The Day The Crayons Quit

User Rating:  / 3

This week in Reception we have been reading the story, 'The Day The Crayons Quit'. We have enjoyed investigating different colours and finding out about how we can mix primary colours to create other colours. We enjoyed going outside on an Autumn walk and seeing how many different colours we could spot.

Foundation Stage Coffee Morning

User Rating:  / 3

On Friday 30th September, Reception and Nursery are holding a Macmillan coffee morning in aid of Macmillan and #teamisobel. This afternoon we have been busy baking ready to sell cakes on Friday morning. It would be lovely if every child could have a visitor to come and buy their cake! Tea and coffee will be served for parents in the Acorns hall from 8.50am. This will be cleared away before 9.15am when the children will come to the hall to sell their cakes. If you are unable to attend please send a donation in with your child and they can bring a cake home. Donations of cakes will also be well received. We look forward to seeing Foundation Stage parents on Friday!

Reception had a fantastic time celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday last week! We prepared homemade scones to enjoy with jam and cream and even made cucumber sandwiches. We made sure we cut the crusts off just like the Queen does! There were some fantastic costumes and we thoroughly enjoyed partying at the PTA disco.

Super Sunflowers

User Rating:  / 1

This week Reception have been learning about the lifecycle of a sunflower. We wrote about how a sunflower grows and painted some beautiful sunflowers that were inspired by Vincent Van Gogh. In maths we investigated money and found out how to make amounts using different coins. We also worked on our fine motor control, using tweezers to see how many frogs we could pick up before the sand timer went down.
