Friday 30th April

We have had a great week in Reception.  On Tuesday, we had a fantastic African Drumming workshop.  The children really enjoyed following a beat on the drums and dancing along to African music.  In Literacy, we have been designing our own Superbug and writing about its superpowers.  In Maths, we have been practicing our counting backwards and writing our numerals.  

Next week we will be innovating the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.  We will also be making different bugs and doing lots of counting and adding of legs and spots!

For homework this weekend we would like you to take part in the Nationwide Captain Tom 100 challenge.  We look forward to hearing about what challenge you choose to do.  Please put photos on tapestry. 


Captain Sir Tom Moore’s simple message of hope – “tomorrow will be a good day” –has inspired and brought comfort to millions of people during the pandemic. Last year, Captain Tom set out round his garden to thank our NHS heroes and, one hundred laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal. 

Friday 30 April would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday and to celebrate his life, the hope and joy he brought to millions, and his sense of fun, The Captain Tom Foundation is inviting everyone, of all ages and abilities, to take part in the Captain Tom 100

The idea is simple. Take on a challenge based around the number 100. Just decide on your 100 challenge and complete it on Friday 30 April or continue the challenge at home right through to Monday 3 May. It could be to read 100 pages in a book, give 100 compliments, run 100 metres, learn to count to 100 or solve maths problems to do with the number 100. Raise money for The Captain Tom Foundation or your chosen good cause, or just do your Captain Tom 100 challenge for fun! There are lots of ideas and resources on our website


Wishing you all a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend. Stay Safe.

Writing Workshop Wednesday 20th January



Mrs McMann mentioned in Wednesday's meeting that the children will be receiving log in details for Oxford Owl.  Here you will be able to access reading books for the children to read whilst they are at home.  We would recommend reading 1 to 2 books each week with your child, providing plenty of opportunity for discussions based on the story they have read and lots of open ended questions.
