Rainbows in Reception

This week, Reception Class presented an assembly all about the work they have been doing this term. They have been learning about water and told us all about rainbows, sang a song, displayed their beautiful rainbow mobiles and told us about rainbow fish. It was a wonderfully colourful and informative assembly enjoyed by all.

Our ‘stars’ of the week

Our ‘stars’ of the week, receiving special mention in assembly yesterday, were:

Edward B (Nursery), for being kind and thoughtful during a swimming lesson. Edward helped his class mates jump in the pool!

Grace T (Reception), for being a kind friend to everyone in the class.  Grace tries hard in everything including reading, writing and maths.

Charlie McN (Year 1) for being kind and compassionate when thinking about looking after our planet. Charlie produced an excellent poster on caring for the environment.

Evelyn B (Year 2) for an amazing circus poem produced during the holidays. She demonstrated wonderful use of language and words.

Well done, everyone.  Who will it be next week?

Reception assembly – the pictures!

Yesterday’s class assembly by our confident little Reception pupils was a delight, as already reported. Here, now, are some more pictures from the performance. You can also see some of their colourful artwork, including brightly painted Jack and the Beanstalk-inspired giants! Thank you once again to all the parents, grandparents and family members who came – we hope you all enjoyed the opportunity to see the children working together and share in some of their achievements. It is great to see their growing confidence in performing and learning lines!

Reception show us how beans grow!

What makes a little bean grow into a big, healthy plant? Our Reception pupils know – and they told us all about it in a wonderful assembly this morning. Look out for more photos and a report coming soon. Meanwhile, here is a lovely picture of the children on stage, showing how their confidence is growing, and showing off the giant paintings they had done!

Thank you to all the parents who came – we hope you enjoyed the opportunity to see the children working together and showcasing some of their achievements. Well done everyone!

Our busy Nursery bees

Our Nursery children have been looking at bees this week.  We have made some hand print painted bees and sung some bee songs.  We looked at the busy work bees do making honey. And we finished off the week by looking at the school bee hive and having a honey sandwich picnic!

Our ‘stars’ this week are…

Star-of-weekOur most recent ‘Stars’, receiving special mention  in this morning’s Prep Department Praise Assembly, are:

Nua G (Nursery Green), for making huge progress in her swimming. Nua has grown in confidence and is jumping in and swimming with her face in the water!

Hattie F-B (Reception), for trying hard with her reading and using her phonic knowledge to sound out words in her writing.

Elysia A (Year 1), for excellent writing. Elysia is independently extending her sentences by using connectives such as ‘when’, ‘suddenly’, ‘because’ and ‘then’.

Beatrix G (Year 2) for her Times Table challenge success – she is on her Gold Level and can do her 6, 7, 8 and 9 tables. Beatrix also learned her tricky lines very well for our class assembly this week and wrote an excellent story:  “The Day I landed on the Moon”

Well done to all of these ‘stars’! Who will it be next week? The picture is from Year 2’s class assembly on Tuesday.
