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!
