Summer Term

We are ready to welcome back Reception to St James’.  Things will look a little different for now so we thought we’d share some pictures to help you prepare for the way the classroom may look.  Half of Reception will be in the usual classroom with Miss Eustace and the other half will be in the Nursery with Mrs Kinder.

What a fantastic fun day we had yesterday. Nursery and Reception loved every minute of our fun day. We were so well behaved during our zoo to you session. We bounced on our jungle bouncy castle all day long. We all shared a picnic under the shade of the trees and our final treat was to cool down with a trip to the ice cream van

We know that May is the month of Mary. We had a May procession with our prayers and flowers and placed them in our Grotto in our garden.

We had a lovely visit last week from Bishop Mark. They were very proud to show him our Grotto in the outside area. He came and prayed  the  Hail Mary with the children. It was very special.
