What an amazing Sports Day! We took part in a relay race, the hurdles, a standing jump, a fancy dress race and javelin throwing. We carried flags for our opening ceremony parade and enjoyed all the whoops and cheers. Thank you to everyone who came!
It was Sports Week in Reception and we enjoyed lots of physical exercise. We learnt a Brazilian Carnival dance, we played cricket with Mr. Stoneman and had a taekwondo lesson from a member of the UK taekwondo squad! We also saw the Olympic torch paraded around the school and we stood outside our classroom with flags and musical instruments cheering it on!
This week we were thrilled with our new topic; the Olympic games! We have been showjumping over ordinal numbers outside, counting the pins we knock down in bowling and trying to win board games by rolling the dice and counting our way to victory!
This week in Reception we had a visit from the fire service to teach us about fire safety. We also got to see a fire engine and all the equipment onboard! We went on a dragon egg hunt and found lots of tiny tricky words inside them. We needed a magnifying glass to see them! We wrote our own knight’s code and sorted all the 3D shapes in the classroom too.
We had a fantastic start to our Summer term, with a visit from the Animal Man. We met a gecko, a snake, a spider called Charlotte and two sand fish! We also enjoyed a messy stay and play with our parents and got our toes covered in mushy peas and baked beans. It was a wonderful sensory experience, full of opportunities for us to use our super language skills. We have also been enjoying the start of our ‘Dragons and Knights’ topic.
It was another busy week in Reception, with the whole school CONNECT performance. The children were fantastic, performing twice to visitors and singing our school song in the quad. Well done Reception!
This week in Reception we have been hopping outside on our numberline and using it to write number sentences. We played ‘Kickball’ in our PE, learnt about the life cycle of a Sunflower and decorated our bird wings. Then on Thursday, to celebrate the diversity in our classroom, we performed to our parents by singing ‘Rockin Robin’ and ‘3 Little Birds’!
This week in Reception we have been balancing outside, learning about the life cycle of frogs, working with numberlines and practising for our school assembly next week. We can’t wait to show you!
We enjoyed a lovely sunny day at Smithills Open Farm! We met so many different animals and went on our very own donkey ride. We even braved a bumpy tractor ride and fed the donkeys in the top field. We met many baby animals too and even a big long scary snake! Thankfully big brave Mr. George was there to hold it for us! We also saw where the milk we drink comes from, as the farmer showed us how dairy cows are milked. All in all it was a super day full of learning!
