Reception Art morning

Art and craft sessions are always a lovely time because it gives parents the opportunity to come into school and do some fun activities with their children. The children really enjoyed doing these art activities with their family, it was lovely to see both mums and dads taking time out to come and participate in the art morning. Thank you to Mrs Harrison and the parent volunteers who help organise such events. Here are some photos from the morning.

Our little Green fingers!

Now that Summer is finally here, children have been thoroughly enjoying themselves outside. The children love learning outdoors, they always have so much to explore. Recently, as part of our learning, Reception children planted some beans.  They planted them in  small pots, then when they began to grow they transferred them outside. The children, regularly, watered the plants with the help of a grown up. The bean plant grew and grew! Just like in the Jack and the Beanstalk story. Soon flowers started to grow, and the children said their would be nectar inside them. One day, as the children were watering they noticed something growing, they saw real beans growing! The children were so happy with their very own produce. Well done children!

Our trip to Hatton Farm

Reception children visited Hatton Farm for the day. The children had the opportunity to take part in a lot of fun activities. They had the chance to hold some animals and to feed them too. The slide was enjoyed by all the children; they loved climbing to the top and then sliding down. Lots of children were brave enough to go on the Zip wire. The tractor ride was bumpy, but was given big thumbs up by the children! The farm catered for everyone.

Bikeability!

Mr & Mrs P  came to Reception to teach children how to ride a bike. The children did lots of warm up exercise to get a feel of what it is like to ride a bike, they had to slide along the bench and walk along on it. After the warm up they were  given bikes to ride, they really enjoyed riding them. Next week they will ride their bikes outside on the playground.

We can use describing words

In Reception, children have been learning to write sentences using describing words. The teachers modelled how to write the sentences, then the children had a go for themselves. They were given an object to describe and were then asked to write sentences, independently. Lots of wonderful sentences were written using describing words.  Keep up the good work!
