Reception have been reading using Bug Club on the Learn Pads today. They have thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon.We have had to reset all passwords today to enable all of the children to log on. Your child will bring their new Bug Club log in details home with them. Bug Club books are a super resource for home learning. If you have not logged on for a while, please go online and enjoy the new resources that have been added. Thank you for your support.
This week we have been learning all about Chinese New Year. The children have made a dragon and will perform a dragon dance next week for the whole school. We have tasted chinese food and we have been playing in our role play chinese restaurant. Hugh's mum has very kindly brought in some chinese hats, kites,dragons and fortune cookies. The children will bring home a money wallet and a Happy Chinese New Year card today. Please enjoy looking at our lovely photographs. Kung Hei Fat Choi!
We had a fantastic day in reception on Friday. The children loved rolling biscuit dough and cutting out Christmas shapes. They were excellent at decorating their biscuits using piping icing. It looked like it had been snowing in the classroom as there was flour and icing sugar everywhere! Thank you to all of the parents who came to our open afternoon. For those parents who were unable to make it, please enjoy looking at our photographs.
As part of our work with the Railway Children charity, we have been thinking about what we would like to be when we grow up. We discussed different occupations, watched a video about a boy who dreamed about working with animals and tried on outfits. Please enjoy looking at our photographs. We look forward to seeing what the children come dressed as on Friday.
Reception children have brought home an invitation today. Mellors are coming into school on Friday morning to bake. The children would like to invite parents into our class to share our Christmas treats. So get into the festive spirit and come along on Friday 4th December from 2o'clock.
This week we have been learning about the Hindu festival of lights – Diwali. We have learned about the story of Rama and Sita, drawn Mehndi patterns and created our own Rangoli patterns using chalk. Please enjoy looking at our amazing patterns.
We have had visitors, Danielle and Stella from Mellors in reception.The children were very welcoming with their lovely manners. They were eager to answer questions about their favourite school dinners and willing to try new food. Danielle was very impressed that the children enjoy healthy food throughout the school day and were knowledgeable about healthy eating
We had lots of fun on Friday afternoon in our new mud kitchen. We made mud pies, soup and sauce from natural autumn materials! With a little help we wrote menus. We also sorted and counted our ingredients.
