The Reception class at a south Norfolk primary school have been diagnosed as having far too much fun so far this school year.

The 15 pupils in Tricia Fincham’s class started life at Alburgh with Denton Primary School by enjoying some doctors and nurses role play.

The topic involved finding out what the jobs entail, including looking at X-rays, writing prescriptions, and making appointments - not to mention dressing up in the signature white coats!

Mrs Fincham, who works with teaching assistant Kelly Francis, described the Reception class as an “enthusiastic bunch.”

They are known by members of staff and fellow pupils as The Acorns, as the school’s emblem is an oak tree.

This coming term, Mrs Fincham said they are looking forward to “entering the land of fairy tales and the make-believe.”

The topic will be based on characters from the Shrek series of films, starting with Puss in Boots.

The class teacher said that in particular, the pupils cannot wait to learn about the Gingerbread Man, as this will involve making biscuit replicas.

The pupils will also be making porridge when they look at Goldilocks and The Three Bears.

From studying medicine to cookery - it’s all in a year’s work for this multi-skilled class!
