Our week in Reception!

Hello Friends and Family,

This week we have had lots of fun in Reception!  In literacy we read the story Stone Soup.  It is about a solider who makes soup from stones and vegetables.  We liked the story so much that today we made some delicious carrot and parsnip soup, it was lots of fun peeling and chopping the vegetables.

In maths we have continued to learn about 3D shapes and their properties. We can now identify a cone, cube, cuboid, sphere, cylinder and pyramid.

Even though the weather has been raining, we still have managed to have lots of fun in our outside area.  In the Mud Kitchen we have been using pennies to buy vegetables and nuts.  We have enjoyed making bird cakes from seeds as we were worried that the birds were not getting enough food as the weather has got colder.

We hope you have a lovely weekend

Our busy week!


Dear Friends and Family.

We have been very busy in Reception!  On Wednesday we learnt about Remembrance day and created a poppy picture to remember the people who fought in the war, at 11 o’clock we stayed silent for 2 minutes.  This week we have been learning about Diwali.  We made Divas out of salt dough to place candles in.  We have also been creating our own rangoli patterns.  Today we have been cooking lots of delicious cakes to sell after school on Friday 13th to help raise money for Children in Need. We are also looking forward to coming into school in our pyjamas and sharing our favourite bedtime stories.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

Thank you the Reception team


Welcome back

Welcome back Reception!

This week we have enjoyed coming back to school and seeing our friends.

We have been very excited to learn our first 3 sounds this week and have begun to identify different items that begin with ‘s’, ‘a’ and ‘t’.  We have also been reading a story about Mr Wishy Washy husband – Dishy-Washy who washes the cat!

We celebrated completing our first half term in reception by going to the park on the last day of term!  We all had lots of fun collecting Autumn leaves and climbing on the equipment. Look at the pictures below to see all the fun we had!

Have a lovely weekend from the Reception Team.
