This week our theme was Little Red Riding Hood. We have thought about her in all our lessons.
In our Literacy lessons we have used adjectives to describe the different characters and some of us even write our own version of the story.
During our Expressive Art lesson we thought about poor old Granny being unwell so we created a get well soon basket for her. It included lots of healthy food options, as well as a few extra treats.

After the excitement of having the new boards fitted last Friday, this week has been so much fun playing on them. We found out that more than one person can write on them at a time and we use our fingers, not a pen!
We are sure we have much more learning to do but have thoroughly enjoyed our first week with the new boards.

We have had such an exciting day today moving around the school and playing in different rooms, it was new board day!
The fitting of the new boards started straight away this morning. Although the children were excited about this they were more excited about getting to play with different toys in the Home Time Club.
Watch this space next week for pictures of us using our new fantastic touch screen boards.

What a crazy week!
The children have been fantastic this week: learning all their lines, remembering the songs and using there loud voices. They have all worked so hard to showcase their amazing talents during our assemblies and they all deserve a break this weekend.
We'd like to thank all parents and careers for your support leading up to the assemblies.

This week we started our Traditional Tales topic.
We started the week by acting out The Little Red Hen. We all decided we would of helped our friend if they had asked and we have been trying hard this week to be extra nice to all our friends.
Our next story was Jack and the Beanstalk and we did some fabulous writing and labelling all about the story.
Next week we will be practising our class assemblies and reading more exciting traditional tales.
Please remember to practise lines this weekend and those very loud voices we all know that the children all have. :-)
Assemblies on Friday 23rd January:

Fantastic news! The Autumn Walk sponsored event raised over £450 for the children in Reception. We just wanted to say a massive thank you for the money you have raised.
We will be using the money raised to purchase resources that will benefit the children. A few of the items that we will be purchasing are reading resources for the class, activities to promote fine motor development and resources to further support practical maths in Reception.
We look forwarding to being able to share the new resources with you on our blog.

Every Friday in Reception is reading and library day.
We have got into a very good routine of emptying our reading bags, putting our books away and getting ourselves ready to start the morning. We all get to read, either in groups or pairs, and show our fantastic sound knowledge!
The library is a great time for quiet independent reading. We get to choose our own books and take home.

What a surprise Handa got when she arrived at her friends village and all the fruit had gone!
This week we have been doing lots of different activities based around Handa and her basket of fruit.
These are our observational drawings of tropical fruit. We had to think about the different colours and what we could see from our seat.
We also made our very own African necklaces. We looked at the different colours in Handa's and her friends clothes and incorporated them in to our own necklaces.

The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
This week our theme has been Bonfire Night and we learnt all about Guy Fawkes and his friends.
To celebrate their plan not working each year we have bonfires and fireworks. We used our fine motor skills to create our very own fireworks pictures.

In Reception this week we have been looking at all things autumnal.
We started the week with our own mini Harvest Festival. We looked at what a Harvest Festivals means to Christians, and what the food is used for. Mrs Hollis and Miss Maltby took the food to our local food bank at Sutton Coldfield Baptist Church.
During the week we started making some fantastic autumnal art work using different materials that we found on our fantastic school grounds.
Our final piece for a Harvest week was to make our very own scarecrows, Maisy and Sid. We looked at the role of the scarecrow to help with the growing of food.
