Welcome to Reception 2018/19
The EYFS team (Mrs Allen, Mrs Fitzpatrick, Mrs Wilson and
Mrs Weaver) are ready for another fabulous year of learning, exploration and fun.
On our web page you will find curriculum information, images and comments from learning experiences in school and visits, copies of EYFS letters.
Information can also be found on our Information Board in the outdoor area.
Baptism visit to St Peters In Chains.
Reception and Year 1 took baby Olivia to be baptised. She became part of Gods family. Her parents, God-parents and family watched Fr. Darren pour holy water and make the sign of the cross on her forehead. Afterwards Olivia's family and friends came together to celebrate this joyful occasion.
Making our Advent Wreath.
We worked as a whole class selecting evergreen leaves and placing purple, pink and white candles within our wreath. Fr Darren came to check on our wreath when it was finished.
We asked some wonderful questions...
Why is it round?
Is it a clock without numbers?
Why purple candles?
Do you light the candles with the Easter candles?
Are they birthday candles?
Fr Darren blessed our wreath at a special school service and we started to use it the very same day.
Wednesday January 23rd, a very frosty day.
It was a very frosty morning and our children went out to explore this frosty, cold world. There are lots of photos in our Big Book Of Learning but the children and EYFS staff wanted to share this beautiful moment.
