Wednesday 21st July


Happy last day everyone!!

Today is about having fun, saying goodbye to this year and hello to the coming year! Mrs Gaffiney and I are super excited to teach you all next year, we absolutely can't wait! Have a go at some of today's activities and don't forget to join everyone online for the special celebration today:



Alien Hunt

Have fun hunting for the aliens in your garden and read their names using your incredible phonics skills!

Reception Memories

It's been a strange old year, and Miss Green has really missed you all over the last week.

It would be lovely if you could draw about your favourite memories of being in her class so that

she can cherish all of your wonderful moments together. If you send them into the class one email, I will make sure that she gets them all. She would be ever so grateful!



The children in school will be having a fun afternoon today, so we didn't want you guys at home to miss out! Play games, eat ice cream, splash in the pool, build with your lego, draw pictures and chill with your grown ups - below are some activities for you to do if you are struggling for ideas!!
