Reception R-ES

Week beginning 3rd July 2017- Health and Sports week.

This week we have had lots of fun celebrating Health and Sports! We have taken part in an 'enterprise morning' selling fruit pots with our friends in Year 2!

We have learnt about the importance of eating healthy and doing exercise! 

On Friday we had Sports Day. Well done to green team who were the winners.

Here are some pictures from our exciting week in school.

Littlefoot Team Building

Welcome back!

We hope you had an enjoyable and restful Easter break. We have a very busy half term ahead of us! Our Cornerstone topic is 'Why do ladybirds have spots?' Throughout this topic we will be looking closely at minibeasts and their features. We have already spotted lots of minibeasts in our outdoor classroom and have taken a closer look at them using our bug catchers!

We will also be learning all about 3d shapes and their properties. Can you spot any 3d shapes at home? We have been hunting for 3d shapes around our school environment!

Our new Collective Worship theme this half term is 'Trust'. This week we listened to the story 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' and spoke about why it is so important to always tell the truth. 

Our visit to China Town

 

Welcome back, we hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year!

 

Our focus question this half term is ‘Will you read me a story?’.

 

We will be looking at different fairy tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, The Gingerbread Man, Goldilocks and The Three Bears and other well known stories.

 

We will also learn all about Chinese New Year and the different ways in which Chinese people celebrate.

 

Our Collective Worship theme for this half term is

‘perseverance’.

 

During maths lessons this half term we will focus on:

Numbers: counting and recognition

Shape, space and measure: size, weight and capacity

 

Stay and Play!

Littlefoot HQ

Today we were really lucky to have a company in school called Littlefoot HQ. They worked with us to do team building activities and taught us how to work as a group. We used our listening skills and our construction skills to build a tower as tall and strong as possible. Look at our pictures.....

Breakfast Cookery

Thank you to everyone who stayed today to make our 'Breakfast cookery' session such a huge success! We were delighted to see so many of you- and loved reading your comments. These included-

'A fantastic morning! Teachers and staff interacted amazingly with children and parents!'

'A great idea...a good way to get children eating healthy.'

'Wonderful...very useful...friendly staff and different fruit for children to try.'

'An excellent class...lovely seeing all the children enjoying it.'

Thank you to everybody who was able to attend our 'Stay for a Story' session. The children really enjoyed having their parents in to listen to a story and carry out some activities. We are working very hard to have our 'Parents as Partners'. We will have many opportunities for you to come into school and take part in workshops and coffee mornings.

Our next parents session will take part on Tuesday 11th October from 9-10am. This is a cookery session to help your child prepare a healthy snack!

Here are some pictures from our 'Stay for a Story' session.
