​​​​​​​Weekly roundup – Infant School

Discovery Plans this term 


Children in nursery are thinking about what they’d like to be when they grow up. They have been finding out about people’s jobs and when I was in there the children learnt the word “paramedic” and were talking about how they help people in the ambulance. 

Clara said, ‘When I grow up I want to be a dog walker or a vet.’ 

Leo said, ‘I would like to be a spiderman or iron man.’ 

Isabel said, ‘I would like to be a nurse.’  

Hayley described these jobs as Caring Code Superheroes! 


Reception are learning about Spring time! Their role play has become a garden centre and they have been busy finding out lots about Spring. Erin said, ‘In the springtime, flowers grow.’ 

Jackson said, ‘On the way to school I saw Cherry blossom and daffodils and we’re growing carrots in my daddy’s garden.’ 


In Key Stage 1 the Discovery title is Bath, Past and Present. We encourage the children to always share what they already know and then pose questions that they would like to find out more about. 

Here are some things they have already discovered. 

Michal said, ‘We learnt that King Henry VIII tried to destroy the Abbey but Queen Elizabeth 1st gave some money so that they could fix it.’ 

Marley said, ’In the past the signs were hanging down from the shops and cafés and not written on them. They got very dusty.’ 


The children in year 2 have also started to learn sewing. You can see pictures here


Paralympian sprinter Katrina Hart 


We are so excited to be welcoming Katrina into school today. Children have been arriving in the sports kits with their sponsor ship forms. Photos form the day will also be on the website but in anticipation of the day this is what some children have said. 

Zac said, ‘I really love football. It’s good because it gives you energy and you can get trophies and medals.’ 

Elliot said, ‘I am looking forward to doing the exercises because I have very gripping shoes!’ 

As your child leaves school today they should be able to tell you a little about Katrina and talk about the skills, determination and resilience that is needed to become an athlete of Olympic standards. 


Opal shout out 


The children have asked for more dressing up clothes that can be used during play and lunchtimes. If you have any old dressing up that you feel would be suitable, please can you drop it off at the Infant main office. These clothes will be used outside and will live in the Playpod so they are likely to become well worn and with a shorter shelf life. 

Can I also remind you to please bring in wellies for your child as Pauls Garden and the Willow Garden still get muddy. If you don’t have wellies, please don’t worry, just come and ask your child’s teacher as we do have some spares. 




A few years ago, prior to Covid, we reflected on Birthday’s and how to best help celebrate them during the school day. Historically parents used to send in sweets/ chocolates or cakes for their child to hand out. We were finding that this could mean that throughout the year there would be 30 times when sweet treats were going home and therefore the treat was becoming the norm rather than a special treat. It also put pressure on some people to provide the sweet treat on their child’s birthday.  


We have a Healthy School award and we decided to ask that parents and carers do not bring in sweet treats to hand on their child’s birthday. Instead, we have a birthday chair that your child sit’s on throughout the day, the class sing happy birthday and in celebration assembly on a Friday all children who have had birthday’s that week stand up and we celebrate by singing and acknowledging their birthday. We thank you for your support and if you are any questions, please do grab me on the playground at drop off or drop me an email.  




Thank you for all the donations that have come in to school. The generosity of the community has been overwhelming. We are having to pause donations at the moment so that our volunteers can organise what we have already received. Click here for more information.
