Reception had a wonderful trip to Celtic Harmony. We made salt dough mini-beasts and twig rafts. We learnt to identify dock leaves and used them as the sails on our rafts. Next we went on a walk through the woods and collected items to make journey sticks. Finally we made clay faces on the bark of the trees.
This week Reception celebrated their 100th day of school. The children completed a piece of homework to represent the number 100, and we were really impressed with their ideas. We then took part in lots of different activities linked with the number 100. For example measuring items of 100cm, finding 100 objects in slime, scoring 100 goals and stacking 100 cups.
People Who Help Us
Reception and Nursery have had a fun filled week with lots of visitors from inside and outside school. We had Miss Brown, Mrs Brewer, Robin and Mrs Bennett come in to talk to the class about how they help us everyday day at school. We had a visit from the Vet and examined some x-rays to find out what was wrong with the animal. The Police and Firefighters also came and taught us about how to keep safe and what to do in an emergency. The children were lucky enough to try on some of the uniform and have a go in the vehicles. Thank you to all of the parents and other visitors who kindly volunteered.
To raise money for Children in Need we all brought a teddy into school. Reception and Nursery had a teddy bear's picnic together and then watched the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michel Rosen. Reception then completed laps around the track as part of the schools 'Run a Mile' idea.
Reception have been lucky enough to have some volunteers to sort out the garden area. Mrs Gladding brought the plants and flowers in before half term for the children to explore. On the Saturday of half term we had both parent and child volunteers who did a great job at weeding, trimming and planting. A huge thank you for all the help and thank you to the PSA for funding our new plants. Take a look at some of the before and after photos below...
