Ready to Teach, Ready to Learn
Mrs Foster, Mrs Hall and Miss Ridley
We are very proud of the hard working children in our Reception Class. The children help each other with their learning by being caring and kind, every day. Our children are encouraged to make the right 'Choices' in all they do.
Miss Ridley in Reception, loves to support, challenge and encourage the children.
Reception is often a hive of activity where creative, active and outdoor learning enables our children to progress through the curriculum.
As part of our Autumn Topic the children enjoyed a walk to Summerhill. The children looked at various Autumn objects such as leaves, twigs and mud. We discussed why the leaves have fallen and what the weather could be like in the Autumn time. We made Autumn Collages that we created on the ground, and enjoyed walking through the leaves, puddles and squishy mud.
The children have been extremely creative this term and used clay to produce hibernating hedgehogs and "super worms" We developed our understanding of science by engaging with water in different states of matter such as ice. The children were shocked to find animals stuck in ice and they had to come up with ideas to rescue them.
During this Spring Term the children have once again been very busy. They have completed various maths activities by ordering and beginning to add to numbers together. By using their phonic skills the have been improving their reading and writing. Looking at The Hungry Caterpillar story the children have written captions and used number formation in their work linked to the story. At the end of this term the children completed tasks listened to the Easter Story, understanding why we celebrate Easter.
Our main topic this term is all about minibeasts. To start off the term we went for a walk around Summerhill to hunt for minibeasts. The children found areas were some minibeasts might live and how they survive. Following this the members of staff from Summerhill came into school to help us create our own minibeast area on the field.
