bag for the days they come to school wearing tights.

World Book Day

World Book Day 1

Don't wobble!

In PE we are learning how to balance. We have been using our arms to steady ourselves and focusing on one spot to help us not to wobble.

Capacity

In Maths we have been learning all about capacity. We enjoyed exploring capacity with water and sand. We filled containers to different levels and told our friends whether our containers were full, nearly full, half full, nearly empty or empty. 

Picture 1 "My jug is nearly empty" Leo
Picture 2 "Mine is nearly to the top. It is nearly full" Una

18th December - Science WOW Day - Ice Experiment

 

The little scientists in Beech Class investigated which material would melt ice the fastest - rock salt, table salt, sugar or warm water. They put the different materials on the ice cubes and waited to see which would melt the ice fastest and reveal the hidden toy inside the ice. They recorded their predictions and recorded the changes at different time intervals. 

Hannah told me "I think the warm water will melt the ice because it's hot". 

After the experiment Lucas said "I was right, the warm water made the ice go away".

On Eagle's Wings

Christian song written by Michael Joncas

Here I am Lord with lyrics

Here I am Lord I, the Lord of sea and sky, I have heard My people cry. All who dwell in dark and sin, My hand will save. I who made the stars of night, I will make their darkness bright. Who will bear My light to them? Whom shall I send?

This is my body, broken for you...

This is my body, broken for you, bringing you wholeness, making you free, take it and eat it, and when you do, do it in love for me. This is my blood poured out for you, bringing forgiveness, making you free. Take it and drink it, and when you do, do it in love for me.
