Nursery Rhyme Recital
We found a lot of characters from nursery rhymes in our book, Each Peach Pear Plum. Each class decided to learn a nursery rhyme. We performed the rhyme in front of our parents, our friends. Later went to perform at pre-school in front of children and the staff. We were proud of what we had learnt and felt brave performing in front of many new faces.

Autumn 2 Displays
We went to the library this week. It was a great opportunity for us to learn about all the excellent resources within the library and how using these can make a real difference to our learning. We had lots of fun meeting the librarian, listening to stories and choosing books. Now we will be encouraging our parent to take us!
Wow…the children have settled into their new environment so well! The children have been making good progress in all areas of their learning. They are already enjoying being part of Downside Primary School and joining in with the daily routines of Reception learning. We hope you enjoy looking at some pictures of them having fun. There will be many more to come.
