One of our final topics in class R is based around the book - Handa's Suprise! We are looking at where Handa lives and comparing it with where we live. Check out some of our most recent learning...
A Royal Celebration!
We have had a SUPER time learning all about London and the different landmarks that you would find there. We explored London bridge and made our own bridges out of Lego, across our pretend river! We had a huge BIG BEN and then finished of our learning with our very own Royal Wedding day.
We came dressed to impress and had lots of different activities going on across school, to mark this special occasion.... have a look at some of the things we got up to!
We started reading the LORAX story and how important it was to look after the trees and the environment - Miss Faux set us a home learning challenge around recycling...Just look at some of our FAB projects!
We also planted our very own 'truffula' trees like we had seen in the Lorax - we cant wait to see what grows!
It's time to CELEBRATE...
Pancake/Valentine's/Chinese New Year Style!
Miss Faux had a big challenge this week... to fit in THREE celebrations.
Monday - we visited Miss Faux's pancake shop, we had to buy toppings ready to put on our pancake tomorrow!
Tuesday - we went pancake crazy. We made delicious pancakes and then eat them in Forest School.
Wednesday - we learnt the story of St Valentine and made cards for people we love!
Thursday - we started thinking about Chinese New Year and watched lots of dragon dancing videos and read a story about the Chinese Zodiac Race.
Friday - We visited our very own Chinese shop - we tasted spring rolls, chilli sauce, beansprouts and prawn crackers... we then teamed up with year 5 to make a Chinese Drum.
It was SO busy - but SO worth it!!
Jack and the Beanstalk
We have had so much fun learning about Jack and the Beanstalk.. 3 weeks of learning have been based on this story. We've counted with beans, played games, had a go on a harp, wrote sentences, compared sizes - you name in - we've done it!
Once upon a time...
The Gingerbread man was the first story in our new unit. We loved listening to all of the different versions. We even made a bar graph based on what part of the gingerbread man we ate first! We then had a go at making our very own gingerbread men - they were delicious!
Teeth, wonderful teeth!
After talking about teeth-brushing one morning, we decided to learn about how to keep our teeth healthy and clean!
Miss Faux contacted the school nurse, she came in to talk to us AND at the end of the week we were all bought a treat - a brand new tooth brush. Miss Faux set us some homework - we had to brush our teeth for two minutes every morning and night and get it signed by someone at home and then we were given certificates for super teeth cleaning!
Miss Faux realised that we hadn't had any of the technology based learning activities out... so out came the remote control cars, voice recorders, IWB and metal detectors. We also loved listening to stories about robots - especially, 'no-bot'. He was a robot with no bottom!!!
Nursery Rhyme Week
We joined forces with Nursery and had a nursery rhyme week in the Foundation Stage - we picked, 'Humpty Dumpty'.
We completed an egg investigation; we pushed eggs off a wall and they had to land in different materials - we wanted to find out if they broke or not...just like 'Humpty Dumpty' did, when he fell off his wall.
Welcome back! - Aut 2
I couldn't NOT tell you what happened to our dinosaur egg...so here it goes...
Parent open morning!
Thank you to all of the parents that joined us on our open morning! The children were SO well behaved... and so were the parents. It was great to see the parents getting stuck in and taking part in all of our different learning experiences.
I hope you found the morning useful - don't forget to send any WOW moments to,
Spooky week in Class R
We've been SO busy since we came back, starting our week with a spooky disco on Monday, Halloween dress up on Tuesday and spooky learning all week!
Measuring the height of pumpkins, comparing weights! Pumpkin printing, pumpkin bowling... who knew you could do so much with pumpkins!?
We have also been making a magic potion and apply bobbing...watch this space!
Autumn 1 - DINO INVASION!
Hi everyone and welcome to the Reception Class Page. We will be putting all of our exciting learning experiences on this page, so you can keep up to date with what has been going on in the wonderful world of Reception. We will be adding pictures soon...so watch this space!
Reception have had a superb start to school and look SO smart in their uniform. Their behaviour has been great and they are making lots of new friends!
This week we have been exploring all of the new learning activities class R has to offer, like the sand pit, role play area, creative station (just to name a few!) We are also very excited about our new house point system and Miss Faux's 'wonder capes', we get to wear these if we have done something wonderful! We have been listening to stories and joining in number songs (like the one at the bottom of the page) but most importantly we have been getting to know each other and play team games.
Over the next few weeks we will start to learn to read and begin the early stages of writing, not forgetting lots of counting and maths activities....we are going to be SO busy. Parents evening will be coming up shortly too, so look out for information on that.
Planners will be going out on a Friday and should come back in to school on a Monday, ready for me to update and send back out again.
PE day is Wednesday, please make sure all uniform is labelled, earrings out and long hair tied back.
We really hope class R have enjoyed their first week as much as we have - I bet they will sleep well this weekend (I know I will!!)
Welcome Reception Class 2017/18!
