Reception

10th January 2020

Welcome back to all Reception children. There has been a constant chorus of chatter filled with excitement since we came back. The children have shared fantastic stories about their wonderful Christmas holiday and Santa seems to have spoiled everyone thoroughly this year!

We have written our first holiday news this week and we all tried our best and produced a fantastic first attempt. We also painted beautiful bright holiday pictures in Art to accompany our writing. The children also started in their new Read Write Inc groups.

In Maths we revised the numbers that we have previously covered and explored measuring time. The children were introduced to months of the year, days of the week, minutes in an hour and seconds in a minute. We looked at sand timers, calendars, stop watches, and clocks. The children especially enjoyed our obstacle activity in the playgroup timing their friends with a stopwatch. A weekend challenge: can you tell a parent when your birthday is?

We are expanding to GCSE!

Parents have told us they need a quality senior school alternative, so from September 2021, pupils already at Copthorne or joining in Year 7 will be able to stay with us to Year 11. Our first GCSE exams will take place in 2026. 

Join us at our next Virtual Open Morning or read about our expansion to find out more.
