Go Velo is delighted to work with the children from Reedley, helping pupils to learn how to ride a bike and to live healthy lifestyles. Children are going to be taking part in training sessions within school, on the playground using a balance bike. For each session, there will be two fully qualified instructors present along with your child's class teacher and the support staff. All instructors are fully insured, first aid certifed and hold current DBS checks.


Reception teachers and Year One teachers would like to invite you to our Nativity play: "The First Christmas". There will be two showings on Monday 17th December at 1:30pm and Wednesday 19th December at 9.30am. You will be allocated two tickets per family. Please contact your child's class teacher if an additional ticket is required but please note these will only be available if there are any spare spaces, we cannot guarantee a third ticket. Please see your class teacher at the end of the day for your tickets. 

Please could you bring in a black top and black trousers/leggings for our Nativity play: "The First Christmas". Please ensure your child has their name written inside both of these items of clothing. Please give your outfit to your class teacher in a labelled bag by 12th December ready for our school performance.

Our new class pets.

Children have shown lots of interest in mini beasts. We have been digging up our old flowers ready to plant some vegetables. The children were amazed to find 4 caterpillars. We handled them so carefully and put them and some worms in our bug hotel. We wrote letters to Mrs Bell to ask her if we could possibly get a class pet. Mrs Bell enjoyed reading our letters and she said yes! We researched how to look after snails. We got a special package. We excitedly opened it up and it was a snail tub with a snail inside. Over the weekend Miss Mackenzie visited Lydia and brought home another snail. We all choose a name for the snails and then had a class vote to decide on the final names. The butterfly class named their snail Rocket and the ladybird class named their snail Rainbow. A few days later we discovered a new baby snail and we cannot wait for it to get as big as Rocket and Rainbow.


In Maths children has lots of fun learning about weight, they were able to use the language of weight when they were playing outside and discussing the of two buckets on our scales in the nature kitchen.


In Literacy this week children have been busy looking at different space objects. Children have been talking about what they already know and what they would like to find out about space. Children explored inflatable planets, model rockets and books about space. We will be exploring the children's questions about space over the next few weeks. We are so proud of how well the children used their phonics knowledge.


Exploring the great outdoors

Following children's intrests we decided to experiment building a moat in the sand pit. This involved children using their gross motor skills to dig a large hole in the sand and built on their team working skills. Children had to choose the correct tool they thought was going to work the best. Children got to watch the effect of pouring water into sand and experimented by touching, moulding and stamping into the wet sand, they then realised that when standing on it they started to sink into the sand. To further the children's learning we asked the children if they thought the same would happen if they did it in the mud. We experimented this in the mud focusing on sinking and floating. Miss Broadbent and Mrs Ashworth enjoyed getting very wet and muddy with the children too!smiley
