Welcome to the Wonderful World of Class R!

We wanted to send you a personal welcome to our Shakespeare family from the EYFS staff and children in Classes RH and RT.

We have received our cohort list and we are really looking forward to meeting, and getting to know our new little lovelies and their wonderful families. Our current Reception class children are also so excited to meet the new boys and girls and help them to settle in when they get here.

Lots of love, 

The Class R Team and children  x x x

Sidney the Silly Who Only Eats 6

Author M. W. Penn reads her award winning book combining poetry and number comparison, Sidney the Sill Who Only Eats 6, and children enjoy a good book and also learn to decide when a number is greater than or less than another. The frolicking, tongue twisting rhyme is brought to life by the beautiful illustrations of Sarah Tommer.

❀🐻❀🐻❀ GRANDPARENTS AFTERNOON TEA 2024 ❀🐻❀🐻❀ We had THE best afternoon with our families, celebrating people who we love 'beary beary' much! We wrote invitations to invite our grandparents into school to make some special memories with us. We made a banner, bear bunting and some lovely beary art! The choir came to sing for us and their Take That medley was incredible. We aspire to be just like the boys and girls in the choir when we get older. A wonderful afternoon of love and laughter was had by all! Thank you so much for the lovely comments we received from our guests!

We are reaching for the stars in Class R every day, but today on Aspirations Day, we thought about what job we would like to do when we are older!⭐🌟

We rose to the STEM challenges this week using our clever brains for problem solving!

Goldilocks And The Three Bears | Fairy Tales | Gigglebox

When Goldilocks sneaks into the three bears' cottage, it seems there's no one home. So she helps herself to their porridge; she sits in their chairs; and she lies down in their beds. But then the bears return home from their walk! What will happen next ?!!

In Maths we have been thinking about time, our day and night and day. We have learned some new words too. We know what nocturnal and diurnal animals are!πŸ¦‘πŸ–πŸ¦” We have been busy practising our drawing, writing and word building too!πŸ”
