We start each phonics lesson by revising the sounds we have previously taught

We then introduce the new sound we are learning

Phonics workshop

Thank you so much to everyone that came to our phonics workshop this morning. It was lovely to see so many parents and grandparents there. We hope you found it useful and are now able to further support your child's learning at home. 

African dancing

As part of our whole class text called Anna Hibiscus' Song we have been learning some African dancing because that is what Anna's uncle Tunde likes to do when he is happy. We had so much fun learning the dance moves!

Remembrance Day

This week the children have been learning about Remembrance Day and why we wear poppies. We then made our own Remembrance Day poppies using plastic bottles. You can see the displays in the classrooms. 


The Reception children and staff all had fun taking part in a zumba workshop this morning. Check out our moves!

Health Week

Reception started our 'OLM Gets physical week' by talking about healthy foods. We then made our own fruit pizzas/wraps. We had so much fun!

We can't wait to welcome all the new Reception children next week. The classes are all set up and ready for learning. Take a look at some of the photos!
