We’re going on an elf hunt….

We had great fun yesterday morning looking for elves! Our resident elf, Elvis, tricked us all by hiding himself and some friends in the Nursery gardens.
More fun today with our Christmas party. Don’t forget for those children who only do half day, please come in 10.30 until 2.30 so you don’t miss out on the fun!




Christmas Cheer

Christmas preparations are in full swing! We’ve been very busy baking cakes, making cards, tree decorations and placemats which of course involved lots of paint & sparkle! We even managed to find time to sing some Christmas songs and play our musical instruments.

We hope to see some of you on Monday evening for carols around the tree and don’t forget to wear your Christmas jumpers tomorrow!





Halloween Fun Run

The children made a super effort today both with their costumes and their running skills! All of the children managed at least two laps of the field and those here all day actually did it twice!
Thank you to those who have already sent in your sponsorship money, we’d be grateful if the remaining forms and money could be sent in as soon as possible.
Thank you for joining in the fun and for helping to raise funds for our new outdoor area. We’re very excited as work commences on Monday!











Our first weeks in Nursery

A very warm welcome to our first Nursery blog of the school year. The children have settled really well into Nursery life and we are very impressed with how they’ve learned our rules and routines. In fact they’ve done so well that they’ve already filled the marble jar for making so many good choices. They all voted today for their choice of reward and will be receiving their ice cream treat after PE tomorrow.

Our activities are now in full swing! We’ve impressed Mr Davis with our PE skills (and also the rest of the school with how well we can walk down the corridor), started our weekly cooking by picking the apples from our trees to make some apple crumbles, have been on an autumn walk to see the changes and collect autumn treasure for our table and also started weekly French lessons with Madame Jolliffe. They were ‘tres bien’!
Thank you to those who were able to attend the Phonics workshop, we hope you found it useful. For those unable to make it, handouts have been placed in your child’s drawer. Please check your child’s drawers daily for letters home and of course for their lovely art work. Please don’t be concerned if some have more than others, we can assure you that they are all busy learning even if they’re not putting pencil to paper!
This week we will be celebrating Harvest Festival. The Reception classes will be joining us to say thank you for all of the food we eat and for the kind donations for Bicester Food Bank.
Please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of staff if you have any concerns or queries.
