Week Beginning 16/4/18

This week in Reception children have been learning about the story ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ and were very excited to go off to The Radlett Theatre to watch it live on stage.  Children participated in an exciting science workshop using air as a force to make their rockets fly.

Reception also understand the importance of looking after our world to celebrate ‘World Earth Day’ and have made promises to help look after the Earth. As part of this celebration we also set our class butterflies free.  Reception have enjoyed watching them grow and change from tiny caterpillars, to big fat caterpillars, making cocoons and turning into beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies.

Week Beginning 19/3/18

In Reception this week children have been looking at farm stories including ‘Rosie’s Walk’, ‘Farmer Duck’ and ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’.  Children created story maps and explored positional language.  On Thursday we had a visit from a poet who helped Reception create their own Action Poem, which they also performed to the rest of the school.

Action Poem!

Knock knees!

Blow cheeks!

Put your arms by your sides.

Open mouth!

Close eyes!

Put your leg in the air.

By Ian Bland and Reception

We all participated in our ‘Fun Run’ for Sports Relief.

Week Beginning 12/3/18

It has been a busy and exciting week in Reception this week.  The week started with ‘The Teeny Weeny Tadpole’ and a trip to the pond to go pond dipping where we collected some of our very own frog spawn.  We will watch these grow into tadpoles and put them back into the pond soon.  At the end of the week we had some very exciting visitors arrive, our very own caterpillars! Just in time too as we were reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’.  We were busy making potions using the fruits from the story to help the caterpillar feel better.

AND… we filled up our marble jar too! What a busy week.  Children chose to have a movie afternoon with popcorn or fruit.  Well done again Reception, you are working so hard!
