Reception (Miss Watson)

Boat Making - Miss Watson challenged us to make a boat that would float and not get Bill wet!

Children In Need - take a look at all of the fun activities that we took part in for Children in Need 2020

Remembrance Day Activities - We watched a video on Cbeebies about why we celebrate Remembrance Day. We talked about the colours that we can see on a Poppy and what they represent. We then made Poppies in lots of different creative ways :)

Making bird feeders - Our Talk for Writing focus this half term is Owl Babies. We discussed different types of birds and what they might like to eat. The children practised their threading skills by making their very own bird feeder to take home. I have asked the children to look closely every day to see if any of the cheerios have disappeared!

Halloween - This week we have explored mixing red and yellow to make orange for our pumpkins, explored the inside of a pumpkin and decorated our own Halloween biscuits! Don't they look yummy?

We have been learning a song called Autumn Colours. We performed it as a class and Miss Clark filmed us. Unfortunately, the file is too big to upload as I would have loved for you to have watched it too. I will keep working on it :) Miss Watson

Scissor skills - developing how we hold scissors correctly whilst cutting out pictures for our Autumn crowns

TEAM WORK - Autumn rolling and problem solving proved to be a huge hit today!

Hello everyone :)


What a busy couple of weeks we have had in Reception! All of the children have settled in really well and have enjoyed getting to know each other and their new classroom.


Every Monday afternoon the children will be taking part in Physical Education (PE) activities in the PE hall. Please ensure that earrings are not worn on this day. Your child's PE kit lives on their peg and they are encouraged to get dressed and undressed independently. The children really enjoyed their first session this week and wanted to go back again on Tuesday!


We have talked a lot about Autumn this week and the changes that come with it - take a look at what we have been up too below.

Autumn - This week we have talked about the changes we can see in Autumn. We read the story 'Leaf Man' and then created our very own pictures using conkers and Autumn leaves.

Autumn Leaves - We read the story 'We're Going on a Leaf Hunt' and decided to go on our own leaf hunt! We then sorted the leaves according to their colour. We have also been learning to sing a new song called Autumn Colours too :)

Hello everyone!


I am really excited to meet you all properly on Thursday and Friday this week. We are going to have lots of fun getting to know each other and exploring the classroom and outdoor space! Please check your letter for your arrival and pick up times. 


This week I have posted The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This week I have been doing lots of gardening and I found 3 green caterpillars. Which minibeasts can you find outside? 


See you on Thursday!
