Spring Term message from Mrs Mason: 

During spring term we will be spending time learning in both our inside and outside learning environments.  We will be learning all about Starry Nights, Dinosaurs, Rainbows and Puddles and Ready Steady Grow. We will spend lots of time outdoors, including learning in our Forest School area and natural school grounds. Phonics and Early reading is a key priority for us at St Thomas' and we will be continuing to nurture a love of books and reading fluency using all the sounds and words we have learnt so far. If you have any questions, please ask. We are really looking forward to sharing the next part of your child's learning journey.

Caring for the birds

Reception Teacher (C.Mason) on: Reception Blog



Reception class have been caring for our school wildlife today by making bird feeders. We used honey, loops and seeds to make bird doughnuts and bird pizzas. The children have to get busy with their fingers 'squeezing, threading, twisting and smearing'. We are really looking forward to our RSPB Big School Bird Watch next week to see which birds are visiting our school grounds this winter.

Did you know that the word dinosaur means terrible lizard?! Well today Reception class have had a friendly lizard come and help us learn all about scales, spines, plates and horns. We have been learning about armoured dinosaurs and animals. Can you spot Mr Bean helping us with our reading and phonics too?! We really enjoyed having a scaly guest.

Reception Teacher (C.Mason) on: Reception Blog

Our children have been learning all about 'People who help us'. They have enjoyed learning about the work of the Police, Ambulance service, Firefighters, Dentists and Doctors.  They LOVED dressing up in the clothes and sitting in the police car too!
