We hope you enjoy having a look at our fantastic pictures of all the great things we like to do in Reception Class.
Many thanks to all of you for hearing your child read as often as possible. The children are making good progress and we are impressed with their enthusiasm for reading and writing in school. Please keep up the hard work at home as just 5 to 10 minutes a day reading with your child makes a huge difference to their progress.
There are still a few children who do not have a PE kit in school. We take part in PE sessions every week and all children need to have a suitable kit in school. They need black or blue shorts (or leggings) and a white t-shirt.
Please remember that children stop receiving free school milk the week of their 5th birthday. If you would like to pay for milk through the Cool Milk scheme then you will need to register and pay online or by post. Please speak to a member of staff or pop into the office to see Mrs Rice.
Many thanks for all your support.
Should you have any questions or concerns then please do speak to a member of staff.
We are always happy to help.
Mrs Ashberry, Miss Garratt, Miss Stephenson and Miss Green
Our Trip to Hartsholme Park
We went on a fabulous visit to visit Hartsholme Park. We travelled there on a coach. We met Lisa, the Park Ranger who took us hunting for minibeasts in the meadow and the woods. We also went woodland scavenging and used the materials we found to make pictures.
We had a picnic and played on the adventure playground. We had lots of fun and were really lucky because it did not rain!
The day that Rhubarb Theatre came to visit
One day we came back from lunch to find that our classroom had been turned magically into a caterpillar hideaway.
We met Kirsty who told us the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and who took us on an adventure through her caterpillar world. We watched as she magically spun a cocoon and then turned into a beautiful butterfly. We pretended that we were caterpillars too and we wiggled around munching lots of leaves until we made our own cocoons and turned into fluttering butterflies.
We read the story of The Little Red Hen. In the story the hen takes some wheat to the mill to be ground into flour and she uses the flour to make some bread. We wanted to make some dough.
We put flour on the tuff spot and added water to it to see what would happen. We mixed the water and flour together using our hands. It was very messy and sticky work. We added more flour until our mixture became a lump of dough. Our dough was very stretchy.
We have been enjoying having lunch at school. Some of us have hot dinners and some of us have a packed lunch. We all sit together in the hall with our friends and Mrs Hinc is our helper. After we have eaten we go outside to play with the Year One and Two classes. Lunch time is lots of fun!
We have been learning about farms and this week we looked at an information book about tractors.
We decided to build some farm machines using the Mobilo construction kit. It is tricky to use the Mobilo as it is hard to fit the pieces together, but we persevered and made some great models. We didn’t just make tractors. Some of us built combine harvesters, trucks with trailers and lawn mowers. Some of us drew pictures of our models and labelled them. Kacper even drew a field on big piece of paper and pretended that his combine was cutting the wheat.
