      Goal Getters

      Published on Saturday 21 March 2020 by Crook Primary.

      With the school closed to most children our Reception team Mr Storey, Miss Roberts and Mr Hutchinson have set up a YouTube channel where they will be posting regular videos with ideas for EYFS children while they are off.

      Here is their first video.

      And as many have found themselves in isolation we haven't all had chance to make a Mother's Day card. Can you create a card independently for someone special?

      We'll be posting the videos on here and on Facebook. But you may also want to subscribe to their 'Goal Getters' channel on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZ7ePhTXOTNCX16K_BVcTNw

          A week in the life of Reception!

          Published on Friday 6 March 2020 by Mr Storey.

          It has been another frantic week in Reception, the year seems to be flashing before our eyes. We have noticed a huge shift in the children as they are becoming more independent and mature, which is brilliant to see. This week we have introduced money in Maths with each classroom having its own shop. Although it may not be up to the standard of Aldi or Lidl the children have thoroughly enjoyed buying different items and paying for them at the till. However, some sweets may have gone missing over the week with Miss Roberts being the prime suspect. The children have been introduced to 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p and 20p coins and we have been trying hard to use the correct money when paying.

          This week we have also had World Book Day! It was fantastic to see all the children dressed up and they looked wonderful as they showed off their costumes to the school. Well done to Isabelle, Larissa and Isla who were our winners for the best dressed. We have also introduced our own library near our entrance. This is a chance for you to take home a story to read with your child, we have chosen some weird and wonderful books so please take one and let us know your thoughts.

          Finally, we have studied flowers this week, I told you it has been a busy week! The children have planted their own seed and are now responsible for trying to make it grow. Our Topic lessons consisted of looking at the different parts of a flower and attempting to label them, I think we should create our own flower show on BBC2. Hopefully, you all got the letter to say that we are dressing up as Mad Scientists on Tuesday 10th March for an action-packed Science extravaganza.
