Last week of term in RK

December 20, 2018 at 4:06 pm


The children have made it to the end of term! They have had a great week doing lots of Christmas themed activities. They watched the dress rehearsal of the Key Stage 1 concert, listened to the Christmas story and sequenced the pictures, ordered baubles to 10, enjoyed a Christmas party, Christmas dot to dots, made our calendars and visited Santa at Abbey House museum!

Party time!

We played the chocolate game where you had to roll a 6 and dress up before attempting to cut chocolate, musical statues, musical bumps, Christmas corners, pass the parcel. We then enjoyed some party food and finished with a visit from Santa.

The rest of the week…

RK’s super trip to Abbey house

The children had a wonderful time at Abbey house this morning. They enjoyed making Christmas tree hats, dressing up and seeing the man in red (who apparently chatted a lot!)

Thank you again to the volunteers who came, we couldn’t do it without you.

Christmas in Nursery

December 14, 2018 at 3:40 pm


This week has again been a busy week in Nursery!

We have been preparing for Christmas by making cards. The children decided what they wanted on their cards, chose shapes and colours and used their cutting skills. Then they wrote their names inside. They are all proud of what they have made and hope you like the final products.

On Wednesday it was Christmas dinner day. The children practised cutting their food and everyone enjoyed wearing their hats.

And finally…

Our amazing Christmas Nativity performances on Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon. We are all very proud of each and every child who got on to the stage and performed in front of all those people. Well done everyone!

Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget our party next Wednesday.

Christmas and Fun in RH

December 14, 2018 at 1:52 pm


Christmas has been all around us this week with our Christmas performances and Christmas dinner on Wednesday.

Well done to all the children for their fantastic singing and efforts in the performance.

Please click here for information around the children’s learning this week.



The children have been very interested in writing stories this week. We have been very impressed with their story telling and writing skills.

What else has been happening?

It is ‘party day’ on Wednesday so the children can come to school in their own clothes/party outfits. The children will receive a letter today asking for a small donation of food or drink for Wednesday.

On Thursday we are going to Abbey House Museum. Please return your permission slip and payment if you haven’t already.

On Fridays, the children can swap their library book for a new one. Last week, we only had eight children with books returned. Please can you ensure the children’s library books are in their Book Bags on Fridays so they can choose a new one. The children love visiting the school library.

Have a great weekend. I wonder if we’ll see some snow?…

A busy Christmas week in RK

December 13, 2018 at 12:07 pm


RK have had a very busy week with 2 Christmas concerts and learning about patterns and the phonemes x and y.

We have had a lot of fun using shapes and Christmas objects to make repeating patterns with. The children are good at repeating a pattern using 2 shapes/pictures, if we continue the patterns below it is a little trickier:

The children have chosen to create their own patterns using compare bears and complete patterns on the computer.

They have worked as a team to create their own repeating pattern Christmas paper!

We have learnt the phonemes x and y and the children are excited to learn they have nearly done the whole alphabet! Although there are a lot, more sounds to learn! They have been trying to sound out and spell some CVC words like mix, fix, six, yes, yet. They are working hard on remembering how to form the phoneme they can hear.

On Wednesday, the children enjoyed a superb Christmas lunch prepared by Claire and her team. The children had all the trimmings including hats!

The rest of the week in pictures….

We are so proud of the children’s performance in their Christmas concerts. They did a super job singing and remembering their lines. Next week they have a fun filled week – party day and the trip to Abbey House Museum.

Have a lovely weekend. Wrap up warm, it’s nearly the end of term!

Reception learning this week

December 13, 2018 at 8:05 am


This week in phonics we have learnt the phonemes x and y. The children have been sounding out and blending CVC words containing those phonemes like yet, mix, six, yes. They have also tried sounding them out to spell the words.


In maths we revised our knowledge of 2D shapes and then learnt all about pattern. We started by looking at 2 shapes and how they repeated.

We then went on to look at patterns we might see all around us.

The children particularly enjoyed matching up Christmas wrapping paper to continue a pattern and then creating their own wrapping paper!!
