Bittern Class – Week 7

A great end of the half term for the Bittern class. We continued to learn new letter sounds, practised catching in P.E and got extremely messy with paint and toy cars!!

Bittern Class – Week 6

It has been a very busy week in the Bittern class. We have been thinking about healthy eating and made smoothies that were delicious. We have been looking the changing weather and went on an Autumn Walk around the grounds of the school. We finished off the week with an exciting cross country race!

Bittern and Penguin letter home – week 1

Dear Parents and Carers,                    

Friday 11th September                                                  

It has been a great start to school this week for all the children in the Bittern and Penguin classes. We are really pleased with how the children are coming into school in the morning.

Reminders and ways in which you can support us for next week:

  • Please make sure that you have signed the relevant permission pages in the diary. We are hoping to put photographs on the website next week to share their learning with you.
  • Please ensure that your child has a full water bottle in school which is named. They must not put the bottles in their book bags as they tend to leak! A small rucksack may help this.
  • We will be starting our PE lessons next week. The days are Wednesday and Friday for the Bitterns and Tuesday and Friday for the Penguins. The children need to be dressed for PE on these days. Remember to provide jogging bottoms (dark colours preferable) as it will start to get colder.
  • Please remember to order a school packed lunch if you are not providing one yourself. This is through ParentPay and is free for reception children.
  • Your child will need named wellington boots which are left in school for outdoor learning.
  • Please look out for other correspondence from the head teachers as pick and drop off arrangements may change as we adapt to the new working environment.
  • It would be really helpful if you could provide a spare set of clothing in your rucksack just in case!

We hope you have a lovely weekend with plenty of sleep – it will be an exciting but very tiring week for them!!

Zip wire, talent show and disco

On Thursday afternoon, the children had fun on the zip wire. Some showed great courage and overcame fears as they completed the challenge.

We finished of the week’s activities in style with a ‘talent’ show and a disco.


This morning, the children visited Fougères, the oldest medieval castle in Europe.

The children were taken on a very interesting tour of the castle and even got to visit a King’s throne!
