A HUGE thank you for all the lovely presents and cards that you have bought myself and the team. Your generosity has overwhelmed us all and you have made us feel truly special and valued. It has been a real honour working with your children and seeing them blossom throughout the year. They have had so much fun this year and have really enjoyed their year in Reception, and so have we! I wish them all the best as they start year one, keep up with your number, reading and writing where you can during the summer, it’s very important to exercise our brains too! 

Can you make me a promise…..? Make sure you have an absolutely fantastic summer holidays, enjoy your time together as a family and have fun! Explore and go on an adventure or two. 

You might wonder what a teacher does in the holidays, well I’ll be heading to New Zealand, where it’s actually going to be winter! And Mrs Woodthorpe is heading camping and going abroad to Ibiza too with her family. We hope you have some exciting summer plans, whether they are local or more far afield. Mrs Elfilali is heading to Morocco to go and visit her family. We’ll be back in school once the building works are all complete ready to reconstruct our classrooms for the next academic year. We have now handed over our classroom to the builders in school ready for redecorating and an extension for the third reception class next year. 

Once again many thanks from everyone in the EYFS team, it has been an absolute pleasure to teach each and every child this year. I have lots of happy memories of this year and hope you all do too. Well done Reception on a wonderful first year at ‘big school’, you have been awesome! 

Best wishes to all the children and parents, 

Miss Mason 

(P.S Sophie, I’ll return the cake box to you, I promise!)   

Our class assembly 

A humongous well done to my reception children who were ALL absolutely fabulous this morning in their assembly. I’m sure you will agree that they were great.

A massive thank you must also be said to all parents/relatives and friends who helped the children learn their lines at home. Thank you for partnering with us, a great team effort, it really does make a huge difference.

It was great to see you all come to support our assembly too and see all the hard work that they have put into producing their assembly.

I am so proud of the children and their bravery at speaking in front of our whole school which is approximately 500 in size!

Well done Reception!
