It’s Coming Home!
Reception have enjoyed a fun filled day of football activities to celebrate England’s success in the Euros. We learnt how to play football, found the European countries on a map. We watched a game, made England flags, designed football strips and made England flag biscuits. We also sang along and waved our arms to Three Lions.
Our Sports Day
In Reception we have been learning about Australia. We looked on a map to find out where it was, we found key landmarks, found out about the animals that live there and Australian culture. We recreated our own Aboriginal art work and and made a camp fire and pretended we were in the outback. We learnt an Australian song and practised our dance moves. We ended the week by writing postcards about Australia.
Our postcards home from our week in Australia!
Our trip to Little Owl Farm
Reception had a wonderful day at Little Owl Farm. We loved seeing all the animals, following the nature trail to find animal homes, holding the animals and our picnic. We had great fun in the soft play area. We brought our own eggs back to school and ate boiled eggs.
Soft play fun !
This term we are going to explore Space! We began our topic by finding out what we already knew and then we launched off into space! Next we explored astronauts and were amazed to see how they eat their lunch in space and move around in zero gravity!
We have some very creative children in Reception.
We have been working hard to improve our writing by using our phonics and neatest handwriting. This is some of our lovely writing about being an astronaut and flying to the moon.
In the Spring term we planted some radishes in our new allotment area. Today we picked our crop and were amazed to see how they had grown!
After picking and washing our radishes it was time to eat them. We all tried them but some of us weren’t too keen on the taste!
Our morning routine.
Every morning we practise writing our tricky words or writing our numbers as soon as we come in before we to do the register.
