Current Topic - Pirates and Princesses
Our class topic this half term is Pirates and Princesses!
We will be looking at the lifestyles of a pirate, what clothes they wore, how they travelled and then comparing their lifestyles to that of a prince or princess.
Please click here for the curriculum overview for this term.
Following the whole school 'Come and See' scheme, the topics we will be covering this half term are:
Reception and Afternoon Nursery - Tuesday
Reception and Morning Nursery - Fridays morning
Nursery children should come to school in their P.E. kits.
The school PE kit is white top, black shorts and trainers/black pumps.
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.
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.

Well done children.
St Teresa's Baptism
As part of our topic on welcome, we looked at how we welcome people into God's family. We learnt all about Baptisms and why they are important. We then began to plan our own Baptism to welcome baby Jessica.
First we planned the welcome party. We made buns, wrote Baptism cards, wrapped presents and wrote a shopping list so Miss Payne knew what food we needed.
We then put on our smart clothes and went to Church to Baptise baby Jessica.
Here are some photographs of a lovely day!
Pupils and Staff from our school went over to St Joseph & St Teresa's Church where Fr Bede celebrated Mass for the start of the new academic year. At the end of Mass as a welcome to our school and to mark their faith journey with us, our Reception children received prayer cards for their buddies in St George's Class.
