An enriching education in a welcoming Christian environment


Welcome to the Rosefinch page

Outdoor Classroom Day - Rosefinch highlights

In Rosefinch Class, when the whole class does something amazing, as a reward we place a handful of small toys in a jar.  When the jar is full: we have a treat!


This week, the children filled the jar and as a treat they have asked to bring dress-ups into school tomorrow, Friday 26th April.  These will preferably be 'Under the Sea' themed, but don't worry if you don't have any; we will be making masks in class and have plenty of dress-ups here.


Well done for filling the reward jar Rosefinch and what a great idea for a treat!

Under the Sea book list - for the children to bring in to share with the class in the Summer Term - many are available at your local library.

Proud Clouds


Home learning is so important to the Early Years Foundation Stage.  You are your child's first teacher and you see so much learning at home.  If your child is in reception and has done something that you, or they, are proud of, please pick up a proud cloud from the front office or from the classroom.  Proud Clouds will be sent home in book bags each week with homework.


This term we are learning about being healthy; if your child says or does anything that fits in with this theme, please do send it in on a Proud Cloud.  Ideas for healthy Proud Clouds are:


Eating something healthy and talking about why it is good for them

Knowing when they will need to wear their coat and why

Managing dressing and undressing or toileting alone

Talking about exercise and the effect it has on their bodies

Knowing what plants and animals need to grow and thrive

Brushing their teeth and knowing why this is important

Getting enough sleep and knowing why this is important


Thanks for your support and for doing such a fantastic job of teaching your children at home.


Dear Rosefinch Parents


Welcome back to another fun-filled half-term of learning.

The Wonky Donkey, Little Blue Truck, Charlotte's Web, The Story of Ferdinand, Sheep in a Jeep, The Little Red Hen, Click Clack Moo Owls That Type, Farmer Duck, On the Farm, The Year at Maple Hill Farm.

Crazy Christmas photos for a bit of fun

Harvest Festival donations - thank you to all our families for your generosity

Tasting some of the fruits from Handa’s Surprise

Supertato - veggies in the valley of doom

We started the story today and left it at a ‘cliffhanger’ so that we could predict our own endings...I wonder what will happen. A great opportunity for your children to re-tell the story to you at home.
