We love to start the day with 'Just Dance'.  Here is a short snippet from World Book Day in our PJ's.

Our February stay and Play session was a great success. 

We enjoy having our parents in school. 


We planted our own beans just like Jasper did in the story.

We all had a fantastic time at Play Avenue exploring all of the role play areas.  It was so much fun! smiley

Pancake Making in Science Week- We weighed out and measured the ingredients carefully then all helped to mix them together to make a smooth batter. The adults cooked the pancakes but we talked about what changes we could see happening and described the smell.  We then chose different toppings and tasted the pancakes.  They were really yummy! laughyes

It was Safer Internet Day on Tuesday, the children were informed on how to stay safe online. We talked about different scenarios using characters from Traditional Tales 

This week we have learnt the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children have been so enthusiastic about the story and have engaged in acting it out as a group. The troll went into school over night and stole the bridge! The children created new bridges for the goats to cross the river and made wanted posters to find the troll and to retrieve the bridge. 

We found out about the first man to walk on the moon more than 50 years ago.

We have been enjoying our Space theme since we came to school after Christmas.

Our Certificate Winners 

We have been learning about our five senses and went on a walk around the school field to see what we could hear. We found some feathers along the way and had great fun running up and down the hill.

We used the colourful scarves and waved them around in big circles, zig zag movements and did some dancing.

For our PE lesson this week we enjoyed riding around on the bikes and scooters.

We enjoy sharing books and reading stories together in Reception Class.  Every morning, we put our name pebble beside the book we'd most like to read at snack time.

We have enjoyed exploring our indoor and outdoor classroom this week. We read the story My many coloured days and spoke about different feelings we may all feel. 

Today we talked about Queen Elizabeth and why she was so special.  We made love heart collages in red, white and blue to match the Union Jack colours to show that we care. We watched the video clip of Queen Elizabeth with Paddington Bear.
