Welcome to Year R!

Dear Year R Parents,

Thank you for all your support throughout this year. Can you believe that this week is the last week before the Summer holidays begin.

Thankyou to those of you who have sent in photos and learning through Evidence Me. It made us smile to see what the children had been up to whilst at home.

We will miss having the children in Caterpillar and Ladybird Class. We wish them all the best for September in their  new year 1 class.

Year 1 staff have put together short videos, as we were unable to have out normal transition days.

We hope you all have a wonderful summer! See you all in September.

What's Been Happening?

Last term the chick eggs arrived. the children were super excited and could not wait till they hatched!

Every day we were asked ‘How many more sleeps?’

To our surprise one chick made an appearance a day early. The children were in amazement to see this baby chick chirping away in the incubator.  The children even had the rare opportunity to watch a chick pip away at its egg and hatch out, usually chicks hatch when it is quiet- now you can imagine how the next half an hour went – In complete silence with the children in absolute awe!

We set up a camera to be able to watch some more eggs hatch into the evening.  We will hopefully be able to get this uploaded soon. Talk to your child abut the hatching process and the differences in what the chicks look like when they hatch out of the egg to what they look like a short while later.
