Exciting news for home reading!
To support your child with reading at home, we have subscribed to the Oxford Owl eBook Library giving access to more than 500 ebooks for use across the age range from Reception to Year 6.
Over the next week or so, your child’s teacher will be in touch with details of how to log in to the library and what your child will be expected to do to ensure that they continue to develop their reading skills whilst learning at home.
Please see the leaflet for more information. If you have any further questions, please contact the class teacher in the usual way.
PE is on a Thursday.

Red Nose Day races
Reception Class took part in Egg and Spoon races as part of the Red Nose Day fun activities this year.
Reception spent the morning in the outside classroom for their wellbeing day. The children made bunting from pictures of what made them happy and spent the morning talking about the different emotions. We also had lots of fun in the snow!
In Reception, we have been continuing our space theme. We have had lots of fun making and launching our own rockets. We really enjoyed eating the fruit kebabs that we made and tried lots of different kinds of fruit. This week, we have also been learning about shapes.
On Wednesday Reception class were amazing at sitting quietly during the 2 minutes silence. We watched the Poppies animation and made poppies for children to wear.
