One Snowy Night

Welcome Back! We are very proud of the exceptional start the children have made to the Spring Term showing independence and curiosity. We began our week by introducing our winter wonderland theme and sharing the text 'One Snowy Night!'. Reception have been busy learning new phonics sounds, shapes, numbers and about winter time. We have enjoyed exploring the outdoor area in particular playing in Percy the Park Keepers hut and re-enacting the story. On Tuesday we were excited to begin our new P.E. lessons with Mr Bettington.


A few reminders...

  • Please remember bookbags EVERYDAY!
  • Visit www.ruthmiskin.com for information on how to say the sounds so you can help your child with phonics at home.


Have a lovely weekend!

Our Christmas Party!

Fun, fun, fun in Reception!

What a busy and exciting end to our first term in Reception! The children have continued  to learn and play exploring our Christmas theme and have developed their physical skills in our new larger outdoor area.

We are very proud of the children' performance 'Miracle in Town' and how well they all sang and remembered their words. We had so much fun at our Christmas party playing party games, dancing and eating party food.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and we look forward to an exciting Spring Term. Thank you for all your cards, gifts and good wishes.

Please remember book bags after the holidays and PE will now be on a Tuesday and Friday.


Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!

A visit from the Elf

On Monday we were amazed to find we had a new member to the class! An elf had come to visit and asked us to help him get ready for Christmas. We then helped him to build a fireplace, decorated the home corner, make Christmas cards, write letters to Santa and make toys in the construction area.


We have continued to practise our phonics every day and learn new sounds. In maths we have completed lots of challenges counting and using numbers to 20. When the rain stopped we developed our physical skills outside.


Thank you for all the costumes we are working hard practising and we are looking forward to performing for you. Tickets will be given out next week. We are looking forward to our party on Thursday 20th December. Can you please send a £1 donation and we will organise food and drinks.


Have a lovely weekend!

The Nativity

This week we were excited to find a manger and a baby in our classroom. We discovered after talking it was baby Jesus, we then read the Nativity story. This inspired us to draw, paint and build the Nativity scene and begin to think about Christmas. We have worked hard practising our play and learning new songs. We are really proud of everyone learning their lines. 


In maths we are counting, writing, reading and matching numbers. We are continuing to work hard to learn new sounds in phonics.
Just a quick reminder to remember book bags EVERYDAY!

Happy Birthday Maisie

The children discovered our new text by playing pass the parcel and finding "Happy Birthday Maisie" inside. Throughout the week the children have made birthday cards, wrote invitations, decorated the home corner ready for a party, wrapped presents and counted candles onto cakes. We celebrated on Friday with a party for Maisie, we iced biscuits, made sandwiches and drinks. Then we played lots of birthday games and had lots of fun!


Alongside this the children have continued to work hard on their phonics and handwriting in group times and throughout child initiated activities. In Maths the children have been investigating, counting and recognising numbers.


Please could you ensure all children have their book bags EVERYDAY!
