Whole school sponsored Biathlon - Mon 15th July 2019
Reception took part in our whole school sponsored Biathlon. We all brought our bikes, balance bikes and scooters to school and parked them in the ‘Wheelspark’. We made sure we wore helmets to keep our heads safe. We cycled / scootered 8 laps of the main playground and then ran 4 laps of the track. We all tried our best and had a fantastic time!
Well done everyone!
Thank you for all your sponsor money - this will go towards making improvements to the playground.
Our school trip to Bluebell Diary Farm - Tuesday 9th July 2019
We had a super day at Bluebell Diary Farm. We met all the animals that live on the farm. We saw the cows that produce the milk that is used to make the ice cream. We had fun exploring the play areas and loved the bouncy pillow, hay bale mountain and corn pit. We ended our day by all tasting a scoop of the delicious ice cream which is made at Bluebell Diary!
The day the ambulance came to school
We had great fun looking inside the ambulance. We saw where the paramedics help people who are poorly or injured.
The day the police officers came to visit
As part of our topic 'Are we nearly there yet?', we are learning about different types of transport. On Wednesday 19th June, two police officers brought a police car to show us. It was really interesting to see inside a police car. We all got to sit inside and the officers let us turn on the blue flashing lights and sirens. We learnt about how police officers keep us safe and how important different types of transport is for them to do their job.
We had a lovely time for our Bedtime Story session. We stayed after school with our grown-ups and wore our pyjamas. We shared our favourite stories and had a bedtime snack – milk and biscuits.
Mrs Coles read us ‘It’s Snorey Time’ written by Meg & Catherine Pybus. We all nearly fell to sleep….Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz!
We had lots of fun learning outside. We made magic wands using natural resources, we painted with conkers and built up our muscles by hammering golf tees into pumpkins. We made our own paint from mud and used a fork to create the hedgehogs spikes. We made a hedgehog using saltdough and twigs. We made magic potions in our mud kitchen, we planted seeds to grow and made an autumnal crown using golden leaves.
Settling into Reception
The children have settled really well and have been busy making new friends. They have enjoyed exploring their new classroom and outdoor area.
