Please find below some of the comments from recent feedback on our questionnaire for parents. 

"Amazing teachers who have the time for all the children and parents. Lessons and parent info are well thought out"

"The teachers are very hands on with each child and are easy to talk to"

"My child has been here for the past year and we can say that the attitude towards the kids is wonderful! He loves to come to school and that tells us everything"

"My children have been to a lot of different schools and can honestly say this school has been the best, it ticks every box"

"Very friendly and supportive learning environment that encourages and supports strong links with home"

"I would like to thank all reception staff for supporting and teaching my child. I am proud of how she has grown in such a short amount of time"

Wish Tree

Inside the reception classroom we have a 'Wish Tree' where the children can tell us what they would like to learn about. You will notice that leaves are beginning to appear on the tree.


You will have also recieved some orange and yellow leaves so that you can tell us what you 'wish' for your children to learn during their first year at school. These leaves are now being added to the tree and we hope that your children will achieve what you have 'wished' for them by the end of the year


Our new Topic ...

We have looked at the children’s ideas on the ‘Wish Tree’ and have decided that ’Journeys’ will be our next topic. We ‘brainstormed’ the topic with the children. Please have a look at our ‘brainstorming’ as it is stuck on the window, in the classroom. We decided to start our topic with a set of adventure books: ‘Journey’, ‘Quest’ and ‘Return’. Throughout this topic we will be:

· Enjoying the adventure books by talking about: what is happening in the pictures and predicting what might happen next

· Retelling the stories in the correct sequence

· Working in a group to create our own interpretation of things in the stories

· Using adjectives to describe places in the story

· Using our imaginations to write our own stories about an adventure

· Discussing journeys / adventures we have been on

· Exploring structures e.g. castles / bridges

· Playing in the ‘Airport’ role play area

Look out for ideas for topics to discuss each week with your children on the entrance window.
