Sports Day


Today we celebrated our Sports day with lots of visitors. Adam helped us to know which race was next. We competed in:

  • A running race
  • An egg and spoon race
  • A beanbag race
  • A sack race
  • And finally the hurdles.

We have worked very hard preparing for all of these races and we were so pleased to share this wonderful, sunny day with our friends and families. They even got a chance to race too!


Well done everyone!












Wednesday 5th June 2019


Today we had some special visitors. Five firefighters came to see us and talk to us about what they do to keep us safe. They even brought a fire engine with them!



We all got the chance to sit in the fire engine, squirt the hose and talk about what a firefighter has to wear to protect them.











Thank you so much to Sheldon Fire Service for coming to visit us today. We had an amazing time.

Mother’s Day Prayer Service


Today we celebrated Mother’s Day with our visitors. We had a prayer service where we thanked God for our Mummies and Nannies and all of the wonderful things that they do.

We each shared a prayer that we had written, which we then presented to our visitor alongside a special gift box that we had decorated and a flower.

It was a special time that we spent together to show our Mummies and Nannies how much we love them.

EYFS Maths Inspire Workshop


This week we invited our families in to share our Maths learning with them. We taught our grown ups how we learn doubles and halves facts to ten as well as how to use a part-whole diagram to add and subtract.

We then worked with our grown ups to make a game that we could play together to make our learning fun.

We all had a great time and would like to thank all of the grown ups that were able to attend.



EYFS Maths Inspire Workshop


Reception will be holding a Maths Inspire Workshop on Tuesday 26th February 2019 at 9.00-10.00am.

The children will be demonstrating their mathematical skills and will be making some fun resources that you can use to support their learning at home. 

The children love it when a parent (or another adult family member) joins us for these events. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Visit from the Police


The police came to see us today. They brought their uniforms, helmets and hats for us to try on. We also go to see their police bikes and look inside the police van. It was very noisy when they turned the siren on.

We enjoyed learning about how they keep us safe.

Thank you.

EYFS Wedding Celebration

We celebrated the marriage of Lola and Rohan. We went to church for their wedding. The priest blessed the rings and their love.

Then we returned to the classroom for more celebrations. The best man made a lovely speech, the bride and groom cut their wedding cake and we had a party.

We had lots of fun at our celebration.

We’re going on a bear hunt

Sheldon Country Park

9 thand 10th October 2018


The children in Reception enjoyed going on a bear hunt in Sheldon Country Park We travelled through long, wavy grass and thick, oozy mud, splashed through the cold river and even stumbled through the dark forest.

Much to our amazement, we found a bear hiding in the cave. We were very surprised and just about managed to escape. Luckily he was a friendly bear who stayed to share our fruit and play on the park.

Thank you to all the grown ups that came to help us and keep us safe.
