Reception’s trip to St. Anne’s

We had a great morning visiting St Anne’s church. We listened very well to Reverend Jo as she told us lots about the church. We looked at the building such as the stained glass windows and looked at the religious pieces within the church such as the cross, organ and candles. We learnt so much from our visit.

These are some of our pictures…

British Values…

We have been learning about democracy and understanding that everyone has the right to vote. We did a secret ballot and voted for what we would like our class reward to be if we sit nicely on the carpet. I wonder what the outcome will be?

Firework Fun!

We spent lots of time making firework pictures with different coloured paints and glitter. We loved working in the modelling area and enjoyed designing and making some firework rockets – don’t they look great! We used the sounds buttons to record the sounds that we have been learning in RWInc. We wrote them on the fireworks on our display.

Autumn Walk!

We had a lovely time went we went on an Autumn walk and spent a long time looking at all of the different changes that we could see. We looked carefully at the leaves and could see that they were changing colours to yellow, red and orange. We all chose our favourite leaf and took it back into school and added some glitter to it. These are now hanging in our Cafe area. They look beautiful.

Hello there…

Last week we had a new visitor to Reception.  Spike had managed to curl up and snuggle down in one of our covers until he was found by Mrs Hussain. We didn’t want to disturb him so we decided to move him carefully into the wildlife area where he could have some peace and quiet.

Inspire Morning!

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who managed to take part in our Inspire Morning fun. We had such a lovely morning and the work produced was fantastic!

Take a look at some of the photos…

Let’s Get Measuring!

We have been learning about measuring this week. We have been measuring ourselves with string and then our teachers set us a challenge to find things in our environment that were taller or shorter than us. We had to make sure we were being really accurate when measuring the string. Some of us got really clever and started to predict which objects would be taller or shorter.

Den Building!

We had so much fun building a den together for the first time. We had to work as a team to work out how to get the equipment to fit together securely. We had lots of problems along the way and kept having a ‘team meeting’ to sort out what we could do to improve things. We decided that it looked like a castle. Some children then went to make crowns and tiaras in the modelling area. Just look at King Thomas on the throne – doesn’t he look posh! We had so much fun!

Roald Dahl Day!

We had a brilliant day celebrating Roald Dahl day. We all came dressed up as a character from our favourite book. We did a fashion show and loved showing off our spectacular outfits! We spent time listening to different stories and worked as team and learnt some phrases from them. All the children dressed a Matilda loved shouting ‘But I just want to go to school!’ (In a wonderful American accent!) We loved making golden tickets for the chocolate factory in our modelling area. What a fun filled day!

Our first week….

The children have all settled beautifully into Reception. They are all busy making new friends and learning how to use all the different areas of provision. We had so much fun playing in all the outside area. We collected all the water into the buckets using the water ramps, we worked as a team and built a climbing frame, we drove our super ‘cool car’ and loved playing ‘bowling’ with our tyres! What a lot of fun!
