Our week

This week in Reception we have been making cards and certificates for our friends to celebrate our friendships. It is Interfaith week, to celebrate  we looked at the story of Guru Nanak, the children enjoyed acting out his story using miniature characters. To celebrate children in need we designed new Pudsey bears and did a large spot picture as a team. We have also started to practise songs for the Christmas production, the children already have some favourite songs !

Week One of Autumn 2

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.


Carnival Week

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.

We’ve had a very busy week !
