Please have a look at this survey (link below – copy and paste into your search bar) and fill it in whenever you get the chance.

It will really help the school to understand what is going well and what could be done even better, and how I can support your children and let them be the best they can be!

Thank you!

Life cycles

This week in reception we have started our new topic on mini beasts!

We have been reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and investigating how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. We have learned lots of new vocabulary like ‘chrysalis’, ‘pupa’, ‘antenna’ and ‘life cycle’.

We created our own butterfly life cycle by splitting into different groups and creating different parts of the cycle. This meant we all contributed to the poster and worked together to create a great end product. We were very busy making leaves with eggs on, caterpillars, cocoons and butterflies!

The three little pigs

In Reception we have been learning about Chinese New Year. This year is the year of the pig. We have been exploring the story of the three little pigs and acting it out in our new and improved outdoor area.

 

 Uh oh! Here is the wolf!

We then played a game called hot seat. The children have to imagine they are the character and answer from their point of view. We have even made houses inside!

Exploring the snow!

We took advantage of the snow today on another winter walk! We had snow angels, chasing games, snowballs, mini snowmen and crunchy footsteps! We had loads of fun and then experimented with different ways of warming up once we went back inside.

During our university session my group had a go at origami corner bookmarks. Once they had folded them correctly they decorated them. We had a panda, a unicorn, pokeball, bird, rabbit and even a pizza slice..

These slide over the corner of a page in a book! I wonder what we will create next week….

Guess the baby!

We have been learning about time in Reception.

Today we discussed all the things we can do now that we couldn’t do when we were babies. We also discussed how we grow up very slowly and learn new things every day as our brain grows too.

Some children brought in pictures of themselves as babies and we split into groups and played a game where we had to guess who the picture was of! They loved seeing the photographs of themselves and each other and it was a really fun session that involved them working together.

A few girls started making puppets today which lead to the whole class following their lead and either making a puppet or receiving a handmade ticket to the puppet show.

We borrowed a special tent from Year 1 and groups of children performed their story while the others watched and listened. They loved it!

   

A frosty walk!

Today it was very cold and frosty so we went for a walk down to the field to investigate.

We noticed how our warm hands melted the frost and left handprints, how crunchy the grass sounded because it had frozen and it was cold enough to see our breath! The children loved getting wrapped up in their winter clothes and seeing the field be a different colour to normal.

“It looks like sugar!” , “It’s crunchy under my feet” , “I’ve left a handprint in the ice”

Ice and a visit from Elsa!

We have been having lots of fun learning about ice. We started off by exploring ice cubes and what they felt like… Some children noticed they were starting to turn to water. We discussed that this was called ‘melting’ and then had a think about what causes ice to melt.

We did an experiment to see what would melt the ice quicker; salt or hot air… We even had a letter from Elsa explaining she had accidentally frozen some of our toys and we had to figure out how to free them!
