During Summer Reception have been busy with Health and Fitness week, Science week and finding out about other faiths. Look on the themed days and RE pages to see our photographs.
Reception enjoyed a trip to Chester Zoo. We all enjoyed looking at the different animals, our favourite part of the day was watching the chimpanzees have a play. We all enjoyed a nice cream and Mrs Kidd even got to feed a duck from her hand.
We have been talking about Lent and we have made out Lent promises.
During Spring term, we found out about Winter. We discussed what happens during winter, what the weather is like and what clothes we wear. We read 'Jack Frost' and'Stickman'. We used the story sacks for each story to retell the stories.
In our RE, we have found out about 'Celebrations'. We had a 'Welcome back to school' party for the new year. We wrote invitations, made decorations and party hats. We planned what we would do before, during and after the party. Look in the RE page to see the photographs!
We also made lanterns for Chinese New Year and diva pots for Diwali.
Winter display and the snowflake challenge!
Welcome back to school party!
During Autumn 2, in RE we found out about Baptism and Advent.
We read the story of 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' . We changed our reading area into a bear cave- complete with a huge bear for the children to read stories to- if they were not too scared!
During Autumn 1 term, our topics were Ourselves and Autumn.
Through our topic of 'Ourselves', we talked about our names, what makes us special, our families and celebrating our differences.
As the weather became more Autumnal, we read the story 'Leaf Man' and used natural objects to create our own pictures.
