September 2019 - Settling into Reception

We have been investigating our classroom both inside and outside, making new friends and learning the new routines.

September 2019 - Reception received a visit from two police officers. They showed them around their car and van as well as let them try on hats and handcuffs

October 2019 - Reception enjoyed an autumnal walk around the school grounds, looking for signs of autumn. They sorted leaves by colours and used a colour chart. They also found differents seeds that had fallen from the trees.

October 2019 - Using the book Leaf Man, we learnt about vegetables that may be harvested when the leaves fall. We loved exploring the colours, smells, textures and peeling the vegetables and challenged ourselves to write labels for them

October 2019 - Reception looked after Year 6's guinea pigs for the afternoon. They talked about how to care for them and how to keep them safe.

Reception read the book, The Shopping Basket and were then given a shopping list to get some fruit to make fruit kebabs. They found out about safety when using sharp objects, food hygiene and also the importance of eating healthy food such as fruit. They also used their maths focus this week and made the kebab into a repeating pattern.

October 2019 - The adults were so impressed with the amazing teamwork, problem solving and the investigating skills showed for the children produced to create an obstacle course to carefully roll the big tyres across - Well done!

October 2019 - Reception joined KS1 to build hedgehog habitats and then dens for themselves. Fantastic outdoor learning :)

We took our maths learning outside to talk and create 2D shapes. Great teamwork and grouping were seen by everyone

We used our numicon with our learning of Diwali to create Rangoli patterns.

We welcomed parents and grandparents to our phonics cafe. We played games that could be recreated at home to improve our fine motor skills as well as show off our phonics knowledge
