Transition to Year 1!

Next half term we are going to be going to be in our new classrooms with our new teachers! It is all very exciting!

We would like you to talk with your families about any questions you might have or any thing you may want to know more about. We have talked about it in class.

Baqir says “will the work be too hard?”. – Learning in year one will be just as fun and you will be challenged as the learning in reception is now too easy for you.

Post any more questions you have and we can talk about it in class :).

A baby dragon at Oxford Grove!

During the half term holidays we had a visitor at our school. Miss Harvey checked the CCTV and saw that a small dragon had been sneaking around the school!

When we showed reception they thought it might be a baby and it might be lost!

We have been making posters to ask other children and teachers to look out for this dragon and if you see it to let us know!

Mrs Taylor has seen some dragon droppings around school so it must be somewhere!

The dragon has even been seen in Miss Harvey’s office and Mrs Day’s office!

A Life Caravan!

This week we had a very special treat! We went for a visit to the “A Life Caravan”.

We had so much fun learning about different parts of the body!

We met Harold the Giraffe and we helped him to brush his teeth, comb his hair and have a wash!

Then we did some exercise followed by a little rest under the “stars”. It was awesome!
