We enjoyed going on an Autumn walk to collect leaves so we could use them to make patterns. We thought about all the different colours we could see.

Can you believe that Reception have only been in school for 2 weeks? They have all settled in so well and know all the routines of the school day.

We enjoyed our Maths work where we used the Numicon shapes to help us. Can you match the shapes to the correct numbers?

We had a very exciting day on Thursday when we all watched a huge crane lift up one of the builder's cabins and put it on the back of a lorry to be taken away.



We also enjoyed playing with the Foundation stage bikes and trikes on the playground.

With the weather been as fantastic as it has we have taken the oppurtunuity to get outside as much as possible.  We got lots of different equipment out like the balls, bats, scooters, skipping ropes to name just a few, to help develop a variety of different skills.

We have also been practising our Sports Day events so don't forget to come and watch us Friday morning on the Acorns field!


Bugs Bugs Everywhere!

This week we have returned to our minibeast topic.  Through our Expressive Art sessions we have been working hard on creating fantastic and colour bugs.

We have been creating minibeats using lots of different media. Everyone has enjoyed painting and creating their very own style of minibeast. As well as decorating their felt minibeasts they started for homework.  The children have even started to create their own stone bugs, find out more about them during Business Enterprise Week in June.

We can't wait to show you our fantastic designs but we don't want to spoil it for you too soon.  Keep an eye on future posts to see our amazing and colour designs.

living and non living things powerpoint 1 4 638

During our first week of the Summer term we looked at Living and Non-Living.  We looked at the features of living things.  All living things must have these. Can you name the features?

We went out into the school grounds and found lots of living and non-living things. 

We can't wait for the rest of the summer so we can spend more time outside.
