We are really pleased with how our Christmas nativity went and are very grateful for the wonderful turn out of parents, carers, friends and family. Here are some videos of the children singing the songs for you to enjoy.
We learnt all about the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We dressed up as the characters to retell the story, explored oats that are used to make porridge, and we even made some porridge of our own! When we tasted it most children gave it the thumbs up!
During our topic of people who help us we learnt all about people in the community as well as people who do different jobs to help us around our school. After visiting the fire station we turned our role play area into a class doctor's surgery and enjoyed making up illnesses and injuries for ourselves and our friends! Then we had special visits in class from Mrs Wicks who works in the office and Mr Hornibrook the caretaker. We practised asking questions to find out all about what they do.
We had a wonderful trip to the fire station. The firefighters showed us all of the special tools in the fire engines, even their tea and coffee machine! We had the opportunity to sit in the fire engine, the boat, and also to spray the hose! We even got a bit wet when the firefighters played a trick on us with the hose! We got to see the firefighters slide down the pole and we heard the alarm sound that tells the firefighters when they have a call-out. It was a great trip! Here are some photos of what we got up to.
We celebrated Diwali by wearing our special clothes to school and sharing all our Diwali news from home with our friends. We made decorations, had mehndi painted on our hands, bindis on our heads, danced to music, and made some yummy coconut barfi to taste.
Here are some photos from our first term in Reception. We have all settled in really well.
