Today (Friday 1st February 2019) the children of reception performed their very first assembly in front of the whole school. They talked all about their learning on dinosaurs and the exciting history that goes with it.
They first listed some of the different types dinosaurs such as: Triceratops, Pterodactyl, Tyrannosaurus Rex , Brontosaurus, Stegosaurus and many more! They then showed us some of their pictures, which were amazing, that they drew all by themselves.
Next, they acted like cavemen and dinosaurs which was really entertaining! After that, reception showed us how people used to live like back in the days of dinosaurs. They used the information from the book ‘Dinosaurs in underpants’ to share with us all these amazing facts that they have discovered. All the children spoke with beautifully clear voice and had learnt all of their words off by heart.
It was a brilliant assembly and we certainly cannot wait for their next one!

Today, Friday the 6th, RD had their last class assembly before they venture off into the world of year one.They talked about all of their memories through the year such as: hatching ducklings , learning about dinosaurs and doing lots of fun things.The five duckling had been called Dexter, Flower,Booboo, Deggy and Josh. They even did art around they ducklings which they showed in the assembly. After that, the audience, including their parents, learnt about all of the great school trips they had been on through out the year. These included; the Rainbow Factory and Thornton Hall Farm. From the sound of it they duly enjoyed both of their visits.
To finish the fabulous assembly they talked about what they want to be when they grow up and they showed a slide show of pictures from what they had been up to throughout the year which you can watch below along with the video of the assembly.

Today was RD’s class assembly where we learnt about what they have done these last couple of months and the books they have read. At first, they talked about the brilliant way Reception Class have learnt how to spell all their sounds and letters; a girl even held up some letter cards while the class showed the audience how they remembered them all. On the other side of the hall, a boy went to write a few words they had discovered on their journey through reception.
The children began to talk about the book they had been reading over the past few weeks called Harry And The Dinosaur, which they had really enjoyed learning about. Even children dressed up in multi-coloured dinosaur costumes! One day, Harry went into his attic and discovered a bucket full of toy dinosaurs, which he imagined in his head were real. He went with his mum on holiday but suddenly he began to forget about his bucket full of dinosaurs, leaving the dinosaurs sad and upset. When he arrived home, he started to remember his dinosaurs.
It was a fantastic assembly and they all did a great job! Well done RD!

On Tuesday the 7th of June, Reception class visited a fantastic day out at Thornton Hall farm! The class Teacher quoted “We had an amazing day!”. They got to have a trip in a tractor all around the farm they saw sheep, cows and dear. Could you believe it they also got to feed the lambs and calves with milk from a bottle! They held a kit (a baby rabbit) and guinea pigs, stroked the chicks, goats, lambs and ducklings! Then they had their lunch, which they brought from home, or was provided by the school. After lunch, they went egg collecting and went to see the horses and piglet. Then, they stroked cocoa the pony. When they had finished that, they all had ice-cream and played on the slides. They had a very busy day!

This morning Reception class had a shock! As if by magic , while they were playing outside having fun a certain person called. A tiny little elf, who was called Steve, dialled on Skype and whispered ‘If you sing a song, a special person will come!’so they sang a traditional carol. On the count of three they sang Jingle bells and they sounded lovely and in no time at all Santa himself appeared on the screen. I’m sure Santa loved it but he did not like what was next… Mr Lowe,our Year 4 teacher, deafen them with his singing of When Santa came down the chimney but with the wrong words! I do not know why they did not take cover. He sang Although he said,’I sang beautifully ‘ we all knew he was very, very, very wrong.
Soon enough,Steve had enough and Mr Lowe was quite so Santa spoke to the children, telling them how hard they had been working and some children even got a special mention! All the children loved it and are super excited from Chirstmas now!
