Reception children have had a wonderful morning learning through their play. A selection of children were spending the morning working for the Police force and were independently writing each other tickets while patrolling the play area. Other children were making, drawing and sharing resources together.


For Harvest, before half term, Reception made pizzas! The children wrote ingredients shopping lists and were able to have a go at using tools while cooking. The children showed growing confidence in using the cheese grater and the children’s knives to cut the vegetables. Their pizzas smelt delicious when they came out of the oven and tasted scrumptious!

They also made a very lifelike scarecrow out of old materials and clothes and named him Worzel. Worzel made his first appearance at the Harvest Festival but will now live in his new home in the Reception Gardens.





On Friday Reception made a Christmas tree out of twigs and sticks from Forest School. The children collected the sticks and then measured it to find big sticks to go at the bottom and small sticks to go at the top. They also made a star out of sticks to go on the top of their tree.




Nursery and Reception took part in a Road Safety workshop last week. They learnt how to keep safe when crossing the road and had a go at using the zebra and pelican crossing to cross the road safely. They also learnt to look out for different vehicles and be aware of their sounds.




Reception invited their parents and carers in this afternoon for a stay and play session. They celebrated Chinese New Year by making their own egg fried rice, spring rolls and special fried noodles which were shared with their relatives. Thank you all for coming!




As part of British Science Week, some of the reception children took advantage of the rain yesterday and mixed paint in the puddles. They noticed the paint markings change shape and colour as they mixed with the rain water. They had a very bright and exciting playground for the rest of the afternoon.

Reception went for a spring walk to our Learning Garden today. The children looked at similarities, differences, patterns and changes in environment.


Yesterday Reception celebrated the wedding of Barbie and Ken. Some of the children created a Ken doll from materials found in the classroom to live with the Barbie doll they already had. The children made gifts for the newly wed couple, they designed wedding cakes, made invites for the class and made cards for the happy couple. They then had a brief disco after to celebrate Barbie and Ken becoming husband and wife. There was also a photographer on hand with an iPad to capture the special event.


Reception were having lots of fun reading, drawing and learning through play this morning.

Yesterday our reception children had fun making their own umbrellas so that they could play out in the rain. Some of the other children decided to stay inside and get creative.

Reception had an amazing time in forest school this afternoon as the sun beamed down through the trees. Some of the children made shelters from branches and dug holes to make mud pie. There was also some very impressive tree climbing taking place!


Reception have had an awesome afternoon in Forest School today. They helped Sam make a contained fire out of twigs and leaves found in our Forest and then toasted marshmallows and squashed them between biscuits. Yum!

Reception have been busy building their display for their David Attenborough Project. Can you guess what they are making? #takeoneperson #davidattenboroughproject 


Nursery and Reception had their teddy bear picnic today. They had so much fun playing with their teddies and each other. Thank you to the parents and carers that also came to play.
