Haslam Park Primary School

Welcome to 

Reception Nightingale


Our class is named after Florence Nightingale. Florence Nightingale is an inspirational British nurse who showed lots of compassion to injured soldiers during the Crimean War.

She was known by many as 'The Lady With the Lamp' because she would often walk around the wards carrying a lamp whist checking on her patients. 

She was the founder of modern nursing, which has helped to provide support and treatment for many patients during their recovery for many years and her legacy still lives on today. She changed the way that patients were treated and improved the poor conditions of hospitals to make them better for her patients by improving their health and speeding up their recovery.

Our Reception Taster session was a great success! We really enjoyed meeting all our new parents and children today. You have all done an amazing job preparing your children for the next stage in their education. We are looking forward to working in partnership with parent/carers throughout the year to support and nurture your child to grow and succeed in all that they do.

Here's just a few photos from our Taster Session.

WB 13th September

                                                                     Collecting autumn objects
Over the next few weeks, your children will be learning all about the autumn season and making observations of the changes in the environment from Summer to Autumn.

We will be going on an autumn walk around the school grounds and collecting objects linking to signs of autumn.

We would appreciate it if you could collect any objects with your child when you go for walks in the park this week. They can bring them into school and share their objects with the rest of the class.

Please remember to add any photos of your child learning on Tapestry.
