Reception

Friday 9th February 2024

 

The children have enjoyed learning about Lunar New Year and to finish the week Mrs Chan and her daughter came in to tell us the story of the Chinese zodiac. They kindly gave each child a red envelope which contained a chocolate coin. Mrs Chan loaned us some decorations and traditional Chinese dresses to use this week. 

 

Children had a prawn cracker to try which they enjoyed! We have given every child a set of chop sticks to try! If you would like to send in a photo of your child using these, we would love to share the photos next week.

Today, the children went to the computer suite. We discussed what a mouse is, how to click, what a cursor is and the monitor. Children all tried navigating around a page using the mouse and used a drawing programme. The children had a great time and we are all looking forward to next week!

What a fantastic week we have had! Please see below a selection of photos from all of our special visitors. Last week, we met Dr Brooks who is a brain scientist, everyone was able to look through a magnify glass. On Monday, we welcomed John who let us all sit in his black cab. He told us that it takes 4 years to get to know all of the roads in London. Tuesday, we met Simal and Jade, Simal told the children how to keep their teeth clean and Jade explained her role as the office manager of a large dental practice. On Wednesday, Chris told us all about what it is like to be a Fireman, the children had lots of questions! Also, on Wednesday, we met Chris who is a foster carer and she explained how she looks after children. Thursday morning Mrs Marriot explained her job as a nurse and Thursday afternoon Mrs Carter told the children about her role as a Physiotherapist. We also learnt what a healthy poo looks like and how to keep our bodies healthy! Please share these photos with your child and continue the discussions we have been having all week about people who help us.

It was lovely to have so many parents who were able to join us for our Christmas crafts this afternoon - thank you everyone for coming. The children thoroughly enjoyed making crackers, wreaths, gingerbread men, sleigh bells, reindeer food and a snowman biscuit!

The Reception children loved going on a walk to the woods this afternoon! On the way down there, we looked for any squares and rectangles we could see, as we have been learning about these shapes in Maths. Whilst we were in the woods, we listened to the story, 'Stick Man' and then we collected sticks to take back to school so we can make our very own Stick Men later this week!

The children were very excited to see snow this morning! We wrapped up and went out and played in it for a while. We tried to catch the snowflakes! We then had fun decorating our classroom trees and hanging up some of our decorations we have made this week. What a lovely start to December!

Today we had a fantastic time exploring the outside areas and investigating the frost and ice! We walked across the field and listened to the noises our feet made on the hard ground, we then looked very carefully at some frosty leaves.

 

This afternoon we have made some nature pictures and poured water over them hoping they will freeze overnight.

 

We talked about the sun melting the frost and making everywhere very wet!

We all enjoyed our Autumn walk in Belfairs Woods!

Thursday 2nd November 2023

 

We have enjoyed reading the story Room on the Broom. We were lucky enough to be visited by the witch from the story. Children asked lots of questions and enjoyed listening to adventures the witch had been on. The children all made a magical wand and wrote the first letter from their name on it. We also had a go at following a Ghost Buster and Monster Mash dance!

Tuesday 3rd October 2023

 

The children really enjoyed their first experience of Now>Press>Play. They all listened carefully to the instructions that they were given to re-enact the story of 'The Three Little Pigs.' They took on the roles of various characters from the story by using familiar phrases, actions and facial expressions- they particularly enjoyed the part where the wolf started coming down the chimney!

The children had a lovely time this morning at their first Harvest Festival assembly at the church. They were extremely well behaved and joined in with the singing. Thank you for all your kind donations of food, it was much appreciated.

The children have enjoyed their first sessions at school and we have been so proud of how well they have come into school.  They have been exploring the Reception base and making new friends. We look forward to welcoming everyone back next week.
