Reception Autumn 1 Week 2

Date: 13th Sep 2019 @ 5:30pm

  

 

What another great week in Reception!

This week we started our ‘I am Special’ theme in RE. We discussed how special and loved we are by talking about the people who love us. The children then painted a picture called ‘Thumbbody Loves Me’ using paint and our thumbs to represent the people who love us. The pictures look fantastic and the children really thought hard about how special they really are.

This week we welcomed Stella one of our school nurses into the classroom. Stella talked to the children all about the importance of hand washing. The children loved looking for hidden germs on their hands, learning a new hand washing song and becoming germ busters by making posters for the classroom. Thank you Stella, we had so much fun!

Continuing with our Trolls story, the children designed and painted their very own trolls. They used different colours to help express their creative ideas and produced some AMAZING new Trolls for the story. Check out our Twitter @ReceptionTSP next week for a sneak peek of them on display!

On Friday, we celebrated ‘Roald Dahl Day’ by reading The Enormous Crocodile. The children loved listening to what the greedy crocodile got up to. After the story, Reception made their very own crocodile biscuits and showed off their cutting skills by making their own enormous crocodile!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Reception Autumn 1 Week 1

What a great first week we have had in Reception!

I cannot believe how well my little superstars have settled into their new classroom. The children have been excited and eager to come into school every morning and see their friends.

On Tuesday, we had a special delivery! Our class bear ‘Twinkle’ appeared after lunch with a funky hairstyle and a new story book. After looking at the cover we realised it was ‘Trolls’ and that Twinkle had been turned into Princess Poppy from the story. We loved readng the book and talking about all the different things that make us happy. The children were so inspired by Twinkles hair, they wanted to make their own Trolls hairstyle and loved being Trolls during their time in class this week.

On Friday, we met our Year 6 Buddies for the first time after receiving their letters over the Summer holidays. All of the children had a lovely time playing and getting to know their Buddy throughout the afternoon. We cannot wait to work and learn alongside them this year and for them to guide us through our first year of school.

 

Thank you for such a fun week. Have a lovely weekend!

Welcome to Reception

Miss Giles would like to wish you a warm welcome to Reception!

During the Autumn term, PE lessons will take place on Thursday mornings and Friday afternoons. Children must have the correct PE kits with them in school. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term.

Children will be provided with two snacks each day - both provided by school including fruit, vegetables, milk or water.

Bottles of water with a sports cap type lid are also encouraged so the children can drink as and when they need it throughout the day.

Please see the Powerpoint below for all additional information to ensure your child has the best start to Reception.

I am looking forward to our year ahead and I am excited to see what wonderful things the new year brings.

Thank you!
