A very warm welcome to all our new children and their families in Year R. We look forward to getting to know you and your children over the coming months. We are always here to answer any questions or help with any concerns you may have, so please do not hesitate to ask! We hope you enjoy visiting our page and seeing your children engaged in their learning throughout the year. 


Here's to a happy, uninterrupted school year!

As we come to the end of the School Year, we can thank God for a lovely year and for keeping us all safe and well. I hope you enjoy the memories!

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside! We have had a beautiful day at Bridlington as part of this term's  curriculum. There are so many happy faces in these photos - a bit of sea air is so good for us all!

Here are the Year R children performing in our Jubilee Assembly. Thank you to those that came this morning, and if you were unable to come, we hope you enjoy this little film!

We are thoroughly enjoying learning about the life of the Queen and preparing for her Platinum Jubilee. We know lots of facts about the Queen and have enjoyed lots of "Queen" stories. Following on from reading The Queen's Knickers, we designed some beautiful Royal Knickers, and when the Queen's Knickers went missing, we made posters with the aim of finding them. And of course, after reading "The Queen's Hat" we had to make some hats that were fit for a Queen! We have modelled them here for you - some more keen than others!!!

To start our Summer Term off, we have a had a fabulous "Play and Stay" session making Castles for the Queen. We have been finding out which castles Queen Elizabeth likes to live in; we know her favourite is Windsor Castle. I think you will agree that we have made some very impressive ones today!

We have had a wonderful day celebrating our favourite books and the children spent the day dressed as one of their favourite characters, or ready to have lots of "bedtime" stories in their cosy pyjamas! Luckily, we had plenty of stories thanks to our lovely Year 5 children, who spent some of the morning reading to us. Thank you Year 5, and thank you to all the parents who have been our "mystery readers". The children have been so excited to see who was going to read to us at story time each day!

This half term we have been exploring The Arctic and Antarctica. We know lots of Polar Bear and Penguin Facts and which animals live where.  We planned how to get to the South Pole to take a lost little penguin home, made posters in case anyone was looking for him, and wrote lists so we would know what to pack. We have made "Who am I?" lift the flap books and wrote clues about different arctic animals. We wondered what it would like to be a penguin; it would be fun to swim and slide and eat plenty of fish! We have painted penguins and sketched polar bears, and made igloos inside and out. I think we might be Snow Animal Experts!

We have also been programming a Beebot, drawing maps, learning some digraphs, looking at different ways of making a number, mixing "tiger" colours for Chinese New Year, thinking about gifts we can give to Jesus, and making music. And lots of other things too! Take a look below!


Year R have had a very busy month getting ready for Christmas. On top of our daily activities, we have been working hard in Santa's Grotto, writing letters, wrapping presents, being Santa, partying,  and most importantly, telling the story of the First Christmas, which the children did beautifully.

This week, it was lovely to welcome some parents for our first Play and Stay session of the year. We got to use all the sticks we collected on our walk and have made some fabulous Stick Men and Stick Lady Loves! The children decided what were the best materials to join their sticks and they were able to show off their skills to our visitors. Next week we will be looking at the book "Leaf Man" so please bring in any beautiful leaves you see on your travels!

What can you make with a stick? Hopefully, over the next few weeks, we will find out! After reading the book "Not a Stick" by Antoinette Portis, we set off on our Autumn Walk to find some STICKS!!!

Below are some pictures of our first three days at school. We have been cutting, playing, building, painting, mixing, balancing, reading, creating, catching rain and working in a Drive-Through McDonalds!

Our Football Day!

What a wonderful day at the seaside! Despite the cold on the East Coast, we had a great day out breathing in the fresh sea air, digging, playing and having fun! How lovely to get out and about at last!

The Pirates have arrived this week in Year R!

Please note that Year R's PE day has moved to Monday for this half term. We will be learning lots of new skills with Shannon from Leeds Rhinos!

We have now had all our Play and Stay sessions in readiness for next week. The children have all had a great time and it has been good to get to know them in small groups. We look forward to seeing you all next week!
