Reception had a very unexpected visitor in the outdoor sandpit yesterday - a young toad! We couldn’t believe our eyes! We gently brought it inside so that we could have a closer look, it was very bumpy! Mrs Haughton then found the perfect place to release it back into the wild!
🦆 A lot of people have been asking how our little ducklings have been getting on! Well here they are and I think you would agree that the are not so ‘little’ anymore!!! We love how Tiger still has his stripy feet! 🦆
All our ducklings now have names! All the children suggested a name and then we picked 7 out of a hat! Some of them are very fitting!
After much anticipation we have our 7 little ducklings! We are all a little bit in love! Today we took them for their first swim outside - they took to it like a duck to water!
Reception are very excited! After much anticipation finally one of our ducklings hatched yesterday afternoon!! I think it might have some brothers and sisters this morning!!
Another busy week in Reception decorating gingerbread men, exploring the outdoor water area (in the driving rain) and building bridges for the gingerbread man to escape across the river! The children have loved our Traditional Tales topic and are looking forward to finding out which story we will be learning about next week!
Reception had an “eggcellent” time on Thursday celebrating Easter. We made some beautiful cards with Mrs Gears and Mrs Johnson and tasted some delicious hot cross buns during snack time. After break Miss North found some clues in the classroom- the Easter bunny had been! We worked together in teams to read the clues and then set off on our hunt. We found so many eggs! We enjoyed sharing them together in the sun! In the afternoon we took part in our Easter bonnet parade. Here is Noah in his winning bonnet!
We had a fantastic day celebrating Nigel’s birthday from our school book, ‘You Must Bring a Hat’. We held a small party with play dough food, wrote party invitations to our friends, made party hats, shared stories with some of the Year 6 pupils and played traditional party games in the hall! What a busy day!
Reception class celebrated Pancake Day in style this year. We had our very own cafe where we could choose our own toppings and heat our pancakes. I think you can tell we enjoyed them from our smiley faces!
Reception class love learning about other cultures and their traditions. In the week leading up to Chinese New Year we harnessed our chop stick skills, tasted noodles, made lucky pig money wallets and learnt how to write Chinese numerals in sand.
There’s no keeping the biggest child in Reception class (Mrs Gears) out of the snow! The rest of the class has fun too building sledges and exploring our new frozen outdoor area!
Reception have been exploring ice this week as part of our ‘Frozen Planet’ topic. We had to try and rescue some of our toys that had got frozen in the cold weather. Mrs Haughton provided us with some tools and a bowl of salt? We found that if we sprinkles salt on the ice it began to melt! We also had to sort some toys based on the initial sound. We are getting so good at our sounds now! Noah also built his own swing today! He's very proud of it!!
Reception have a new area in their classroom. It is called the ‘Curiosity Cube’. Each week another curiosity will be placed in the cube for the children to explore. This week Miss North has included some photographs. Who are these men? What job did/do they do? Why are they surrounded by poppies?
Following our sessions last week, here are two videos in which Miss North demonstrates the assisted blending technique.

Reception have been learning about taking risks this week. In our outdoor area we have lots of 'loose parts'. The children use these to build whatever their imagination desires. This week some children decided they wanted to build a bridge. We had to think of ways to ensure that they were safe crossing it. The children thought of fantastic ideas such as; using the tyres as a soft landing, weighing the other end down and having a 'spotter' to guide them across.
Reception have been trying to put into practice our Christian Value of Generosity. We have been learning to be generous with our classroom resources as well as with our time and knowledge. Pupils have been generously sharing their knowledge of their sounds with other children which has been lovely to see! Don't forget to check our door for our sound of the day!
Reception have settled in beautifully! This week we have continued to explore the different areas both indoors and outdoors. We love our brand new sand pit and muud kitchen!
