Making marmalade,teamwork and measuring

This week the children were set a special task. They had to work as a team and figure out a way to rescue Paddington. The children were amazing and it was lovely to see how they worked together to solve the problem. We also got a bit messy and sticky when following a recipe to make marmalade. The children enjoyed grating and squeezing the oranges and even got to have a taste of their marmalade creation. We had lots of happy faces! In maths this week the children were measuring teddy bears and bear paws. They were very enthusiastic and confidently counted and compared the size of the bears.




Phonics, Fun and Outdoor Play


This week we have started our first set of sounds. The children have been amazing at remembering these and finding them within different words. Please ask the children what sounds they have learnt and get them to show you the sound and the action that goes with it. We hope you enjoy writing the sounds over the weekend using the homework sheet. See if they can spot any of the sounds around at the weekend too.

The children have had an opportunity to explore outside, they have all enjoyed playing on the bikes. Have a look at what we have been up to…

Settling in

We are so proud of how all the new Reception children have settled in to school. They have taken all the new routines in their stride and have been busy making friends and getting to know their new teachers and classrooms. We are really excited to have started our first topic ‘Paddington’s Journey to School’, and the children have enjoyed telling us about their favourite parts of the film. Thank you to everybody who has brought in their summer scrap books, they have been a fantastic talking point for the children.



Trip- update

Cotswold wild life park trip

Please note if you are eligible for a packed lunch provided by the school on the day of our school trip you would have had a form attached to the back of your trip letter. If you did not have this letter attached you will need to provide your child with a packed lunch.

In the event of hot weather please send your child in non-school uniform but wearing their Lakeside school PE t-shirt.

Thank you in advance


What a lovely first week back

We hope you have all had a relaxing and enjoyable half term. We cannot believe we are entering the last half term! We have had a busy first week back! The children wrote a recount of what they did over the holiday and they have learnt about time. Alongside this we have had very loud and musical classrooms as the children have been exploring different musical instruments! We have also opened our new role play areas that have turned into a Theatre! It has been amazing to watch the children sing and dance! A lovely first week back.
