Reception parents' stay and play session 27.01.2017

Reception visited the Science museum on the 17th, 19th and 25th of January

We have been learning about Reflections and thought it would be a great idea to visit the Science museum to further enhance our learning. We travelled to and from the museum by tube - how exciting! Please have a look at our photos below - we had a great time at the museum.

Reception Christmas Lunch 15 December 2016

​Dear Reception parents,

​A letter will follow in the New Year asking for parent volunteers to help us to create some more Story sacks-resources in the EYFS. The sessions will be very creative and lots of fun! Watch this space!

EYFS parents literacy workshops

 

On Tuesday, the 8th of November the Reception school council had their first meeting! We talked about what it means to be part of the school council and discussed why we think that Gascoigne primary school is the best school! Here are some of the responses:

 

Gascoigne Primary school is the best because....

"We have lots of lovely adults working with us in Reception"  (Arafat)

" We can learn so many new things." (Mikolaj)

"You can do lots of things like playing and it is the biggest school" (Albert)

"We can plant some flowers outside" (Jenny)

"We have a nice outside space" (Sarah)

An Early years visit to the Shaftesburys site

 

A few members of the Early Years Team were lucky enough to get a tour with Danny the building manager to look at the building developments at the Shaftesbury School Site.  There were 130 builders working on the building the day we visited and everywhere we looked the building was changing as we walked around, the builders were working from the top floor down so the top classrooms were painted and electrics and glass were already in.

 

We were very excited to see how much the building had changed in a month and got to see the classrooms, the outdoor play decks on the first and second floor and the fantastic roof playground with spectacular views of Barking.
