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

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?

Friday 5th October - Physical development and making relationships

admin on: Reception

The children have been enjoying getting lots of fresh air outside this week and exploring our big spaces. We have been encouraging them to move their bodies in different ways and respond to instructions such as ‘stop’ and ‘go’ and playing games together such as ‘What time is it Mr Wolf.’ We have seen lots of big smiles and thoughtful friends.

Can you hop, jump, skip, run? What happens to your body after exercise? What can we do to stay healthy? Can you think of a game to ask your friends to play at school?

Friday 28th September 2018 - Maths

admin on: Reception

This week we have been learning about 10s frames. These are a really easy way of looking at amounts and quickly recognising how many objects we have. To make it even more fun, we used artificial grass and lolly-stick tens frames to pretend we were catching bunnies! You could make a tens frame from anything at home - a cereal box, a piece of paper or lego pieces.

How many objects do you have? Are they still worth the same if they're in different places? If you have got 5 'bunnies', how many empty spaces are there?
