Reception

Spring Term

Chicks

We were lucky enough to watch the eggs hatch. We learnt all about how to care for the chicks and handled them very carefully.

           

Spring Walk

This term we have been learning about the changes that take place in spring. We went on a spring walk around the school and found lots of interesting things that are growing. The children painted some beautiful pictures of some of the plants they saw. We have also been growing plants. The bean plants have grown so tall!

           

 

             

Teddy Bear's Picnic

The Reception children had a very fun time at the teddy bear's picnic. They all brought a teddy bear in from home to come and join us. Before the picnic we read instructions and made jam sandwiches. The children and teddy bears thought they were very tasty. 

        

We danced and played some party games after we ate our food. The attendance bear joined us too!

         

                                  

Autumn Term

Post Box Trip

The Reception children have written a letter to Santa! We walked to the post office to post our letters. Some children were lucky enough to see the postman who was posting letters to the houses nearby. 

           

Zoo Lab

Reception were lucky enough to have some creepy crawly visitors. Each class visited 'Zoo Lab' where the children were told some spooky stories from a witch. She brought some interesting visitors; a rat, a millipede, a cockroach, a snake and a giant african land snail.

         

         

   Autumn Walk

The children in Reception have had a busy and exciting first term at school. All the children went on an autumn walk to the local park. They looked for signs of autumn and collected some beautiful autumn leaves.

          

Heavier and lighter baking

The children have also been baking cakes and have used balance scales to weigh the ingredients.  They are beginning to use comparative language such as ‘heavier’ and ‘lighter’ to describe the ingredients and  the balance scales.

           

Earth Song

Reception started the year with the topic 'Africa' where each class learnt more about their class animal. We had a visit from 'Earth Song' where we explored musical instruments from Africa. The children particularly enjoyed the drums!
