Highfield St. Matthew's
Church of England Primary School


In our RE lessons we are enjoying listening to stories that Jesus told. In the picture the children are trying to build houses on rocks like the wise man.

We are enjoying playing in the vets role play area.  

We are making good progress in phonics. Practise makes perfect. 


We found a mysterious egg. We waited and waited and it finally hatched. We have a baby dinosaur in our Reception classroom. Wow!


We often discuss the moral and social aspect of stories. We like to listen to stories from the Bible. We heard about how David stood up to the big bully Goliath. He was very brave and he knew that God would look after him. We talked about times when we have been brave. We also talked about the horrible effects of bullying and what we should do if we feel like we are being bullied.

So much child initiated learning just from adding some sticks and logs to the construction area. The children came up with some fantastic ideas and worked together to solve problems. They made a camp fire, they rubbed sticks together to try and make a spark. They toasted pretend marshmallows and used the sticks as chopsticks. They also made saxophones, trumpets and drums. Happy and engaged children, loving their learning.
