- About Us
Firstly, we want you all to meet our new pets in Reception. We are very excited to have two new pets who we have been very good at looking after. We have decided to name the fish... Brian and Sammy! By majority vote this was the outcome and we are very excited to watch them grow.
After the excitement of Brian and Sammy, it was time to kickstart our brand new topic, 'Under the Sea'. We have been getting up to lots of crafts and lots of writing. We are showing how fantastic we have become over the course of the year and wowing all of our teachers. We have been reading the story of 'The Rainbow Fish' and linked some writing to crafts by creating our own Rainbow Fish in the middle area.
Not only have we been showing off excellent writing skills but also our brilliant number skills. We are focusing on sharing this week and we are very good at recognising the sharing sign and writing our own sums!
The children are doing brilliantly and we can't wait to see what's in store for the rest of the term.
We have had a very exciting week in Reception. We were lucky enough to watch the Police Helicopter land on our school fields! It was very exciting and very, very loud. We loved how much wind the helicopter created as it landed.
We were given the opportunity to listen to the policemen talk about the helicopter and the police car. They taught us about the propellers on the helicopter and the sirens from the police car. We were even allowed to sit in the car, how exciting!
We had another fun day the next day as we came into school with crazy hair! This was all in support of the NSPCC and it was very interesting to listen to the representatives talk about the campaign. It was also very good to meet Buddy and show him our wacky hair styles.
We have learned about superheroes over this last half term and we thought it was a good time to practise our dramatic talent. We listened to the story of 'Supertato' and showed off our attention and listening skills by answering a range of different skills. Next came the fun part, we acted out the story of 'Supertato'! We had someone play 'Supertato' and 'Evil Pea' and also the most important parts, the other vegetables! We did a fantastic job and showed ourselves to be fantastic drama Kings and Queens!
Another busy week down in Reception as the fun never ends! We have been having lots of fun exploring our new topic, 'The Incredibles'. To do this we have made a self portrait of ourselves and some of us seem to have very interesting coloured hair including blue, green and grey!
We have also been busy flexing our writing muscles and exploring the importance of being kind. 'Kindness is stronger than Kryptonite!'
Everyone has written a kind comment and placed it in a jar. Our comments will be read aloud every day for our friends to hear.
Amongst all of our writing we needed time to explore our creative side. When learning about superheroes there is a very important thing every superhero needs... A cape! We have designed our very own capes on paper and have also managed to make some using spare material.
Beth said, "I'm Rainbow Starlight! My capes has stars that are rainbow colours."
Finally, we are becoming fantastic at taking turns and playing games nicely with each other. We can even count of our own points which makes for very interesting play! We love playing in the different areas with our friends.
