We have had a busy week, learning about Diwali and Remembrance day. To celebrate Diwali, we made Divaa lamps and drew mehndi designs on our hands. For Remembrance day we made poppies out of playdough and done some printing with potatoes.
Welcome back everyone. We hope you’ve all had a restful half term. This week we have started phase 2 phonics and looked at the “s, a, t and p ” sounds. We have also shared our half term news as well as Halloween celebrations.
We had a special guest this week; he told us all about being a lawyer and even let some of us try on his lawyer wig and gown. All the children were excited and listened intently.
To celebrate autumn we have been making leaf rubbings and making collages with crunchy, brown leaves.
This week in Reception we have been preparing for our carnival by printing t.shirts, making colourful headbands, shakers and learning a song and dance originating from Africa. We also had fun making banana muffins.
We have also been very lucky because we had a visitor come to tell us about his job as an artist, he even helped us with our carnival t.shirts.
This week we have been working hard to segment and blend CVC words such as P-E.N and in Literacy we have been reading Splishy-Sploshy. We even made up some rules for the naughty characters in the book. In Maths we have been practising forming our numbers. Below are some pictures of us hard at work.

We had a lovely day today at Chalkwell! The children enjoyed a picnic lunch on the beach, and afterwards they had lots of time to explore the beach! They were busy digging, collecting shells, pebbles and seaweed and having a paddle in the sea. We also found many crabs and we enjoyed watching them move in the water! The highlight of the day was enjoying a yummy ice cream treat before getting the train back to school! Next week we will be writing to the Gingerbread man to tell him about our trip!
Thank you to all of the mum’s and dad’s who helped us on our trip, we hope you enjoyed the day too!
