Jakub from McKee class and Nella from Ross won the home reader raffle prize. They got a tick every week for reading at home and were able to choose a book from the office. Well done super readers!
We have been finding out about Chinese New Year; which this year falls on Friday February 16th and is the year of the dog. We have visited a local supermarket and the Chinese supermarket in town and compared the similarities and differences between the two.
This half term we have been learning about pirates. We have been reading books on our desert island, role playing on our pirate ship and learning about the pirate way of life.
In Reception we spent some time learning about why we wear poppies for Remembrance Day. We then created some representations of poppies through transient art. This means that we made our pictures but didn't keep them and reused the resources.
On Tuesday the 17th of October Reception held an Autumn craft day for parents. There were activities such as leaf rubbing, biscuit decorating, sponge painting and paper pumpkin making. Lots of parents attended and tackled the different activities enthusiastically.
Thank you to all the parents and family members who came to our learning showcase today. The turn out was fantastic and we really appreciate all the support and feedback you give us. We are looking forward to seeing you all again at the next one.
We are settling well into Reception and are beginning to learn and follow the new routines. Now that we are more grown up we are enjoying choosing what to have for dinner and trying to eat it all independently. We are learning about stories, particularly The Three Billy Goats Gruff, size, number and how to write the letters in our name.
