Chicks - March 2023
On Monday 13th March, we were lucky enough to receive 10 chick eggs to look after in school. They arrived in an incubator to keep them nice and warm, because they didn’t have their mother hen to look after them. On Tuesday, the chicks started to slowly hatch from their eggs. It was very exciting to see them come out of their egg and to see how quickly they fluffed up in the incubator. We then looked after for 2 weeks in school.
Chinese New Year - January 2023
During our busy day, learning all about Lunar New Year, we made a paper chain Chinese Dragon and a silhouette printing of a rabbit. We learnt about the celebration and the different traditions carried out. We also learnt that each year is named after an animal, this year being named after the rabbit.
Christmas in Reception - December 2022
The children in Reception Class enjoyed carrying out many different Christmas related activities over the festive period. These included, Christmas dinner day, acting out the nativity story, making paper chains, christmas cards, printing and designing Christmas trees. We had so much fun all while learning the true meaning of Christmas.
Our Senses Experiment - October 2022
In Reception we have been looking at our five different senses. We enjoyed carrying an activity where we had to smell a range of containers. We couldn't use our eyes to see so we had to use our noses to smell what was inside. The different containers had vinegar, jam, hot chocolate and coffee. Our favourite smell was the hot chocolate and we didn't really like the vinegar.
