Another busy week in Reception

This week we have been exploring the autumn colours, leaves and objects. The children collected and sorted the leaves in different ways. The children have been enjoying exploring how much a number represents with some numberblocks construction this week. 

A New Display

Nursery and Reception children have been busy exploring different types of transport for the school topic ‘On The Move’ as they have been settling into school. We think you’ll agree their mark making looks fantastic! Make sure you check out the display outside Papillons Rouges.

‘On The Move’ Curriculum Day

Today at Queen’s Hill Primary School, pupils were treated to a day of transport-inspired activities to launch our new topic ‘On The Move’. Children got to have a go at fixing a car tyre, experience what it might be like to be on board an aircraft and found out more about train safety with a visitor from Network Rail.

12 ways to ask your child “So how was school today?” (Without asking “So how was school today?”)

  8. Tell me something good that happened today?
  9. What did you play outside?
  10. Who is the funniest person in your class? How is he/she funny?
  11. What was your favourite part of the day?

Respectful Learning Community

This half-term we are focusing as a whole school on ‘developing a respectful learning community’. In assembly yesterday, the children voted for the growth mindset crowns that they felt would be most relevant for this focus. The children chose challenge, teamwork, creativity and reflection! 

Anti-Bullying Curriculum Day

This Friday we hosted another whole-school curriculum day, which focused on anti-bullying. All children from reception to year 5 participated in an exciting range of creative activities. It was great to see so many children from different year groups working together.
