Welcome to Violin Class!



In Reception you will find the children in Violin class, you will also meet Mrs Russmann, Mrs Cookson, Miss Latham and Mrs Brown.

The children in reception love to learn and we do it best through our play.  We always have lots of opportunities to learn whether we are playing indoors or outside.

When we start in reception there are lots of things that we can't do...however, we quickly learn a new magic word...YET!  "I can't fasten my coat...yet."  Thanks to this brilliant word our brains are constantly growing.

Each half term we produce a newsletter to keep you up to date on what's happening in Reception.  To read this term's newsletter, click here

Autumn 1 - Ourselves

This half term we will be focusing on stories and activities based on the theme of 'Ourselves'.  We will be learning about parts of the body, exploring the senses and looking at how we've grown and changed.


Friday 9th October was Mental Health Awareness day in school.  To raise some money and awareness, we all wore something yellow in return for a £1 donation.  During the day we read some lovely Colour Monster books, all about feelings.  We also had a funny photo booth, told jokes and did something kind for someone.  We had a great day!

European School Sports Day

Friday 25th September was European School Sports Day and to celebrate, the whole school did 120 minutes of physical activity.  In EYFS we made an obstacle course, danced, played hopscotch and enjoyed parachute games.
