Summer Term 2017 Overview

Fun in the Sun......

Aston Hall - A glimpse into the Past and Dressing Up!

Chinese New Year

In Reception we have enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year. We worked together to design and decorate our beautiful Chinese dragon, tasted different Chinese sauces and created Chinese inspired celebration music. On Friday we ended our celebrations by performing our Dragon dance in the playground. 

2D Shape Pizzas!

2D Shape Pizzas! 1
Reception have been busy learning all about the properties of 2D shapes. We decided that we wanted to put our knowledge to the test and create our very own shape pizzas! They were very tasty!


In RE we have discussed the idea of belonging. At English Martyrs' School we believe that we all belong to the family of God. Through Baptism we recognise the importance of this family. The children can identify the symbols of Baptism and understand that by lighting a candle we are acknowledging God's presence.
Autumn Term Website updates

During the Autumn term we have enjoyed learning all about people who help us. We have had lots of visits from some very special people who have told us all about the important jobs they do!
We would like to than PCSO Rachel Ryan, Nurse Rachel, Nurse Panesar and the Fire Fighters from Highgate Fire Station for taking their time to talk to us.


People who Help us

Having Fun in our Wonderful Playhouse

Reception would like to say a very big THANK YOU to everybody at “The Big Game Hunters” for donating the beautiful Redwood Lodge! We have had so much fun creating stories in our new house and can’t wait to use it throughout the year. We would also like to thank our parents for their very generous donations for Reception’s mile run. Thank you!


Big Game Hunters have a whole range of different wooden playhouses including this one.

You can find them here. 

This Summer Term we are going to learn about the theme 'Once Upon a Time in a Land Far, Far Away '.  Please refer to the Summer Term work plan below for ideas of activities you can carry out together at home.
