Autumn Term

12 September 2016

A wonderful start to the new school year.

All the children have settled into Reception and are on their way to becoming independent learners. They are ready to learn at carpet time and  are being good friends to each other.  They are deciding to have their snack (milk and fruit) when they are hungry and are very grown up at lunchtime, choosing their meal and carrying  their tray to the table.   The children enjoyed their first PE session with our sports coach Terry. Please can you ensure your child has a full PE kit in a drawstring bag for next Tuesday. Please try to get into the habit of bringing book bags into school everyday.   Well done Reception!


St James School 50th Celebration

The children have enjoyed celebrating the schools birthday by hosting their own mass in our outdoor willow church. ‘Fr Paul’ read from the bible, blessed the other children and invited his friends to sing twinkle twinkle as the collection basket was passed round and music was played on the keyboard.

Other children enjoyed sharing a birthday tea.


We listened to the story of St James casting his net to the other side of the boat. The children built a boat with the crates and counted how many fish they thought James might have caught as they played with the fish.
