Welcome back!

We are now in the Spring term and are enjoying our first few weeks back at school.


We have lots of fun activities planned relating to our topics 'Fairytales' and 'Traditional Tales.


We will fill this page with exciting class news, pictures of things that we have done, and website ideas for you to use at home!


We also post lots of photos and updates on our Facebook page. Please add us at Parkdale Rbayand Rholly. 

Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your teacher know!

Have you seen the Children's Zone? Play games, and visit some cool websites.

We love reading! 

We love reading in reception. We have story time every day at 3 o'clock as well as enjoying stories in our cosy book corner throughout the day. 



We go to the library every Friday and choose a book to take home and share with our families and friends. 




We have a reading challenge board to encourage sharing our school reading book at home. For every 10 reads we are able to choose a prize from our class treasure box.

Houses for New Intake 2017-18

We've started the new term with our people who help us topic. Today we had an exciting visitor....

We have started this term by learning about The Gingerbread man.

Some of us went to year 2 to do some special writing about the gingerbread man story. The room even smelt of gingerbread, delicious!

We also made our very own gingerbread men! Talking about the ingredients required and the method to make them.

We also used the computers in the ICT suite to create our own pictures of the cheeky character.


We are looking forward to learning about The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs.

Water Bottles angel

Please remember that children should bring a water bottle in to the class which they can drink over the day. Thank you


Reading Bookscheeky

We aim to change each child's reading book once a week, however this is depending on events and timetabled activity during the week. We ask that your child brings their book in EVERYDAY to ensure we can read with them and issue them a new book. 


Library Books laugh

On FRIDAY your child will have the opportunity to change their library book. Please ensure they bring their book in to avoid disappointment.


PE Kits frown

Both Holly and Bay have PE on WEDNESDAYS AND FRIDAYS.
Children should bring their kit and keep it on their pegs for the week. Please can we also ask all earrings (and any other jewellery items) are removed on these days prior to school.
