Week beginning 12th September 

This week we have welcomed and settled our new Reception classes into school. 

We have had lots of fun getting to know them individually, and spending time exploring our school and learning what it means

to be in Reception.

The children stayed for lunch and explored our canteen. 

We have started our Phonics teaching, beginning with environmental sounds. The children went on a 'sound walk' and were able to draw or write the things that they could hear.

We look forward to our Reception children staying for full days from Tuesday 20th September.
