Twenty One children completed their next four reading challenges on the Share you Love of Reading Grid. They were rewarded with a special orienteering treasure hunt, colouring and dressing up treat to celebrate their love of books.

We all had fun for census day learning about Winnie the Pooh, bringing in our teddies, having a fantastic lunch and reading some amazing stories!

The children have been loving their new space topic learning all about the planets. Space morning welcomed their parents, carers, grandparents and friends to a morning of space themed fun and rocket building! Some future engineers in Reception we think!

World Book Day was lots of fun. Some of us dressed up!

We had lots of fun at our Easter craft mornings with our parents and carers! We were very creative and made a variety of products for Easter!

The EPFA provided reception children with a fun afternoon with an entertainer and mini disco for their Easter treat.

The Summer term has begun and we headed out to Upminster Windmill and the sensory garden to learn all about how flour is produced and which plants attract butterflies and bees. We had a great time on the bus and were very observant finding lots of statues, plants and parts of the windmill. Some of us even ground some flour!

Trent and Fleet have been looking after their caterpillars and watched them transform into butterflies. Here are a few pictures of them being released!

We took part in the Take 10 challenge on October 10th
