Friday 16th November 2018 - Aspiration Week

admin on: Reception

As part of our Aspiration Week, we have been learning all about different jobs we could do as adults. We read the book 'When I Grow Up' by Andrew Daddo and Jonathan Bentley, which featured lots of different jobs like doctor, artist, secret agent and builder. The children took part in lots of activities to practice the skills required to do these jobs - looking after each other as doctors and nurses in the role play area, painting and drawing circles like Kandinsky in the art area, and using pipes and connections to move water around in the outside area. It was wonderful to welcome parents in to class on Friday to share our learning too!

What did you want to be when you grew up? How could you help your child meet their ambitions?

Friday 23rd November - Wonderful Nature

admin on: Reception

One of our governors, Mrs Harris, was kind enough to bring in some pine cones she had collected from the local park.

We looked at them and collected some describing words (adjectives) that tell us about them.

What do they look like? What do they feel like? What do they do? Where are they from?

Friday 16th November 2018 - Fantastic Fundraising!

admin on: Reception

Well done to everyone in our Reception classes - together we have raised over £60 for Children in Need! It is so important that we help other people as well as looking after ourselves. We watched some clips about how our money helps children to have happy lives and get the support they need.

What are you grateful for? Who helps you to be happy at home? Could you help someone else?

Friday 26th October - Science

admin on: Reception

In the last few weeks we have been exploring our wild outdoor area, the children have absolutely loved challenging themselves on the trim trail, assessing risks when climbing the low trees, experiencing lots of joy when playing in the huge mounds of leaves and making sticky mud pies! We hope you have been enjoying the fresh Autumn weather at home too!

What part of the trim trail did you find tricky? How many different ways can you travel across the room? Why are there so many leaves on the floor? What other changes do we see at this time of year?

Friday 12th October - Topic

admin on: Reception

This week we have been making lists of ingredients to add to our potions! Mrs Stephenson and Mr Logan had a tray full of rats poo, frogs eyes, worms and

The brave souls in class touched the ingredients and thought of words to describe how they felt. The children used words such as squishy, squashy, cold, hard and small.

Can you think of your own ingredients? Can you think of words to describe them? What would your potion do?
