Along with our daily lessons, in Reception we learn through play. We have lots of independent learning activities to choose from…

Have a look at some of the things we do…

Threading helps our fine motor skills.

Building a tall tower using the giant Lego. How tall are you? Are you taller, shorter or the same as the tower?

We made houses for our small world toys. 

Our reading area is a space to enjoy many different books, together or independently. Do you have a favourite book?

We love using our Octons to construct and create.

Imaginative play builds our social and communication skills.

We like playing Teachers. Miss Ellery and Ms Kelleher even let us use their teacher things!

As we are getting ready for Year 1, we have been taking our learning to the tables. This will help us get prepared for next year!

Exploring colour and colour mixing in the creative area.

The writing area is a busy and fun place to be. It’s definitely a big hit! We use our Grow the Code display to write our words.

Even our outdoor area boasts a lively writing table. We spend so much time here – working together and independently.

 

We work and play alongside and with our friends. We share, take turns, talk and ask each other lots of questions.

We love having visitors so if you would like to come and see our learning, please arrange a visit with the school office!

Goodbye for now,

The Reception Team

The children will be meeting their new class teacher this Wednesday @10.30am where they will spend one hour in their new classroom. This is an exciting opportunity for the children to get to know more about their new teachers and find out what their new classroom will look like.

Thank you,

EYFS Team

While the weather is hot can I please remind parents to dress your child in appropriate clothing. No tights, jumpers or cardigans please. The children can bring in a sun hat into school and please ensure that they come into school with SPF sun cream applied at home. Please ensure they bring in a water bottle. If you need help with any of the items, we may be able to offer help. Please speak to a member of staff from the nursery team.

Thank you in advance,

The Nursery Team

 

 

Dear Parents,

Next week on Friday 5th July the children will be taking part in diversity day. Your child can wear their own clothes and show off their individuality. We will also have a picnic outside and the children can bring in their own snacks, traditional food and drinks.

Thank you,

The Nursery Team

On Thursday 20th June, year 4 took part in an under 9’s cricket competition playing against 14 other schools from Peckham, Walworth and Camberwell. The teams all played a number of matches and it was a lovely day. One of our teams even made it through to the final after winning all of their matches and were declared the overall winners of the day!

Every child who took part in the tournament deserves a huge congratulations for their efforts and excellent sportsmanship and a huge congratulations to the overall winners too.

We are excited to invite parents to join us for our end of term assembly at 9:30 AM on July 15, 2024. During the assembly, we will share highlights of what we have learned this year and perform a special song about friendship.

The song is called ‘Count on me’ by Bruno Mars. Here are the lyrics below for you to practise with your child at home.

Oh-oh
If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the seaI’ll sail the world to find youIf you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t seeI’ll be the light to guide you
We’ll find out what we’re made ofWhen we are called to help our friends in need
You can count on me like one, two, threeI’ll be thereAnd I know when I need it, I can count on you like four, three, twoAnd you’ll be there‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh, yeahOoh-ooh-ooh-oohOoh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah
If you tossin’ and you’re turnin’ and you just can’t fall asleepI’ll sing a song beside youAnd if you ever forget how much you really mean to meEvery day I will remind you, oh
We’ll find out what we’re made ofWhen we are called to help our friends in need
You can count on me like one, two, threeI’ll be thereAnd I know when I need it, I can count on you like four, three, twoAnd you’ll be there‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh, yeahOoh-ooh-ooh-oohOoh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah
You’ll always have my shoulder when you cryI’ll never let go, never say goodbyeYou know
You can count on me like one, two, threeI’ll be thereAnd I know when I need it I can count on you like four, three, twoAnd you’ll be there‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh, yeahOoh-ooh-ooh-oohOoh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh
You can count on me ’cause I can count on you

 

 

Our nursery’s sports day was an incredible success, filled with fun, excitement, and unforgettable moments. The children displayed fantastic energy and enthusiasm, participating in various activities that showcased their developing physical skills and team spirit. Thank you to all the parents who turned up and supported their child.
