Welcome to our class page!
Here you will find a snippet of the fun things we get up to throughout our time in Reception. We hope you enjoy looking at the photographs and sharing the memories with us.
It has been a few weeks now since we began school and we have settled in really well. We are making lots of new friends and having fun with our learning at the same time. Here are a few photographs of what we've been up to.
We have been thinking about our bodies and all the wonderful things they can do. Here are some photographs of just some of the activities we did in class...
Celebrating Our Differences
We enjoyed discussing how we are all different in our own special way.
We talked about our families backgrounds, cultures & heritage. As part of our celebration, we came to school in an outfit that represents our own family. See how amazing we looked!
People Who Help Us
We have been thinking about all the people who help us in the wider community and in particular the emergency services. We were incredibly lucky to be visited by many of these roles. Take a look at who we met!
We had a crime scene in the school!! It appeared that Humpty Dumpty had fallen off the wall. Who should we call?
We discussed the ways the emergency services can travel to assist us. We were able to list a lot of vehicles including lifeboats and mountain rescue helicopters. We decided to have a go at making our own emergency vehicles by attaching different media & materials together. Can you guess what each of us made?
This term, we have begun our cooking sessions. We had such fun celebrating Bonfire Night that we decided to decorate some biscuits to look like fireworks.
They looked and tasted delicious!
We spent some of the morning over at the Bushcraft tent. We enjoyed singing songs around the campfire and using the story stones to make up stories.
Afterwards, we went to visit the new chickens! It was great fun watching them run around.
The Little Red Hen
This week we have been reading the story of the Little Red Hen. We talked about the ingredients you need to make bread and decided to have a go ourselves.
We had lots of fun and the bread rolls were yummy.
We have been rehearsing hard for our first ever school Nativity play and this week we finally got to perform it for our grown-ups! We all had a special part to play on the big day and had different outfits to wear too.
We really enjoyed retelling the story of the birth of Jesus and the very first Christmas.
During Literacy this week we have been looking at the story of Supertato by Sue Hendra.
We had great fun freeing the frozen carrots from the block of ice and helping defeat the evil pea.
We even had a go at designing and making our own Supertatoes.
Take a look at what we created!
