March 2019

The P.T.A. paid for us to see a production based on the story of ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’. Some parts were funny, some parts were a bit scary.

We tried some of the fruit from Handa”s basket. We had to pick a favourite from banana, pineapple, tangerine and avocado. We will use this information to make a pictogram..

World Book Day - We dressed up as a character from a book.

Pancake Day

We watched the pancakes being made and talked about the changes we observed. After choosing the topping (chocolate spread, lemon and sugar or golden syrup) we got to eat them!

We made pans and pancakes from card and paper, then had some pancakes races. The wind made it quite tricky!

After reading ‘Handa’s Surprise’ by Eileen Browne, we made play dough fruit and cut it in half using a real knife.

February 2019

3D ‘fat’ shapes - after looking at 3D shapes we had to work in small teams to create a building using all of the shapes we were given. Some were easier to balance than others!

Chinese New Year

We made blossom trees using paint with brushes and our fingers.

We tried a variety of foods- noodles, plum sauce, prawn crackers and lychees.

We acted out the story of Nian the monster to find out about the importance of the colour red and fireworks at Chinese New Year.

We looked at different Chinese artefacts.

As it is the Year of the Pig, we made a pig shadow puppet and performed a puppet show.

We performed the story of the animal’s race. Some of us dressed up.

Thank you to all our Reception families who took part in the Ice Cube Home Challenge. You certainly noticed lots of changes and had fun!

We enjoyed our party food.

November 2018

We had fun decorating the Christmas Tree. 

We each chose our own bauble or toy and took great care to put it on the the tree. We put the large decorations at the bottom and the smallest at the top, taking great care not to drop them!

Lots of us came to school with spooky or mathematical outfits.

In the outdoor classroom, we had to find as many objects as we could in 1 minute.

We talked about how many we had found and tried to record it on paper.

We made shape spiders.

We made different shapes to make monsters, pumpkins and spiders.
