Our children have loved planting the flowers they brought to school! Our resident gardener; Don (multiple time Chelsea Flower Show Gold Winner) has been teaching them all about how to care for plants in our allotments.
Our Reception children are learning all about 3-D shapes this term! They have even put together a ‘Shape Rhyme’ to help them remember the different properties and features of different shapes:
3-D shape are fat, not flat.
A cone is like a party hat.
A sphere is like a bouncy ball.
A cuboid is like a building, tall.
A cylinder is like a can of pop.
A cube is like a dice you drop.
3-D shapes are here and there;
3-D shapes are everywhere!
This week in Reception the children have loved reading ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’ – especially as the ‘small world’ has been transformed into the town itself!
This half term, in R.E., we have been learning all about the topic ‘Myself’. The children have found out about the meaning of their names; that each one of us is special, and that this is because we are made in the image of God.
During their first term in Reception, the children have had a great time trying new and tasty food. Our kitchen staff prepare different meals each and every day, and the children have lots to choose from!
A key part of the Early Years experience is access to the outdoors and the ability to learn through exploring and play. Our children have loved putting their coats on and heading outside for an adventure or two!
The ‘mud kitchen’ is a particularly popular place to play, and the experiences and conversations gleaned from this are truly remarkable!
Today in Reception we had an Autumn Walk. We saw the leaves turning brown and talked about the seasons.
The children asked some fantastic questions, and even discussed why some flowers can still grow in Autumn and Winter.
Can you spot any signs of Autumn near where you live?
We believe that parents and/or carers play a vital role in their child’s education. We hope to work in partnership with you – we will support your efforts at home and provide opportunities for you to engage in your children’s education in school.
