Reception Sports Day

Vet Visit

Woburn Safari Park

We had a great day at Woburn Safari Park for our school trip. We saw lots of animals including a naughty rhino who wouldn't let our coach past and cheeky penguins that liked to chase our fingers on the glass! We also enjoyed the bird show and the elephant show where we learn a lot about how the animals are looked after and the work the zoo does to help animals in the wild. 

Ugly Bug Ball

We had fun making wings and headband for an Ugly Bug Ball. We all had a boogie in the hall and finishing of our day with a picnic.

We watched tiny caterpillars transform into butterflies and then released them outside in our playground.

Visit from Wrigglies Exotic Animals

We had a great visit from Wrigglies to start our 'Wonderful World of Eric Carle' topic.

World Book Day

We shared our favourite books with children in Year 2. We gave clues to our friends to guess our favourite book and we made artwork linked to the story Aliens Love Underpants. 

We have enjoyed visits from the RNLI and the Police Force during our Spring 2 topic People Who Help Us. 
We have enjoyed making and tasting porridge, gingerbread men and Chinese stir fry during our Traditional Tales topic.

Growing Beans

We are growing broad beans just like Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk. We have put them in clear cups so we can watch how they grow. I wonder if any of them will reach the clouds?

Maths Morning

We all enjoyed dressing up as our favourite Traditional Tales characters for our WOW day.

Playing in the snow

The children all had great fun playing in the Snow in December. We wrapped up warm and wore our wellies and enjoyed some snow fun out on the big field.

British Values Day

The whole school had a British Values Day to learn about Democracy, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty and Mutual Respect and Tolerance. In Reception we had a visit from Baroness Bowles who told us about her role in the House of Lords. We had a visit from the police who told us what they do to ensure the Rule of Law is followed in the community, all the children got to sit in the police car and sound the siren. We all also got to cast our own vote on which kind of books should be bought for the library. 

British Values Day

Grandparents Afternoon

We were so pleased to welcome so many of the children's grandparents to our classroom for the afternoon. We loved showing them around our classroom and they helped us to make clay hedgehogs. After that they had a well earned break with a nice cup of tea and we entertained them with a few songs we had learnt. 

Thank you all for coming. 

Walk to the postbox

Puffins class took a walk to the postbox to post our invitations to our Grandparents asking them to join us for an afternoon at school. During the walk we looked out for signs of Autumn and also tried to spot the letters and numbers that we have been learning.

Whats in the egg?

We started the year learning about Dinosaurs. When the children came to school they found a giant egg!! We talked about what might be inside and the children drew some of their ideas. The next day the egg had hatched and we had to go on a hunt to find out what was in the egg. We found lots of little dinosaurs!!
