Brrr Winter - Noi sends us amazing things in the post

Date: 8th Jan 2021 @ 3:36pm

Our return to school has been very exciting! We received a letter and some paintings and then a book. It was from Noi and he told us all about some exciting things that happened to him.

He sent us lots of things to set up a small world tray so we can pretend to be Noi and reenact his story. 

We set the tray up ourselves and it looks amazing.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Date: 4th Dec 2020 @ 1:28pm

Today we decorated our Christmas tree with our own handmade ornaments. We sang songs and danced together. They looked beautiful but we thought it needed a bit more shine and sparkle. Do you like the Christmas tree?

We also learned about the Nativity some more today. Last week we built our own small world nativities.This week we dressed up and performed it! 

We love Christmas Celebrations in Reception. 

A Special Story

Date: 25th Nov 2020 @ 3:23pm

This afternoon we reminded ourselves of a very special event that happened thousands of years ago. After reading the story we made character stick puppets.  On Friday we will make a setting - the stable in Bethlehem. Can you guess which special story we have been learning about? 

Here are a few photos of us choosing and then drawing the characters. 


We are Special, It’s O.K. to be Different

Date: 20th Nov 2020 @ 10:55am

This week is anti bullying week. Today we wore odd socks to show it’s ok to be different. In the morning we looked at everybody’s socks and found that some were the same and some things were different. Mrs Hughes even popped in to show us her odd socks! Can you spot them? Look at the video below to see our different socks. 

We read a brilliant book by Todd Parr - you can read it  by watching it in the link below. 


Then we drew pictures of what makes us special on strips of paper and we joined the strips together to create a paper chain. We know that we are special and by joining them together we realised that our whole class is special too!


Happy Diwali

Date: 14th Nov 2020 @ 7:29am

We have been learning about Diwali this week in class and we'd like to say Happy Diwali to everyone who is celebrating today. We started making diva lamps, we created Rangoli patterns with shapes and sand and we learned about the story of Diwali. Lots of the children then decided to make stick puppets or masks of the characters. We also discovered that Diwali is a festival of light and it is celebrated with fireworks, just like Bonfire Night. Take a look at a few of the photos of us exploring and learning. 

Reading Challenges

Date: 13th Nov 2020 @ 8:11pm

This week we have spent lots of time completing reading challenges in our classroom. We read new books together in our Guided Reading sessions. We also completed some follow up challenges. Look at the pictures of our learning. We learned how to retrieve words from the text by using sound cues and by reading the sentences to find the correct word.  We also completed reading challenges in the classroom to label the different foods on our shopping list. (We need to buy food for our patterned tigers!)

Children in Need

Date: 13th Nov 2020 @ 8:00pm

Today we had a great time finishing off our Children in Need activities. Every morning this week we have joined Joe Wicks to start our day off with a fabulous five minutes of moving. Taking care of your physical health will help your mind feel healthy too. We care for ourselves and we care for others in Reception. 

We started the day finishing off Joe’s 24hr workout marathon. He looked so tired but he kept working hard. He is so resilient. This is something we are learning to be . Sometimes things are tricky and life can feel hard. We know to keep trying and one day things it will feel less hard.

Here are a few photos of us ‘Pudseying Ourselves’ and a funny video of us doing our silly moves when Joe completed his 24hr workout.

Armistice Day 2020

Date: 11th Nov 2020 @ 2:36pm

This morning we watched a video to learn all about poppies. The video showed us how animals were scared in the war but after the war all of the poppies grew in the fields. This made us smile so this afternoon we made our own poppies.

We care about people and we remember. 


Dark and Light Colour Day

Date: 5th Nov 2020 @ 8:25pm

Today we launched our new Creative Curriculum. We dressed up in dark or light, dull or bright clothes and began to learn about a celebration that we all love. Can you guess what our celebration is by looking at the pictures and watching the video? Next week we will be learning about a festival of light called Diwali. What do you know about Diwali? 

Here’s a clue:

Think about today’s date. 🤔
