We had a fantastic time on our trip to the three sisters. The children took part in pond dipping, mini beast hunting, a nature walk and produced some fabulous art work. The children were really well behaved and all of the staff felt very proud of reception. We got wet on our walk home but it certainly didn’t dampen our day
Today we had a special visitor in reception, Goldilocks came to visit us! We had prepared questions for her during our guided writing sessions through the week using special words like why, what, how, when and where to start out sentences. The children read out their own questions and Goldilocks answered them for us. We also had lots of fun making porridge this week and choosing delicious fruit to add to our porridge to make it taste great.
We were all very surprised to find some mysterious eggs in our forest area. The children think they could be dinosaur eggs! We have carefully carried them inside and the children have made a little nest for the eggs. We are now waiting patiently for them to hatch to find out whether they really are dinosaur eggs!
Wow, what a lovely time we have had in reception over the last half term. We were all so proud of the children performing their class assembly with lovely clear speaking voices and fantastic singing. We can now look forward to our mini topic on dinosaurs after Easter and get ready to do some dinosaur stomping!
We have had such a lovely 2 weeks, it has been an amazing experience seeing the eggs hatch and watching the chicks grow and change. The children have cared for the chicks, changing their bedding every day and giving them food and water and understanding the responsibility in caring for others. The chicks are going to live in Mr and Mrs Bentham’s garden now and We are sure they will be very happy there.
The chicks are bigger and stronger now and the children in reception have been holding them very carefully.
The children have been caring for our chicks, cleaning out the brooder box and giving the chicks fresh food and water.
We had a fantastic time on Art Curriculum Day. We learned about the artist Jasper Johns and were inspired by his work with numbers. We really enjoyed using pastels and getting VERY messy!
We really enjoyed meeting the firefighters and seeing the fire engine. They explained to us how they help people and the different jobs they do. We know that we must ALWAYS stay away from fire, that we must tell a grown up if we see fire or call 999 and that we must always wear a seatbelt and sit on our booster seat or special chair in the car.
The children enjoyed their walk to Ashton library. We learned all about libraries and what we can do there, we also learned about how librarians can help us. The children were really well behaved and very sensible on our long walk. Well done reception! We were very proud of you on your first trip out of school.
