Reception

Welcome to Reception Class!

The staff team are: Mrs. Winters, Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Busby

 

In Reception we are a very busy, lively and friendly group of children. We hope you enjoy looking at some of the very many different things that we do together in our school.

Children in need.

Today we had a very special fun day, celebrating friendships at the end of friendship week and raising money for Children in Need. We wore our spotty outfits and brought in our special teddies. We did lots of shared activities with friends in Year 1 and Year 2, making "Friendship Pom-Poms!" bird feeders, friendship bracelets and cards.

First Class Trip to Nell Bank : "We're going on a bear hunt!"

What a wonderful day. We all  had a great time. We went on a bear hunt looking for clues as we went along, like scratch marks and broken branches. We went through thick, oozy mud, long wavy grass and crunchy, crispy leaves. Eventually we found the bear and he was very friendly, although his cave was quite spooky! Using things that we could find in the woods we had to make our bear a den to sleep in. After lunch we went looking for mini beasts, we did some pond dipping and finally explored the water play area. Water play in the rain! 

To help us in our learning about people and communities, two of our dinner ladies, Mrs. Sirohi and Mrs. Vijayanand, came in to share with us some of the things that they do with their families to celebrate Diwali. They talked about the festival of light and dressed some children in saris. We looked at rangoli patterns and had a go at making some with rice that we had dyed.

Looking after God's beautiful world.

We have been learning about creation and all the wonderful things that God made.... including us! We have been talking about how important it is to care for everything and each other. We have been planting Spring bulbs that we will have to look after, they will make our out door garden look very pretty.

Baking bread.

To develop stronger fingers and learn lots of new words, like yeast and kneading, we have been making little iced buns and hedgehog bread! Delicious.

Reception class have visited our church St. Paul's. We learned that it is a very special place for us where we can be with God. We learned to bless ourselves, how to genuflect and how to sit nicely. We looked at the altar, the Bible and we also said a prayer together.

We had fantastic fun exploring our Mud Kitchen and outside area. We made cakes, we played with cornflour and we made patterns with stones and twigs. We got very messy and tried lots of new things.

We have been extremely active, learning to ride the bikes while looking out for others, playing parachute games, playing "What time is it Mr. Wolf?" getting creative in the gluing and sticking area and with "Duplo."
