Taster Day in Reception

Nursery children had their transition into Reception today. We found out where our new class areas are and made lots of new friends. We shared snack time in our new family groups where we had milk/water and fruit.

We were very busy, take a look at some of the things that we have been doing.

Weekend Challenge

During assembly we looked back at the different decades of Mrs Rathburns life, and saw lots of photos of what she looked like.

We thought it would be lovely for you to share some family photos and talk about which decade you were born in and what you liked to do growing up.

Maybe you could even add a photo to Tapestry and your child could tell us all about it!

Dress up day!!

Ahuge thank you to all the parents for all the effort you put into the children’s costumes.

Mrs Rathburn was very suprised to say the least and even came over to have her picture taken with them, dressed up as Rupert the Bear!

The children really have had the most FANTASTIC day!
