Reception reading morning reminder

A little reminder we will be holding our next Reading morning on Friday 29th March from 8.30- 9am. We are asking parents to come and join their child in their classes for at least 5 minutes reading a book to them or with them. We are continuing to promote a child's love of reading and we hope it will provide an opportunity for you to be able to share in this.

We hope you will then be able to join us in the KS1 hall for our spring term Mother's day themed stay and play.

We very much look forward to welcoming you then.

Reception Team

Year One save the day!

The year one children had a wonderful time this week at Discover Children's Story Centre in Stratford.  They let their imagination run wild in the exciting indoor Story World.  They joined the resident space alien, Hootah, on a story collecting mission. On his planet, Squiggly Diggly, everyone had run out of imagination. And that meant no stories! The children helped Hootah by creating a new story for him to take back to his planet. 

After enjoying a delicious, and much needed, packed lunch the children ventured outside for even more fun in the Story Garden,  Finally the exhausted children boarded the coach and made their way back to school.  Thank you to the staff at Discover Children's Story Centre for a lovely day.

"I loved our school trip" exclaimed Aiden.
