Reception

December 2017 (16 images)

Here in Reception we have been learning all about different celebrations around the world, especially Christmas! We celebrated the Hindu Festival of Light “Diwali” where the children learnt the story of Rama and Sita and made their own Diva Pots. The children also loved exploring traditional Indian clothing and music. We learnt all about the Christian celebration of Christingle and learnt how to make our own. We also celebrated the birth of baby Jesus in our Reception performance of the nativity “Shine Star Shine” where the children worked really hard as a team to learn lots of songs and dances as they told the special story. The children loved learning about Father Christmas and had their first school trip! The children used their phonological knowledge to write their own letters to Santa before taking a walk to the local post office where they sent the letters to the North Pole. He even replied to our letters and visited us in our school party!

Autumn Adventures (29 images)

We have had a busy start to Reception and have been learning all about our new school, making new friends and getting to know the adults who help us. We have learnt about the expectations, such as tidy up time; the routines, such as snack time and our rules. The children are beginning to show curiosity and try new things out; often experiencing pride in their achievements. Our theme for the term has been ‘Autumn Adventures’. We have read lots of stories about seasonal changes and have explored the differences that occur during Autumn. We have celebrated ‘Harvest’ and had a visit Farm Link who taught us all about how they collect the wheat and store it. The children were really interested to find out where food comes from and wanted to learn more about how to make food. We read “The Little Red Hen” which inspired the children to want to make their own bread and soup. We ate the bread and soup we made and it was delicious! (For most of us!)

In reception we also had lots of special visits from the Dentist, Police and the Farm to help us learn more about each Nursery Rhyme: The police helped us to solve a crime as well!

Here in Reception we have been busy this Spring term discovering and learning all about lifecycles. Together we have investigated the changes that happen to frogs, chickens, butterflies and plants and even our own lifecycle! We went on a wonderful trip to the farm where we learnt all about cows, chicken and pond life. We got to stroke Mary the chicken and we found out where eggs and milk come from.
