Reception

Welcome to Reception's Class page. Over the year I will try to keep you updated with information, photos and examples of children's work. Many children don't like to talk about their school day and so I'm hoping this will help you to find out about your child's day and all the fun things they have been learning. smiley
As part of our Rich Task we have been learning about a very special night where Christians believe baby Jesus was born. We unwrapped the presents and put the characters into the stable. It has helped us learn about the story.

After reading the story "We Three Kings" we wanted to collect Autumn leaves to make a mobile for Baby Jesus. How many leaves are on the string?

We all love 'My Time.' This is where we get chance to choose our own learning. after the story of the week we 'Have our Say' about activities we would like to do in My Time. These are a few of the things we have been doing recently...
Outdoors we have been learning to observe by looking closely. we have been observing how our school grounds have changed since Autumn has started. We had lots of fun!
We enjoyed the story of 'After the Storm' by Nick Butterworth. Percy had to check all the animals were safe. We used the Bee-Bots to help Percy locate all the animals in the forest.

Can you put the right number of spikes into the hedgehog's back?

This week we have been helping Spike the hedgehog find out how he can be a true and real hedgehog. He has wandered off from his Mummy and Daddy hedgehog and wants to know what he should eat, where he needs to live and what real hedgehogs like to do. We will be emailing Spike what we have been learning.

We have been reading the story about 'Owl babies.' As part of our work we made Owl biscuits. We learned about the ingredients and how to read the recipe together. Everyone worked together to make a biscuit to go home. They were delicious! 

We have had a very busy and happy first week in Reception...

Every Friday afternoon is FunDay Friday where we work on our skills outdoors. Here is our first FunDay Friday...
