Reception in the Forest!

Today Reception had their first visit to the forest and had a wonderful time!  Children will have their ‘Treetop Thursday’ time every Thursday afternoon, so if your child has not yet bought in a pair of wellies, could we have them for next week?  Many thanks…..

Year 2 Walk to Newport

Year 2 have taken part in a very special walk around the local area.

As we were learning to find our way around Newport as part of our Geography topic, we also paid our respects to the late Queen.

We went into Twigs flower shop and they very kindly gave us some flowers, which we later laid at The Buttercross. We also popped into the Guildhall to write in the book of condolence.

Our new Reception class

We were very happy to welcome our new Reception class on 7th September and they have settled in really well.

Here are a few photos of their first week in school, including the lunchtime buddies and a visit to Miss Hedges in the office!

Butterflies in Reception!

Mrs Branch spoke to all the children in Reception about butterflies and how they transformed from caterpillars.

The children had caterpillars in the classroom and eagerly checked on them everyday to see what had happened.

They watched the caterpillar grow into a chrysalis and then one day they walked into the classroom and there was a butterfly!

Mrs Branch and the children then released the butterflies and we have added some photographs below.

Reception outdoor activities

The Reception children have been making full use of the outdoor area on this sunny Friday!

Some of the children wanted to show you their new garden area, where they have already planted beans and carrots and are taking good care of the plants while they grow.

Reception visit to Library

Earlier this week, the Reception children had a lovely walk into Newport and spent some time in the library.

They listened to a story , then spent time looking through the books and picking their favourites to share with the staff.
