What a busy learning time we have had in Reception learning about shapes! We have been astounded with how eager our little learners have been in using mathematical vocabulary to name and describe 2D and 3D shapes, and how they apply such high quality vocabulary in their independent play - wow!

What an incredible start to the school year for our Reception children! We are so proud of each and everyone of them. The children have settled in to school life so well and have impressed us every single day with their ability to make friends, meet new adults, follow new routines and explore their new classroom with enthusiasm. The classroom has such a lovely, warm, happy atmosphere - it's going to be a fantastic year, we can just feel it!

 

We feel so honoured to be a part of your children's journey in beginning their school life here at Westerhope Primary School. We look forward to teaching your children and providing a stimulating learning environment whereby your child will flourish, feel happy and safe and reach for the stars through learning.
