We have been enjoying the sunshine in the outside classroom. During child initiated learning have been looking for bugs, making dens, and we even made a fire engine!
In Literacy we have been continuing to learn about traditional tales such as Goldilocks And The Three Bears and Jack And The Beanstalk. The children have enjoyed creating their own puppet show with the characters from fairy tales.
We had a great time celebrating Chinese New Year! We made lanterns as part of D&T week.
We discussed on Friday that each colour row will be able to bring an item from home to show and tell. Therefore everyone will have an opportunity to speak to the class.
Welcome to Reception!
Happy New Year.
We hope you had a fantastic Christmas break and are now ready to return to school for an action packed Spring Term.
Our new topic is Animals, Beasts and Dragons, please scroll down to see the topic plan for this half-term.
I look forward to seeing you at the 'Meet the Teacher' meeting on Friday 12th January after the school day.
A big thank you for a wonderful term, you have all worked very hard and I wish you a lovely Christmas Holiday.
Miss O'Sullivan looks forward to seeing you all in the New Year!
We had a fantastic time on our first Class school trip to St Albans Cathedral. We made our own individual Christmas clay tiles and followed the trail around the Cathedral, spotting all the Christmas symbols. Thank you to all the adult helpers on this day!
This week we have been learning about Diwali and how it is celebrated. We have had so much fun making Indian sweets, creating symmetrical Rangoli patterns, dressing up and setting up our own Indian Restaurant. We also read the Rama and Sita story and used masks to act out the narrative.
Wow, what a great start to the school year Reception. You have all settled into our new routines and have made lots of new friends. We have had a great fun learning all about ourselves and exploring our senses. If you have a sneaky peak in our classroom you will see our amazing self-portraits. We are having so much fun learning new letter sounds and we have just learnt our first tricky word. Have a look at some of our learning below!
