Welcome

Outdoor Learning Week

As part of their outdoor learning, Reception spent time working with Class 6. They had a great time together using nature to help them create beautiful butterflies. They also enjoyed toasting marshmallows and enjoying hot chocolate around a camp fire lit by Miss Rowe.

Reception have been enjoying reading Why Can't You Sleep Little Bear? They have been helping Little Bear by making night lights like his. They have been exploring bedtime routines and learning why they are important in helping everyone have a good nights sleep, in their own bed. The children recently had a pyjama party. They spent the day in their pyjamas exploring their senses, using their sense of taste to try pancakes with different flavourings. The children were keen to tell me that chocolate spread and the traditional lemon were their favourites. Looks like they were having great fun.

A play bedroom has been installed in Reception. The children use it to share bedtime routines and help each other by discussing any night time fears they may have.

An igloo has recently appeared in Reception class, this will support the children's learning as they begin to study aspects of Antarctica.

Reception have been using the Christmas story to inspire their learning. They have made elf ears to run the north pole post office and are constructing new toys to help Father Christmas.  
 

Reception have had a very busy, fun packed term. They have thoroughly enjoyed learning both inside and outside the classroom.
