Week Beginning 17/9/18

Children have settled amazingly into their new classroom environment and our routines.  We are very proud of all children.  This week we have been focusing on belonging.  We have shared five important stories; The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Elmer, Kipper, The Gruffalo and Rainbow Fish.  Each child belongs to one of these groups within our class.  We value teamwork and have used these stories to build on this.  We have had lots of exciting learning opportunities linked to these stories and ended the week with a very special gift from Rainbow Fish; each child received a shiny scale in a promise to share in Reception.

Week Beginning 16/7/18

Reception have enjoyed spending time this week thinking about their summer holidays and moving on to Year 1. They had a visit from our school nurse, to finish our work on People who help us, who spoke to children about staying healthy and looking after their teeth. We ended the week with a special treat and made chocolate rice crispie cakes in small groups and then spent the afternoon having a mini picnic to enjoy these, as well as singing songs we have enjoyed learning this year.
We would like to take this time to say that it has been a pleasure teaching Reception and we wish you all a lovely and relaxing summer break. Thank you for all your help and support this year. Wishing you all the best for the future. The Reception Team.

Week Beginning 9/7/18

This week in Reception children have been learning about ‘People Who Help Us at School’. Children read a variety of books about teachers, lunch time staff, road safety and Refuse workers. They understand the role of each of these individuals and participated in a variety of activities around these themes. Children also participated in their first Sports Day at Newberries and we would like to say well done to every child for their hard work and determination at mastering these skills. Children also spent some time in Year 1 with their future teacher and created their first piece of work to go on display ready for September.
We were also very lucky to have a visit from the Police. The police officers spoke to the children about their uniform and equipment and gave the children a tour of their car and equipment. Their favourite part was most definitely sitting in the driver’s seat! Thank you to the Police officers that came in to us and for all the work you do.
We finished our busy and exciting week with a Tennis Enrichment activity which was enjoyed by all children.

Week beginning 2/7/18

In Reception we have been learning about ‘People Who Help Us’ Last week we had a visit from the Fire & Rescue Services and this week a Paramedic. The children were very excited to find out about the roles of these individuals and take a closer look at their equipment. The children’s favourite part was most definitely exploring the fire engine and ambulance. We would like to take this opportunity to say thank our Emergency Services for all the work they do.
