Reception

Summer Term

 

Can we please ask all parents to put suncream on your children before they come to school each morning and provide a sunhat and a bottle of water daily.

On Tuesday a Brassband Quintet came to school.  They talked to the children about each instrument and how to play it.

Eggstravaganza

 

First of all we would like to thank Councillor Ann Rampling for Reception's Easter eggs.

 

The children have been busy this week making Easter cards and baskets.

 

Reception made some wonderful Easter Bonnets.  We went to see the Easter Bonnets in year one and two, they were fantastic!  Then we went to over to the juniors to look at their marvelous egg creations.

The Solar Eclipse

 

The children in reception watched the moon cover the sun at 9:30am on 20th March 2015.  In order to avoid damage to our eyes we wore special glasses and watched it happen as a reflection in our water tray.

Celebrating Palm Sunday

We talked about Easter Sunday and the importance of Palm Sunday and Good Friday.  We made a class butterfly as a symbol of new life.  We made Palms out of newspaper and cellotape and sang 'Hosanna' to remember Jesus giving his life so that we might be saved.

Christian Values Week

 

This week Reception thought about the Christian Values of Love and Friendship. We took part in Messy Church. We made bookmarks for each other to show love for our friends.  We talked about what it is to be a good friend and made rosettes for our friends.

Chinese New Year

 

This week we have been talking about the Chinese New Year.  The children have been collage mask making and lantern making.  The whole class created a dragon out of junk material and went into the hall to perform a dance.  They were also taught and can now say 'Happy New Year' in Chinese.

Fun in the snow

 

The children had a great time playing in the snow.  We looked at how the snow melted.  Harry said 'The snow is melting because it is getting warmer'.

Fruit Tasting

 

The children tasted a selection of fruits.  We made a human bar chart in the playground and created one for our wall in the classroom to show which was their favourite fruit.

On Friday 12th December the children went to Ashton Library to meet Father Christmas

Reception children re-enacted trench warfare on the ground.  They were sent out into the playground to build their trenches and they crawled over to no mans land to attack each other.  They stopped for a game of football to remember Christmas day 1914 when the soldiers had an unofficial truce.
