Nursery and Reception do P.E!

This week, the Nursery and Reception classes started PE with Mrs McKeever, one of Stockport’s School Sports Coordinators. This was Nursery’s first PE lesson this year!

The children enjoyed joining in with different games and had to listen extra hard to follow lots of different instructions.









Zain – Reception

Nursery & Reception go to Stockley Farm – 16th May 2018

After last year’s success, Nursery and Reception took another trip to Stockley Farm last week. The children met lots of different animals big and small, including rabbits, goats, tortoises and cows!  As well as meeting and feeding the animals, we took a ride on the farmer’s tractor trailer and had some time to enjoy the weather in the outdoor play area. See some of our highlights below:

Reception Showstopper

Fiona demonstrated her love of map-making whilst playing in the outdoor area.  She drew features linked to our story of the week, ‘Goldilocks’.  We will be following Fiona’s map to find the three bears cottage!

EYFS Forest School Trip at Nest In The Woods


Nursery and Reception classes had an incredibly fun (and incredibly wet) day at Nest in the Woods in Macclesfield on Wednesday 26th July. Despite the rain and copious amounts of mud, the children all had a brilliant time and it will be remembered by all.

Some of the activities included building fairy homes in Tinker Town, using teamwork to cross the “shark-infested custard”, exploring the adventure playground and making our own forest school medals from wood cookies. We ended the day with toasted marshmallows and a thrill-ride on the mud slide!

After a soggy and slightly sleepy coach journey back to school, all of the children were sent home for a good soak in the bath (a similar story for the teachers and parents, too!). Thank you to all of our parent and family helpers because, as always, we couldn’t have done it without you!

Take a look at some of the highlights here:

EYFS Pirate picnic party!

Ahoy there

We would like to thank our amazing Pirates and their families for making our picnic party such a success!  Huge thanks for your continued support.  I think you will agree that the pirates did a fabulous job of creating a wonderful treasure trove of delights.  These included scallywag sandwiches,  Captain Cook Cupcakes,  Treasure Map Wraps, Peg Leg Breadsticks and more.  We were relieved to see that many hungry pirates were served! Thank you  for listening to our Sea shanty finale! We hope you enjoyed it ship mates!

Take a glimpse of some high lights!
