Current Topic - Life Cycles

Our topic this half term is ‘Life Cycles’ following our children’s recent fascination in R.E.  We will be learning all about the life cycles of different plants and animals and we will be doing lots of investigating!
Why not visit your local library and share an information book about life cycles? Feel free to bring it in to share in class.

Our curriculum overview for this half term can be accessed here or on the curriculum page. 


Other Information 


Reception and Afternoon Nursery - Wednesdays

Morning Nursery - Fridays

Nursery children should come to school in their P.E. kits. 


Reading Books, Key Rings and High Frequency Words 

Reading books, key rings and high frequency words must be brought to school every day.

Books are changed on a Wednesday and we hear your child read their books and HFWs throughout the week.  Please remember to sign your child's reading record each time they read at home.  Children must read at least 4 times per week to keep their reading Golden Promise!  We also give out certificates for every 25 times your child reads at home.


Read with Me

Parents/carers are invited into class to read with their child each Friday morning until 9.00am.

We are also excited to be launching 'Family Book Chatter Sessions' each half term.  These sessions are for our Foundation Stage children, their parents/carers and younger siblings.  It is a chance to get together to share the love of reading in a rich and stimulating environment.  There will be a big focus on sharing the Imagination Library books, which all children in Doncaster can receive each month, for FREE, until their fifth birthday.  If you haven't signed up yet, follow this link or ask Miss Shelton to complete an application form in school. 



Homework will be given out on Fridays for reception children and should be returned by the following Wednesday.  Homework can be found on the homework page

Chicks  - May 2017

As part of our topic, 'From Egg to Chick,' we have had some little visitors!  We have been able to watch our chicks hatch from their egg and we have been able to hold them.  It has been very exciting! 

Multiskills - May 2017

Both Nursery and Reception took part in a Multiskills session, supported by a group of Y5 children.  We had a great time competing in different challenges and enjoyed timing and recording our scores.  Here are some photos from the session...

Thank you to Laura, our Road Safety Officer, who visited our class to teach us about staying safe near roads and how we can travel safely in the car. 

Bedtime Reading Event - February 2017

Thank you to all those who came back to school in their pyjamas for our annual Bedtime Story Event.  We shared a wide range of fantastic books and resources that supported them.  It was a great night for everyone! 

Some of the feedback we received: 
"My child had such a great night.  We can't wait for next year!"
"It was so lovely to see all of the children and adults excited about reading."
"My child wants to come back to school every night for a bed time story!" 
"Some of the resources were so easy to create or gather - I've got some great ideas to try at home."
"Thank you very much for a wonderful event. It was enjoyed by all."

Here are some photos from the evening...
