Reception

We are Reception!

Jellyfish, Piranha and Dolphin classes welcome you to our page.

 Our topic this term is From the Sky to the Sea.

 

 Our story focuses this term are Jack and the Beanstalk and A Fish Who Could Wish. 

When we came back to school after the Easter holidays we were amazed to see a gigantic beanstalk had grown in our outside area! There was a letter at the bottom of the beanstalk from the Giant asking us for our help to find his golden harp! 

We wrote letters to the Giant inviting him down to our classrooms to visit us, and we put missing posters around the school to help us find the harp. We even visited the teachers to see if they knew anything about this mystery!

With a few clues hidden around the school, we worked out that the Hungry Caterpillar was the culprit! We found the harp and returned it to the Giant. 

Here are some photographs of our brilliant day!

At the end of this half term we had a visit from Animazing. Steve brought his wonderful animals into our classrooms and told us lots of interesting facts about them. 

        

 

Learning Together Days

We like to invite our grown-ups into school to learn with us. We have enjoyed both phonics and literacy sessions with our grown ups so far. Our next opportunity to teach our grown-ups is our Maths learning together day!

 

       

 

We work hard to always have a growth mindset. We always try to have a go, we try and persevere and we celebrate our sucesses!

We know that we need to exercise and work our brains. Tackling something hard is a good workout for our brains and helps to make them stronger.

The more we practice the better we get. It doesn't matter if we make mistakes because the more we make, the more we learn from them.

 

                                                            

        

Autumn Term

Our Christmas Nativity 'A Miracle in Town' was fantastic! The children were brilliant, performing loudly and clearly and they all thoroughly enjoyed sharing their hard work with their family and friends.
