Autumn Term ll 2018

Well what a busy and exciting half term we have had. The children have been very busy in all areas, especially within their writing and number work as well as within their phonics. Our class Novel ‘Room on the Broom’ provided much inspiration for the children to explore all areas and our Reading mornings have proved a lovely opportunity for the children to share their reading with you all. Reading mornings will continue in the spring term. Thank you for your continued support.

Pantomime Visit – Beauty & the Beast

We had a fabulous time on our educational visit to the Carriageworks theatre in Leeds to see the Pantomime, Beauty and the Beast! The children thoroughly enjoyed the performance and everyone was very well behaved and sensible, the children were a credit to the school.

Christmas and Our Nativity Performance

Our journey towards Christmas was full of fun-packed learning, we made advent wreaths, Christingles. We created beautiful tree decorations and even had a visit from the special man himself who delivered some early class Christmas presents.


The highlight of our half term would have to be our wonderful Reception and Nursery performance on the last day of term. Retelling the story of the Nativity in our own unique way. The children should all be extremely proud of themselves, they performed with great confidence and with such beautiful joyous singing. All the rehearsals paid off and I was absolutely delighted with every child’s effort and standard of performance. Thank you to all relatives that came to support this, it really makes it special for the children and for us all.

Wishing you and all your family a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New year to you all.

2018 Autumn l Term

We have had a great start to the year, everyone has settled in very well and are enjoying all the opportunities Reception class offers. The children are doing very well with learning all the new routines, staying all day and having their lunch in the hall with the rest of the school, as well as attending school mass in Church and of course the weekly assemblies in the school hall. They have all really impressed me with their grown up attitudes.                      

The Rainbow Fish

We have been doing lots of learning based around our class novel, The Rainbow Fish, learning about relationships and how we share and care for each other in class and at home. Our Pirate Ship Role play area has been a big hit especially walking the plank and finding treasure using their own treasure maps.


I am extremely proud of how the children have adapted very quickly to staying the full day in school. The new routine of Lunch time has been embraced and the children are choosing and enjoying the lovely dinners that are on offer including extra healthy choices from the salad bar.
