Patterns Everywhere!

We have had a fantastic week exploring patterns in our environment and even creating our own!

The children thoroughly enjoyed going down to the forest on Wednesday to collect some autumnal leaves to create a beautiful picture.

In English, the children have been naming their body parts - we have even sounded some parts out!

All about our Family

We have had a wonderful week exploring and sharing our memories and lovely times we share with our families.

We have established that all families are different and unique but still love one another equally.  We have discussed the three bears family and have been left wondering… where is Goldilocks family and who is in it??

We have made shape people and identified lots of 2d shapes in our environment and our grand finale – making delicious gingerbread men!

Buddy Time!

What a lovely week we have had!

All the children are doing super writing their numbers, using the correct formation and now all know the rhymes to help them.

We have been writing our names, trying to remember the correct formation and we have all improved – which is fantastic!

We met our Year 6 Buddies on Wednesday and had a lovely time.  The year 6 children were lovely with our little ones and it was a pleasure to see them interacting so positively and showing their nurturing side.

At forest school this week we have made autumnal crowns from the natural resources on our forest floor – we all had great fun!


Well Done to JC for being YHF Star of the Week and OH for YRH!

Numbers everywhere!

What a busy week we have had in Reception!!

The children have been fantastic at recognising and ordering numbers this week and are learning the rhymes for writing numbers in the correct formation!

In our forest schools the children worked together in teams to build different sized caves for the 3 bears – it was such great fun!!IMG_2022 IMG_2026 IMG_2031

First Full Week in Reception!

We have had a fantastic first week.  All the children have been super sensible, learning all our new rules and remembering their carpet spaces so quickly!!

We had our first visit to the Forest School, where we explored and discovered lots of natural objects on the forest floor!

Our apple trees had just dropped their apples and we collected them and made apple pie – which we had for snack today with ice cream – little bakers in the making!!


Have a lovely weekend Reception.

Welcome Reception!

Wow!  What an amazing few days we have had.  All the children were fantastic and we can’t wait for our first full week next week!!

This half term we will be learning about people who help us within our community.  If any parents are employed in a role, which you feel the children would benefit from learning about, for example, doctor, fireman or vet, we would be delighted if you could arrange a visit in to speak to us all.

Each half term we have a book which the children will be learning all about.  This half term it is Goldilocks, written by Stephen Tucker.  We have lots of activities planned around this, which we know both the children and ourselves will love!!

Keep checking our blog each Friday to find out about our exciting week in school!!
