  • Mystery Books!

    Published 09/03/16, by Reception Blog

    To celebrate World Book Day, the children in Reception all took home a mystery parcel! The children were excited to choose their parcel and take it home to open. The following week, the children were full of news of what book was inside ther package. Some children had recipe books, others had fairy tale books, others had books in which they could practise their handwriting. We hope you had fun reading them at home, and maybe following some of the recipe and craft ideas!

    A big thanks to Sainsburys supermarket for very kindly donating the books!

  • Dinosaur Mystery

    Published 13/01/14, by Reception Blog

    We had a big surprise when we returned to class after assembly! We were  greeted by the sight of a very messy snack table and four dinosaurs sitting nearby. After a lively discussion we realised that the only possible answer was that the dinosaurs had helped themselves to snack and had forgotten to tidy up! Some of the children suggested it was just like the story Dinosaurs in the Supermarket, one of our favourite stories. We have written about it in our writing books and some of us even made shelters for them! Look out for more dinosaur adventures over the weeks.

You can help us in this by looking out for any dinosaur related books and stories, and also by helping them to find facts about dinosaurs. Keep checking the website to see how we get on!
