Foundation Stage



In Reception, our parents came in to our classes for a growth mindset morning, where we learned about how our brains develop and how we can always improve what we do.

By the end of the session, we had all been able to put this into practise.


Reception have been really busy this half term. Jessica Spanyol, the author came to teach Nursery and Reception how to create a story character. There was also a trip to the train station, where the children learned all about safe travel before we got on the train for our own Magic Train Ride. Finally, Alan McCormack, a player from Luton Town Football Club, came to join in some Literacy and Football Training sessions with some coaches from the club.


Reception have been exploring reading in different ways and different settings.

We were lucky enough to visit the local library where we heard a story read by a librarian. We even had time to have a good look around at some of the books they had.

To finish the half term, we had a series of open mornings when we played reading games with our parents/carers.



Reception children have been fantastic settling into their new classrooms. They have enjoyed exploring both inside and outside, playing with the equipment. Well done Year R for a super start to the term.


Foundation Stage Library Visit

Reception had a visit from the librarian at Leagrave library. The librarian shared some stories with the children. It was very exciting. All children were very pleased to receive a special book to keep and take home to share with their families.

Bluebell December

In Bluebell nursery this term we have been learning about Celebrations. The children learnt that a birthday is celebrating the day they were born. As our class bear was going to be four, just like the children, we had a birthday party. The children baked cakes, wrote cards and lists, in preparation for the day and to support their learning.

November 2017

Reception classes held a bedtime story event on Wednesday 22nd December. Children were invited to come to school at 5pm in their pjs and listen to stories being told in their classroom. All children and adults had hot chocolate and biscuits together. Thank you to all the families that came and made the evening a real success. 

September 2017

We have settled well into our new Reception classes and have enjoyed exploring our surroundings. In English we have been learning and retelling the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We had fun making puppets and using props. We even got to make porridge just the like Bears had in small bowls, middle-sized bowls and large bowls.
