Egg-citing Science!


Today we have been Dino Rescuers! Some of the Dino's escaped our classroom and ended up frozen. Our job was to rescue the Dinosaurs using different materials. We had sand, water, tin foil, woolly gloves, a hairdryer and salt. We made predictions and worked in groups using the different materials to rescue the Dino's in the fastest time. Have a look at our photos!



We have enjoyed exploring fossils this week and even had our own archaeological dig. We had lots of fun creating our own fossils out of clay and tried hard to use the different tools to recreate the bones of dinosaurs. Take a look at our photos! 

Welcome back and Happy New Year to you all!


We are very excited to be starting our new project of 'Dinosaurs and Animals'. The children have already shared lots of ideas about dinosaurs and animals and we have thought about things that we would like to find out.

P.E. day is still on a Tuesday, however, some weeks we will be taking the children outside so please ensure that your child has appropriate outdoor kit. It is school policy that no jewellery is worn for P.E. due to health and safety reasons.

Reading books are changed on a Tuesday and a Friday. If your child needs to change their book, please sign and date the reading record to show that you have read with your child.


Thank you for all your continued support.

The Reception Team

Children in Need


The children had lots of fun today raising money for Children in Need. They enjoyed making a Pudsey biscuit, colouring, dressing up in their own clothes and had a special Big Tuck. What a fantastic day we had!

Memorial Walk


Reception took part in their Memorial Walk on Thursday 15th November. We walked around the perimeter of the playground three times. We are hoping the children will raise lots of money from this.

Our Bonfire Extravaganza!


As part of our new project 'Festivals and Celebrations' we had a Bonfire in Forest School. We had lots of fun on Friday at our Bonfire! Mr Herbert did a great job keeping the Bonfire going whilst we had our special Bonfire lunch. We enjoyed eating our dinner and puddings by the heat of the fire. We waved our special word sparklers in the air that we had made during the week. We really enjoyed ourselves and it was a great start to our new project.

Bonfire Extravaganza


As part of our entry point for our new project 'Festivals and Celebrations',  we will be having a mini bonfire outside in the Forest School area (weather permitting). The children will take part in fun activities throughout the day and will have a special 'bonfire' themed lunch. Please could you send your child to school with a warm coat, hats, scarves and gloves and appropriate footwear.

Thanks for all of your continued support.


People Who Help Us Day


We had lots of fun learning all about different people who can help us. We learnt about firefighters, doctors, vets, dentists, paramedics and road safety. We took part in lots of different activities throughout the day. We all had a super time , take a look at the photos.

Number Fun!

We have really enjoyed learning about numbers to five this half term. We have been watching Numberblocks, using tens frames, whole-part-part diagrams and lots more! Take a look at the photos to see how much we love maths.

Welcome to Reception!


A big welcome to all our new Reception children and well done for settling so quickly into Timberley!

We hope you all had a fantastic Summer!


Our Reception children have been having a lovely time exploring their new learning environment and getting to know their teachers. We have had so much fun this week and we have lots of exciting things coming up soon so keep checking here to find out more!


We have sent your child home with a reading book this week for them to share with you. We would appreciate it if you could take some time to read regularly with your child and then write a small comment in the reading diary to let us know how they got on. Please encourage the children to talk about the pictures and the characters in the story and to support you with this we will be sending home a book mark with ideas and prompts. Our book changing days are Tuesday and Friday, please encourage your child to put their reading book and reading diary into the book change box on these days as they come into the classroom.


Our PE day is Tuesday so please ensure your child has a PE kit in school and that all of their items are clearly labelled with their name. Children with earrings must either remove them on this day or come to school with plasters covering their earrings for health and safety reasons. Also a polite reminder that it is school policy to wear stud earrings only.


Thank you for your support.
