Spud and Yam teach reception songs from around the world - what a great way to support our children's language development. At Chestnut Park we ensure language development is at the heart of all our work.

Reception children enjoyed a visit from the bee keeper. The children learnt more about bees and how wax is made. They used the wax to make candles. At Chestnut Park we ensure our children learn through hands on experience- this supports language development and a love of learning


Reception children really enjoyed world book day. Their theme was traditional tales.
