A full boarding and day school for boys and girls from Nursery to 16

Reception's First Day

Reception's First Day

Our adventure in reception began with great excitement and enthusiasm. The children were pleased to see their old friends from nursery and make new ones too. Fortunately the sun was shining and we were straight outside to build an amazing sculpture with boxes and drapes (along with anything else that was at arm’s length). The sculpture was gradually developed throughout the day as all the children contributed. 

We sang the lining up song and blew Miss Dawson’s socks off when we all lined up so smartly for lunch; we were ready for a delicious meal of sweet and sour chicken with rice followed by fruit and chocolate cake. In the afternoon we built a forest for the dinosaurs and then gave them a bath as we thought they must be far too hot in the sun! We read the story ‘Harry and the dinosaurs go to school’ and made ourselves a bed as we were all exhausted. Fortunately it was almost home time. A fantastic first day to start the term!
