P.E Days.

The days that the reception classes do P.E and therefore the children can come into school in P.E Kit are as follows:

0BM – Monday and Wednesday

0D – Monday

0SM – Wednesday.

Literature Week – Day Four

The children had fun re-telling the story of Rosie’s Walk using different settings and characters. Perhaps you can practise your story telling at home too?

Here are some pictures of the brilliant Rosie’s Walk classroom displays.

Literature Week – Day Three

The children did some fantastic work today completing a book review of ‘Rosie’s Walk’.  Maybe they can tell you about their favourite part of the story.

Here are some more pictures of the children doing the treasure hunt.

Literature Week – Day Two

The children were delighted to go on a treasure hunt around the school today. They solved clues which led to a treasure box filled with new books and chocolate eggs.

We also discussed the story of ‘Rosie’s Walk’ and painted pictures using a similar colour palette to that of the book.

We acted out the story by making masks and found lots of ways to retell the story.


Literature Week – Day One

The children love the book Rosie’s Walk. We shared the story and talked about the order of events. The children are using their imaginations to make Rosie’s Walk 3D scene pictures. More creative activities are planned for the remainder of the week.

Red Nose Day

The children thoroughly enjoyed Red Nose Day.  They all looked fantastic in their costumes.  Here are a few pictures.

Census Minibeast Count.

Reception had a fantastic time on Monday counting all the minibeasts they could find around the wild area and Little Wasps.  Here are a few pictures.

World Book Day

We had a lovely day on World Book Day and thank you to all those that dressed up at home.

We are three classes based in Little WASPS. We play and we learn using the inside and outside environment. We have a dedicated play area outside where we explore using all our senses. During the year we make new friends, have fun and we find out about ourselves, dinosaurs, people who help us, growth, animals and traditional tales.

Class 0BM – Mrs Bevan and Mrs Markall supported by Mrs Geddis and Miss Payne. Mrs Bevan loves to spend time in her garden (or on the golf course) while Mrs Markall enjoys singing and dancing.

Class 0SM – Mrs Schwartz and Mrs Markall supported by Mrs Jones. Mrs Schwartz has returned to WASPS following her maternity leave.  She is very artistic and musical and enjoys exploring outside.

Class 0D – Mr Dismore supported by Mrs Awramenko, Mrs Beech and Mrs Waite. Mr Dismore loves the outside and is a keen sportsman.
