We had a very special visitor at our Early Years Christmas breakfast this morning.... Father Christmas! He came to see all the children and we sang a lovely song for him from our Nativity. The children, parents and teachers had a fantastic morning.
We had our first 'Stay and Play' session of the year in Reception. The focus was on developing early reading and writing through teaching phonics skills. Parents, teachers and children enjoyed learning about phonics and playing lots of fun games together.
In EYFS we have been learning all about space. The children have so far enjoyed; discovering a broken space craft in the playground, designing their own space crafts and going on lots of space hunts.
We have been really busy in Early Years this half term. Some of the activities the children have enjoyed the most are going on an Autumn hunt, learning how to do yoga and designing and making our own models in the construction area.
This half term in Early Years, we have been learning about God's World. We have also celebrated some key festivals; Diwali and Rosh Hashana. The children enjoyed setting up our RE table for quiet reflection time.

Reception were invited to enter a poetry competition. All the children who entered are going to have their poem published in a poetry book... wow!
Look at our fabulous Reception footballers at the Manchester City football tournament. We think Pep Guardiola might be choosing some of them for his team next season! Clyde was chosen as the player of the tournament overall.
