Monday 1st November 2021 - INSET DAY.

Term 2 begins on Tuesday 2nd November 2021. 

Week beginning 18.10.21


This week the children have been learning the story of The Little Red Hen. They have enjoyed retelling the story, acting it out with props and puppets. The children had great fun making dough, kneading it and creating their own bread roll, we hope they tasted as good as they looked! On Friday the children met with their year six buddies.  They took along their school books to read to them and they also took stories from the book corner for the year six buddies to read to them. It was lovely to speak with you all at parents evening and share how your child is settling into school. We hope you have a wonderful half term break and look forward to seeing you all in term 2 for an exciting term 2 heading to Christmas! Best wishes, the EYFS Team. heart



This week we have been reading the story of The Little Red Hen. Tomorrow the children will make bread rolls. Children will bring their roll home and will not be eating anything at school. Ingredients are: bread flour, salt, caster sugar, sunflower oil and yeast. 

Date for your diary:


Winston’s Wish Wear Wellies Non-Uniform Day on Friday 22nd October 2021. Make a splash to raise some cash! The money raised will go to Winston’s Wish. A fantastic charity supporting children who have experienced the bereavement of a parent or sibling. We ask the children to come into school in non-uniform perhaps wearing wellies or wear a welly badge. We suggest a donation of £1.00. There will be an Eduspot page set up where donations can be given electronically as well as a collection in school. More information can be found on the school newsletter.

Week beginning 11.10.21


This week the children have been learning about Harvest. We were very proud of them for taking part in the Harvest service, especially being in front of lots of grown ups and KS1, sharing their work and singing Cauliflowers Fluffy and Conkers. In class we have been reading lots of rhyming stories to encourage the children to listen for words that sound the same. The children have been engaging in rhyming activities and have been singing lots of nursery rhymes to support this. We have also been doing lots of counting and singing number rhymes too. The children have had great fun outside using the 'Play Pod' and going on the trim trail.  At the end of the week we had our stay and play sessions. It was lovely to welcome lots of you in to play and to explore the classroom. Thank you for coming in, we look forward to planning the next one.



Our class photos will be published in the Bristol Post 'First Class Supplement' tomorrow (14.10.21)

Week beginning 4.10.21


This week the children have been learning two songs in class and during hymn practice to take part in the Harvest service next week. Outside the children have been using beanbags to develop their balance and coordination skills. They have also been learning to aim for a target using an underarm throw and technique.

The children thoroughly enjoyed meeting their year six buddies and having their photograph taken together to be displayed in class.  We are planning another opportunity to meet and spend time together before the end of term.



Today we held our welcome to the year meeting for Reception. We have uploaded the information we shared. It can be found under the letters and information tab. If you have any questions or require clarification about anything please come and see us.


We are planning to take our class photos for the Bristol Post tomorrow (5.10.21). We will try and take it first thing while the children are fresh and hair is still styled! smiley

Week beginning 27.9.21


The children have completed their first full week at school. They have enjoyed getting to know all their class friends. They have been to the hall for lunch, Collective Worship and Hymn Practice. In class they have been exploring sound through body percussion and the use of musical instruments.

On Tuesday 5th October 2021 we are planning on taking the class photos which will be sent to the Bristol Post for their 'First Class Supplement'. If you have not already returned your child's consent slip, please do so by the end of the day on Monday 4th October 2021. If we have not heard from you we will not be able to include your child in the photograph. The weekly school newsletter has been added to our letters and information tab. 

Week beginning 20.9.21


This week the children have been exploring environmental sounds. They went outside in the sensory garden to listen for sounds and then had great fun playing the drums outdoors using sticks. The children also spent time looking around the new spiritual garden, taking their shoes and socks off to walk on the sensory path and also sat quietly watching and listening to the water feature. In PE the children worked with beanbags to develop their balancing skills. They are becoming more familiar with school routines and we look forward to all the children getting to know one another when they are in full time next week.


We have added the weekly school newsletter to the letters and information page. Please can any outstanding letters that were handed out during the school visit be returned as soon as possible, thank you. 

Week beginning 13.9.21


It has been lovely welcoming the children to St Anne's, they look so smart in their uniform. They have settled in very well during their first week at school. The children have enjoyed exploring their classroom and getting to know class friends. They have been on a walk around the school both outside and inside. They particularly enjoyed finding out where older friends, family members and buddies are within the school. All the children painted a picture of themselves to create a wonderful display for anyone visiting the school. Take a look at their fabulous work on our main class page! 


Whilst we are still gathering all your contact information we have added the weekly school newsletter to our letters and information page. Once everything is set up the newsletter will be emailed to you. We have also added our 'welcome to the year meeting' letter for your information. It would be great to see as many of you as possible, however we appreciate some of you may be working. We will add the information to our page for you and should you wish to ask us anything about EYFS please come and see us.
