Reception visitors … part 1!

We are very lucky to have lots of different people who us help in our community. To introduce our new topic ‘People Who Help Us’ a special visitor is coming to see Reception class each week.

Last week, Lynn and John came to see us to talk about the Army! We got the chance to ask lots of questions about their jobs and how they help different people. Lynn and John brought us different equipment and uniform that we could look at and try on. They also brought some survival packs for us to taste. They even set up a mini assault course for us in our outdoor area. It was a very fun and interesting afternoon and it helped us learn lots of information about the Army.

Mother’s Day 2019

On Thursday, Reception class performed a Mother’s Day assembly in front of Year 1, Year 2 and lots of parents. The children did really well – speaking clearly, singing loudly and making everyone really proud.

Well Done Reception Class! 

St Paul’s Nativity and Carol Concert 2018

On Thursday, Reception performed a traditional nativity play for their family and friends in St Paul’s church. Each year group also sang a Christmas carol during the service.

A big THANK YOU to everybody who helped and also family and friends who came to watch.

We hope you all enjoyed watching it as much as the children enjoyed performing it!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

From all the staff and students at St Paul’s 🙂
