A great morning had by staff and children! We were so pleased that the rain held off and we could enjoy a morning packed full of activities! The children were extremely well behaved and worked brilliantly together in their coloured teams showing support and great teamship. A big thank you to all that came to support, it was a fabulous turn out!

Hand Up Morning

posted 17 Jul 2017, 07:24 by Amy Churchyard

The children visited their new classrooms and teachers on handup morning. They had fun exploring their new environments and were keen to engage in learning linked to their new class names of Owls and Bumble Bees
Don't forget to help your child complete their summer challenge:

All about me bag!

Your summer challenge is to fill the bag with 5 things that you can use to tell me about yourself (only 5 things, no more, no less)

The rules are:

·        Decorate the bag as you wish

·        All things must fit INSIDE the bag

Please bring your filled bag in on your first day in Year 1 so that we can get sharing!

Will anyone stop that Evil pea?!

The children were animated by the discovery of trapped veggies! They were keen to make some super observations of their findings and write lists of all of their findings!
The children used their imaginations to think of ideas of how they could rescue the veggies and stop Evil Pea from causing more chaos!

WOW our dinosaur knowledge is amazing! We started of by sharing our prior knowledge of dinosaurs with the adults and our friends. 

Moving on from this we made an EGG discovery which sparked our imaginations. We have been busy building nests, as well as writing lists of things we need to collect ready to keep the baby dinosaurs alive when they hatch. 
We have created masses of dinosaurs using a variety of tools and techniques, we have taken on the role of dinosaurs in our play, we have visited the dinosaur shop and much much more.

WOW our outdoor classroom was filled with beautiful hand crafted creations that the children were proud of! 
It was a lovely morning with the children and their families engaging in lots of Easter challenges, producing some fabulous products. As always we wish to thank all of those who came to make the morning so special, it means alot to the children and the Reception team!
We did have our top three from each class but all of the children were credited for their efforts!

Did somebody say magic beans?!

A mysterious footprint and some gold beans... it could only mean one thing! The children were keen to use their prior knowledge to help solve the mystery and with their instructions a beanstalk grew! They have shown real enthusiasm to explore the traditional Jack and the beanstalk and have been keen to make their own twist on the story. From measuring, to giant paintings we have been doing things on a large scale!
