Home Learning During Lockdown
Reception children read the book Owl Babies by Martin Waddell & Patrick Benson.
They made ink drawings focusing on the detail in feathers and then identified Owl colours with paint.
Texture will be added with feathers... watch this space for the finished work!
We have been learning all about the people who help us in our school and the community. This was very lucky as 'a crime' was committed in our very own classroom. Mrs Reynolds trusted Reception to look after her precious jewellery. On Monday it was GONE! We spent all week investigating the crime and looking for clues and evidence to help us solve the mystery. We enlisted the help of the local police men and they were so impressed with the work that we had done - the criminal turned out to be Billy the Bag and the police arrested him. We spent the afternoon with the police men and they told us all about the wonderful work that they do.
Autumn Crafts with Parents
On Friday 25th October we invited our grownups in to take part in an autumn craft afternoon. We had a lovely time making Leaf dream catchers, leaf rubbing pictures, our very own leaf families and much more. We sang our song ‘Mr Scarecrow’ and everybody had a lovely time.
Reading Miles Challenge Launch Day
In Reception we have been getting very excited about reading. We have started our Reading Miles challenge and kicked it off with a Reading Treasure Hunt and some social outdoor reading. What a wonderful way to start the challenge!
Children In Need
On Friday 15th November we came to school dressed in our own clothes and we all had CRAZY hair styles. We did this to raise money for Children in Need. Didn’t we look amazing?!!
On Monday 16th December Reception had their Christmas party. They came dressed in party clothes, played lots of party games, did some dancing and had some delicious party food. A special visitor 'Father Christmas' came to deliver all of the boys and girls some presents and had a chat with the teachers to check that the children had been good all year.
