We go for big walks every day and sometimes take the neighbour’s dog ‘Odin’ with us :)

Annabel and her mum have made a learning word snakes and ladders game to make learning words more fun, it does seem to work. Thought we would share it with you. 

Amelia has been growing unusual vegetables from seed, we have  yellow courgettes, purple carrots, red brussel sprouts and multi coloured chard. Amelia noticed that her plants kept moving to face the sun every morning. So we had a little lesson on photosynthesis.

Reception enjoying the dry weather while working together and building up their muscles!

Thank you to the fantastic children in Reception that held an amazing Mother’s Day Cafe for their grown ups. They have made and decorated cakes and shortbread.  Painting strawberries with chocolate took a look of skill. The flowers, placemats and aprons they created just added those finishing touches to a very successful cafe. 

We are all having a fantastic day celebrating words and books in Reception. 

The children enjoyed our “Pancake Cafe” today! 

We had a great time flipping pancakes, and giving out our rosettes for the order in which we finished. 

A perfect end to our Superhero topic. A mission in PE to rescue both Bradley and Cuddles bears. The children had to use all their Superhero skills to jump over building, crawl through laser beams, balance on beams, wriggle through fire and lots more!

Our Superheros defying gravity!

Our Superhero day has been jam-packed with lots of activities!!!  All the children had an opportunity to try them all.  I am sure all your Superhero's will sleep well tonight!!

The crazy wind whips our Superheros up into a frenzy!!

A call from the Superhero base sends all our Superhero's flying through the air over the city to restore peace to our world again.

Supertato and the Evil Pea meet, but who is the giant masher going to mash today??

Making Superhero armbands to activate the super powers.

Braving the weather to complete their Superhero training.

Let our  Supero day begin! 

Our children in Reception had a very creative day yesterday making their own superhero from fruit or vegetables. We will be writing about our superhero powers next week. There is much excitement too for our Reception Superhero dressing up day on Tuesday 11th February.

Watch the children independently retelling the Our Father using sign language. 

Lots of maths work has been going on this week. The children have been using sticks to add two groups together and then recording their number sentence in their books. In our classroom some children have been ordering the alphabet while others have been sorting objects according to the initial sounds.

We visited Father Roy in church on Wednesday. He told us about parts of the church that are used to celebrate events.  We learnt so much, thank you Father Roy. 

It is Top Table day. Ava and Jake were selected to sit on top table due to their good manners, they both chose a friend to join them. 

The children have really enjoyed the first week of our Superhero topic. They have been using their own Superhero powers in our PE lesson by developing new skills and strength.  They have been completing Superheros using play dough and then taking their own photographs using the IPad.

In our Collective Worship the children have been learning the Our Father using sign language. Ask to your child to share with you what we have learnt so far. 

We have started our new RE topic this week, Celebrating. We have been finding out about lots of reasons to celebrate and have been enjoying party games, making play dough cakes and sharing a  Piñata. Next week we will be visiting church to find out about how Celebrations happen within the church.

Happy New Year all,  I hope you have had an enjoyable break with your children.  Please ensure they bring their full PE kit back with them for Wednesday's PE lesson ensuring that pumps still fit those growing feet!!

I will attach the expected learning for this half term.  We will start our superhero topic, time ran out last term and this is such a fantastic topic for the children we did not want to rush it.  Just a warning !! we plan a dressing up super hero in day in a few weeks!! Children can dress as their favourite hero or even make up their own.  Details as soon as I know when it will fit in. 

 

Well  done to Poppy who was chosen to be on today's top table. Poppy chose Jessica to be her friend on top table.  

Thank you for all the donations towards our Class CAFOD fund. We voted today and have used our £68 to make a BIG difference to others lives.  Please ask your child what we chose, there are a few picture clues to jog and sleepy memories!!! 

The children throughly enjoyed having the staff wait on them today with their lovely Christmas dinner. The hall a super party atmosphere. 

All the children looked great in their Christmas outfits. 

Well done to our top table winners, Amelia and Louca. Their golden tickets were chosen out of the box and so they got to eat their dinner with the luxuries you can see on the photographs. 

In our maths we have been matching objects to numbers and also looking at length. 

It has been a PSHE day in class today and the children have been learning how to keep healthy. They have been using their strong muscles and building their cores to create balances. 

This week the children have been using tweezers to delve in jelly and find as many spiders, goggly eyes and monsters as they can.  They then recorded their own results on the outdoor whiteboard.  Some of the children have been ordering numbered boxes and knocking them down!

We have thought about why we celebrate with fireworks and made wonderful pictures with chalk and painting.

The children have come back to school refreshed and raring to learn! 

CAFODS brighten up day in Reception! 

Well done Reception , you have created fantastic Autumn Art pictures this week with all the leaves and sticks you created. We used the work of Andy Goldsworthy to inspire our art.

Thank you Father Roy for performing a class Baptism for our Baby Mary. We learnt so much about the meaning of Baprism. We celebrated with cake and a drink this afternoon. 

As many of you will have seen last night, yesterday the children had a great time creating models out of junk, we had some fantastic robots, wonderful work reception. 

 So the children have all been photographed ready to start their Rainbow Challenges next week. Your child will be collecting different coloured lolly sticks in exchange for completed tasks they are set. Please ask your child about their Rainbow Challenges next week when all will be revealed to them!

 Lots of busy work has been done this week. For those "eagle eyed" grown ups yes we are making Chiristmas cards in September! The Christmas painting will be sent home in a while enabling you the opportunity to have  your child's work made into a printed Christmas card, mug or other choice.

This morning our year 6 buddies visited us in our classroom and we shared our “all about me” books. It was really lovely to see our oldest children in school looking after our youngest children. 

 

 

Reception have been observing themselves carefully in the mirrors to create these accurate self portraits. 

After only a week together all our reception children are the best of friends.  We are so proud how they are coming in on their own, finding the correct bag box for their group and practising the skills they are learning in class.  We are all very excited about the year ahead of us!

All our Reception children are together. We are so proud of them and their excellent table manners. Please look in your child’s bag for their 1st week certificate and celebrate their success. 

Reception are settling in wonderfully and making lots of new friends.
