Kinder Reception Class


People Who Help Us

Our first topic in the Spring Term is, ‘People Who Help Us.’ We had a wonderful time visiting Chesterfield Fire Station and Hathersage Vets. Visitors to the school included: Dr Walton to tell us about being a Doctor and PC Dodsworth who told us all about being a Policeman. We also spent a fun morning with Edale Mountain Rescue, they brought their dogs with them who were very busy finding Ruth, who was in trouble in the school grounds.  Our final visit happened in the Summer term, we walked to Moorland House to sing Spring songs to the residents.


Food and Farming

During the second half of the Spring term Kinder Class enjoyed listening to, and tasting food from, Handa’s Surprise and Oliver’s Vegetables.  Farmer Duck provided lots of opportunities for role play, we loved telling the story with the masks. We had a great week when Supertato visited school. We hope you enjoy our presentation of our exciting adventures with the Superveggies and the Evil Pea!

Kinder Class are wild about Wednesdays!

We spend all of Wednesday morning outside and on alternative weeks Kinder Class go to our Forest School site in the village.

The children love exploring the woodland, making homes for insects and making dens for themselves. The children have helped to make a climbing area and see-saw. The children have enjoyed eating pancakes made by the fire and their warming cup of hot chocolate.
