As Christmas is fast approaching, this week we have been reading the story 'The Jolly Postman' and have written Christmas wish lists to Santa. We also learnt about the journey of a letter. To top off our wonderful week we went on a little trip to our local post box to post our own letters, in a hope that they arrive to Santa in time.
Kindness Potion: A full cup of kindess, half a cup of sharing, a nearly full cup of helpfulness, half a cup of laughter and a sprinkle of love.
Is there any room on the broom...?
Today we made our very own bird feeders to put in the mud kitchen and in our gardens at home, as we have been learning all about hibernation and how animals struggle to find food during the winter months.
This week we have been learning all about Bonfire Night and have done lots of creative activities based on the celebration.
We have loved dressing up and taking on the role of different occupations during our independent learning time.
Today was the start of our real life superheros week. During the week we will be focusing on the important jobs of people who help us in our community. Today we had a visit from a Dentist who helped us understand the importance of a brushing our teeth and a healthy diet.
This week we have been learning all about healthy eating. We thought very carefully about what makes something 'healthy' or a 'treat'. We then decided to make our own healthy snack, so we each made a fruit kebab. We even tried some fruits we had never tried before such as Mango.
Following on from our superhero topic, this week we have been reading the story 'Supertato'. Our learning challenges were to create our own 'Supertato's' and make a trap to capture the 'Evil Pea', we had lots of fun.
This week we have been learning all about 'Superheros'. When we arrived at school on Monday morning there was a letter from the 'Avengers' explaining that they needed our help to save Spider-Man. They set us some challenges that we needed to complete in order to save him. We had to find as many supervillians outside as we could, make our own superhero capes, take part in superhero training and follow the clues to save Spider-Man.
What a great first few weeks we have had in reception. The children have explored their new classroom and made lots of new friends!
