People who help us!

What an amazing first week back. We have started our new topic ‘People Who Help Us.’ We were visited by a local police officer and we were lucky enough to try on the different uniforms that she wears! There were different hats and helmets, jackets and vests. We learnt that police officers can help us, for example if we are lost we can ask find one of them and ask for help. We have our new role play area, a doctors surgery. We have been helping one another if we feel ill, writing prescriptions, laying on the bed, having our temperature checked and even putting bandages on.

It was Shrove Tuesday so we made pancakes and then ate them, we had syrup, strawberry sauce, toffee sauce and chocolate sauce! They were yum!  We used tally marks to see which was the most popular flavoured sauce – chocolate won! We have been learning how to measure items in our classroom, we used unifix first of all and then used rulers, reading the number and recording our findings.

Richmond Academy is a primary school in Sheerness where our children are excited and motivated to engage in rich and challenging experiences, both inside and outside of their classroom. We have high ambitions for all of our children, with staff planning carefully to meet each child’s needs and stage of development, ensuring our children get off to a great start in their education. Child initiated play based learning is at the heart of our practice. We carefully plan for opportunities, activities and experiences that develop all of our children into independent, resilient and confident learners.​
