Reception 1- Miss O'Brien

Miss O'Brien


Our end of year show and teddy bears picnic.

We had a fantastic day on the beach.

On Friday we made toast and learnt about the importance of eating breakfast. We could choose cheese, jam or butter to spread on our toast. We all spread our fillings on our toast using a knife independently.

Today we learnt about the importance of washing our hands with soap and warm water to keep us clean and healthy.

We carried out a science investigation to find out what drinks affect our teeth the most.

Spring term 2017

Stay and Play Friday 31st March at 8.45am. Come along and make some Easter crafts with your child. 

Today we had great fun holding the chicks.

At the end of school there was signs of the eggs pipping. Let's see if there are chicks hatched in the morming.

The chick eggs have settled into Reception. We are watching them closely to see any signs of the chicks hatching no sign yet.

The Chick Eggs have arrived in school. In Reception we have been looking at the eggs closely to see if they are starting to hatch.

We had lots of fun tasting and making healthy snacks and drinks with our families. We all made a fruit kebab and a pitta bread pizza.

Happy New Year!!

A very warm welcome back, we hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. The children enjoyed telling us all about what they got up to over the holidays. They have all started the new term with renewed energy, ready and eager to learn.

Please keep reading at home with your child as this is having a positive impact on their learning in all areas. We look forward to the new term and all the exciting things your child will be learning.


Please join us on Friday 20th January for stay and play from 9-10 am! We will be making and tasting lots of healthy snacks.
