   Christmas Jumper Day!



The children in Reception performed "A Wriggly Nativity" for their parents on Friday. They all did a terrific job and looked amazing!





On Friday it was Superhero Day in Reception.

During the week the children had been given their Superhero Learning Powers - Risk Taking, being Reflective, Resourceful and Resilient and making good Relationships.



Superheroes at work!




The children in Reception had a great time wearing their pyjamas for Children in Need.





This week the children have been learning about Divali. We have been making puppets, Diva lamps and using playdough to make Mendhi patterns. We have also been making up some Indian dances. 



This week the children in Reception visited the church. We read the story 'Puddles Lends A Paw' before going to the church and then looked for all the places mentioned in the story. 




The children enjoyed finding all the places that Puddles the cat had visited.

Reception took advantage of the lovely weather today and went on an Autumn walk. We saw lots of ladybirds, there were black ones with red spots, red with black spots and some yellow ones. We walked to the environmental area and around the school field.




We had a lovely time but were very tied when we got back to the classroom!

We have been exploring the Trim Trail !



The children in Reception have settled well into their new school. They have all been very busy.
