Some fantastic knowledge of number bonds to ten from this Sparkling Seahorse today! Well done!!

After sharing the Easter story today, Reception made some fantastic Easter gardens.

Amazing maths skills from this Sparkling Seahorse in provision today. Sofia was able to rearrange the numbers into the correct order and spotted which one was missing. She then made her own number card for the missing number. Great work! #MathsEveryoneCan

As part of World Book Day, Reception Class visited our local The Bridge Library.  We shared some wonderful books with our friends.

We’re loving #WorldBookDay in Reception today! Can you guess what our favourite books are?

Anyone interested in trying one of Reception’s potions they have been busy making today? Apparently they “Make you feel better when you are poorly.” #imagination

Reception have been really enjoying painting different places they would like to visit in provision today, the beach was a clear winner! #everychildisanartist

Learning about different foods that are eaten during Chinese New Year and what they represent, lion dancing and even some dragon dancing! What a great day in Reception #allaroundtheworldweek

Great determination from this young man in Reception today! Building The Great Wall of China all by himself. He was very keen to explain all the features he had included after looking at photos of the wall, fantastic job!

Reception have been getting ready for our Lion Dancing tomorrow by making our own lion masks.

Finding out all about Chinese New Year in Reception today, traditional clothing, lanterns, lion dancing and Chinese name writing!

Seahorses were very excited to share one of our 'Favourite Five' stories at the end of the day, they were desperate to help to tell the story and had great fun acting it out too! Can you guess which story it is?

Some fantastic teamwork and throwing skills in today's PE lesson. Great work Seahorses!!!
