Reception had a brilliant day at the farm! They helped to feed the animals, take care of the new born chicks, play a part in the Nativity story, meet Santa's reindeers and actually meet Santa himself!
Thank you to the parent who attended our Christmas crafts session. It was lovely to see you being creative with your children and spending some lovely quality time together. What fabulous decoration your created as well children 😊
Reception were excited to find a whole stack of advent calendars and a message from Santa saying he had left the children a gift for being so good at school. The children were so excited and grateful that Santa paid them a visit!
Thank you to all the parents and children who attended our annual bedtime phonics session. The children loved coming back to school in their pyjamas to have hot chocolate and listening to a bedtime story. It was great to see so many parents attend the phonics workshop and I hope you learnt lots about RWI and feel more confident about teaching your child to read at home.
Reception had a visit from the school dental nurse and her friend Horris the Horse. Debbie talked to the children about their teeth and what they need their teeth for. Debbie used Horris to show the children how the dentist looks at the children's teeth and how to brush their teeth to make sure each one of them was cleaned properly. She also reminded the children of the types of food they should eat and how to keep their teeth healthy.
Reception had a very exciting morning when the firemen came to visit. They all had a go at using the firemen's hose, trying on the special fire fighter uniform and all had a turn at sitting in the fire engine with the blue flashing lights on!The firemen told the children all about their job and what they need to do if they ever needed to call the firemen.
Reception have been officially welcomed into the family of St Osburg's School. They took part in our first school mass of the school year and celebrated with their family and class friends.
Look at how well our lovely children have settled in
