Our learning journey in EYFS

Class R have been very busy this year in learning about their own learning journey. Each week we display what we have learnt on our learning journey (Class R parents may have noticed this through our windows!)

The children are so proud to share with people what they are learning and have already been referring to the journey throughout the week. 

Here is our journey from last week (week ending 8th November)

Pumpkin Parade 2019

Thank you to everyone who enjoyed this years Pumpkin Parade. Despite the rain, we still had a busy hall full of children, parents and carers looking at the wonderful creations and enjoying hot chocolate and cookies. 

Well done to all children who entered the competition and a special mention for the 3 winning pumpkins. It was very tricky to choose! 

Thank you to the PTFA for organising and running another fabulous event!

‘Souper’ chefs

As part of our Autumn topic Class R made their very own soup! We had to chop, slice, cut and peel lots of different vegetables (6 to be exact!) 

We then put the vegetables into a soup maker with some water and a few other ingredients to cook and blend, ready for us to enjoy.

After making and trying our soup, which most of us loved, we wrote about it in our writing books. 

Can you remember what vegetables we used?

300 mugs on tour!

And they’re off to The Padley Centre - jingle jangling all the way! 


and they’ve arrived - all ready to be used for lunch. Thank you everyone for your kind harvest gift - together we’ll make a real difference. 


Harvest thanks and final total


Thank you so much to everyone involved in our Harvest assembly today - what great TEAMWORK! Together, everyone gave a valued contribution which shared our special Harvest message of thanks, working together and thinking of others.

Thank you for all of the kind donations of spare mugs which will head towards The Padley Centre in the next few days; luckily our assembly was 'smashing' for many reasons and not because of broken mugs!


MONDAY - 299 mugs + one more from Mrs Mason = 300 mugs to donate!

We are thrilled to announce that 300 mugs will be heading towards The Padley Centre this week - that's a whole days worth of hot drink containers for the homeless people of Derby - thank you.


Please help us and name all of your child’s uniform.

We have an abundance of unnamed uniform in our lost property box already. Please help us to return it to the rightful owner by naming all uniform with permanent pen or name labels. Thank you. A7FE9813-D506-4028-80DA-F9D4A75EEB32

Looking for signs of Autumn

Class R had a wonderful Autumnal walk today looking for signs that Autumn is here. We put our coats and wellington boots on and headed outside. We saw the changing leaves and fallen leaves, some conkers, acorns, berries and some interesting fungi. We collected the leaves and things that were safe, but took photos of the berries and fungi as we knew not to touch them. We noticed that the field was very wet with morning dew and as we were walking we were leaving a trail! Last of all we had a race across the field back and left lots and lots of footprints. Well done Class R, a super day starting our next 2 weeks of Autumn learning.

Blue Peter Success

How wonderful to catch up with Theo and find out about his continuing Blue Peter badge collection. Here are the badges that were awarded for Theo's tennis playing and also for his cake baking to commemorate the Blue Peter tortoise retiring from the show.  Thank you for sharing Theo - which one will be next?  Toby told me that he is busy working towards his first Blue Peter badge too -   can't wait to see it Toby!
