Reception

This half term we have had the exciting opportunity of having chicks in school. So far the children have watched them hatch into 10 gorgeous chicks! The children are really enjoying watching the chicks grow and learning all about the life cycle of chickens. We are also having meerkats coming to visit our school, which will be another fantastic learning opportunity for the children!

I am really looking forward to the run up to Christmas. The children will soon be beginning to learn the Christmas play and I am sure you will get to hear a taster of some of the songs in weeks to come!

We look forward to getting to know you and your children better over the course of this year! If you have any questions about how your child is doing at school, please don’t hesitate to contact, myself (Miss Rawson), Mrs Martin or Mrs Ryder. 

Thank you,
Miss Rawson
