- About Us
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.
Wow! What a fantastic start to the new term. We have worked our socks off in literacy and maths and have created some incredible pieces of work. In maths, we have been looking at addition. We are brilliant at adding, and we love the signs that we can create with our arms to help us. Look at us doing our very own independent work.
Damian wrote his sum independently and used some marble stones to help him. Meanwhile, Brodie was counting the ducks in the water and adding a duck on each time. Amazing adding!
We started our new topic last week which is focusing on superheroes, and we have been playing very well together with all the superhero toys. We love playing with the 'Batman' toys and creating our own stories where Batman saves the day, of course!
Finally, look at our super writing! We are really enjoying our brand new topic, so much so that we have been writing some incredible sentences.
