Traditional Tale Project
A big well done to all of the fantastic castles that were made during the Easter holiday for our new topic! Your castles look fantastic and are a great addition to our classrooms!
Palm Sunday Assembly
Reception welcomed Holy Week by depicting the events of Palm Sunday in an assembly for the whole school. A big well done to all of the children in Reception and thank you to the parents who supported our assembly.
Our Lenten Fundraising
During the season of Lent we have discussed how prayer, fasting and almsgiving is an important part of our preparation. English Martyrs' School are raising money for Father Hudson's Care and this year Reception baked breads from around the world to sell.
We raised a huge £190! Thank you to all of the children and parents for their support.
Ash End House Farm
This term we visited Ash End House Farm. We had a wonderful day with Farmer Ruth learning all about the different farm animals she takes care of.
A visit from Tropical Inc.
This week Steve the animal man came to visit us with his weird but wonderful creatures! This first hand experience with these unusual animals was very special and one which we will never forget!
In preparation for Easter we have thought carefully about how prayer is important during the season of Lent. We offered prayers to God during a class liturgy.
World Book Day 2018
We had a brilliant day celebrating our love of books! We came to school dressed as characters from our favourite stories.
Mad Science Day
Reception had a super day taking part in lots of science experiments to celebrate British Science Week. We created exploding volcanoes, self-inflating balloons, rainclouds and melted ice using different resources.
Chinese New Year
This week we have enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year. We discussed how Chinese New Year is celebrated around the world and took part in our own celebrations at school. We created our own dragons, tasted traditional Chinese food and danced to traditional Chinese music.
We enjoyed celebrating pancake day by making and eating pancakes in the food technology hub.
We look after God's creation
In our RE lessons we have been learning about the Creation Story. We appreciate our beautiful world that God created and have made a promise to look after it to the best of our ability.
