Hello Puffins,

I am lookng forward to seeing lots of you at the Reception Disco.  We have had a busy week learning different sounds, reading stories, painting portraits of our faces, going on tours of the school and doing lots of number activities.

It’s getting much cooler outside, so make sure you bring in your coat everyday.  Also remember to practise fastening your coat!

Next week we wll be looking at signs of autumn.   We will be doing lots of artwork and listening to some stories and poems related to autumn.

Here are some pictures of the puffins in action!


Well done to all the Puffins!

We have finished our first full week of school today.   We have been busy painting our own Puffins this week. We now have a lovely display of them  in our classroom.  We have been learning about Puffins in class and we have loved listening to some stories about Puffins too.

Next week we will be going on a tour of the school, meeting the teachers and other key staff.  As part of our ‘New faces, new places’ topic we will look at the different features on faces. We will painting our own faces and making a display in our claa of them all.

Remember the EYFS Presentation for Parents/Carers will take place on Wednesday 19th September at 9.00am in the school hall. The presentation will inform you about what the children will learn in Reception.

We will be starting library on Thursday next week.  The children will be able to choose a book to take home.  Please remember to return it te following week so that your child can choose another book.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the children’s first day photos from last week.

Hello Puffins,

We have had a lovely first day at school.  It has been very exciting meeting you all.  We have had a busy day playing with some of our new toys in the classroom and exploring our playground outside.  The children did so well learning the lunchtime routine and enjoyed the school dinners.

Don’t forget to bring your buddy cards in on Monday!

Have a great weekend,

Mrs Ridehalgh and Mrs Griffiths

I am looking forward to seeing you again in September. Have a lovely summer!

Best wishes

Mrs Ridehalgh
