On Tuesday 6th March, we worked in groups to design a vehicle for our Science curriculum day. We presented our designs to the rest of the class. We then tested out the vehicles we had made at home. Thank you to all the parents who joined us.
This half term, Reception have been learning about ‘People Who Help Us’. We invited a police officier into school to explain to the children about his job in the community. The children throughly enjoyed trying on the police uniforms and helmets. They also asked him questions and learnt a lot about the police.
On Wednesday 20th June, Reception visited St Leonard’s farm. We had an exciting and fun-filled day even though it rained! We fed the animals and enjoyed playing in the hay barn.
In the Foundation Stage and 2s Can we follow the Early Years curriculum. Through play, our children explore and develop learning experiences, which help them make sense of the world around them. They have the opportunity to think creatively alongside others as well as on their own. They communicate with others as they investigate and solve problems. We deliver opportunities for exploration of all 7 areas of learning through purposeful play, with a balance of adult-led, adult-initiated and child-initiated activities. This is supported by offering a range of real life experiences through educational visits and visitors in school.
Thank you to all the parents who attended our Maths workshop on Wednesday 25th April. The children enjoyed showing you what they have been learning about in Maths. We look forward to seeing you at our next workshop.
On Friday 18th May we celebrated the Royal wedding by having our own wedding service, for our two class teddy bears. We enjoyed singing songs, throwing confetti and dancing. After the ceremony we had jam sandwiches and cake.
Reception really enjoyed their trip to Tropical World on Thursday 3rd May. They observed a variety of butterflies, fish, other minibeasts and tropical birds. We’re not sure they liked the tropical heat though!
