December 2020

This term has certainly had its challenges but we couldn’t be more proud of how the children have coped and how flexible they have been. We have been blown away by how well they are doing with their sounds and numbers and have been just like Resilient Rosa when learning their Dory words. Even with a period of self isolation, the children amazed us by being Enthusiastic Eddies when learning at home. We’ve all learnt a thing or two about using Microsoft Teams that’s for sure! On our return to school, we held a ‘Big Birthday Bash’ for all the birthday parties missed this year where we sent out invites, decorated our classrooms and played party games…we even got to enjoy some special birthday cake!

We may not have been able to perform our Nativity in the traditional way but we’ve certainly got into the Christmas spirit and spread some Christmas sparkle. Year R have had a full Christmas fun week where we’ve worn festive outfits and completed lots of fun activities. We even had a personalised message and gift from Santa himself!

We wish all our families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We look forward to seeing you all in 2021!



 Autumn 2020

Wow, what a brilliant start to school life the children have had. We have been learning all the new school routines and exploring the areas of our learning environment. We are busy getting to know our classmates and making new friendships. We are becoming more and more independent making choices in our Discovery Time. Over the past few weeks, we have learnt about the Sarisbury Charter Rules as well as our CREW characters.


With the shorter days and the change in weather we have been learning all about Autumn and seasonal changes. A particular highlight has been donning our wellies and going on Welly Walks in the school grounds. We have been experts at listening for sounds in the environment and are now starting to learn our Phase 2 phonics sounds.


We are sure the children are looking forward to a well deserved rest at half term. We are looking forward to many more learning adventures next half term.
