Reception

Beginning School

Our new Reception children began school and have had great fun this week exploring their new surroundings and finding out all about their new classroom, making new friends and meeting the teachers.

On Thursday morning, they went to church with their families and teachers, where they met the Reverend Anne who welcomed them into the school community and presented each child with a book of bible stories.  Everyone then enjoyed refreshments back in school.

The children have settled in really well and we look forward to an exciting year together as they begin their school journey at St John’s.

Hens Sept 2017

School Hens

On Wednesday Miss Hunt introduced Reception to our school hens.  We have four hens who live in a hen house near to our outdoor classroom.  We found out lots of information about hens.  They like to sit in the sun and then they might lay an egg a day.  All of our chickens are females and are called hens.  A male chicken is called a cockerel.  Our hens like to eat worms.  They go into a little house at night where they are safe and warm.  We stroked one of the hens who is called Rosie.  Our teacher was very impressed with the questions we asked about the hens.  We hope to be able to help the school ‘Hen Team’ to clean out and look after the hens.
