Reception have had a brilliant time celebrating Chinese New Year. We have had fun making our own dragons after watching some Lion and Dragon dance competitions, used animal puppets to retell the story of the Chinese New Year race and challenged ourselves to try new Chinese food. The noodles were very tasty! I wonder what your child can tell you about Chinese New Year!
Welcome to Reception’s Website page.
Our class teachers are Mrs Malpass, Mrs Assirati and Miss Atkinson.
We also have Miss Raybould, Miss Terry, Miss Simmons, Mrs Willmore and Miss Mitchell working in our classes.
Reception have been exploring Africa and the Savanna desert. We flew on our magic carpet and saw lots of different animals – giraffes, rhinos, lions and elephants! We wanted to find out more about these animals and have made some camouflaged hides so we can watch them without scaring them. Here is one of our hides…. We are particularly interested in rhinos and have talked about how we can save them from being used for their horns. We like Africa and the desert… But where will we be going next?!
Reception were fortunate enough to have ANOTHER visitor this week – Little Bob the Magician! As we have been planning a surprise birthday party for Tracker from Paw Patrol, this was the perfect entertainment. We were amazed at Little Bob’s tricks – he made a handkerchief disappear, introduced us to his magic pet dog and fixed a toy train just by saying ‘abracadabra!’ What a treat!
Reception, we have loved learning about Diwali! We know that Hindus celebrate this festival of light and have learnt all about the story of Rama and Sita. Some of our mums, dads, grans and grandads visited us to help celebrate Diwali too. Together we made diva lamps out of clay, coloured Happy Diwali cards and created our own rangoli patterns in different ways. We enjoyed having our special visitors and look forward to seeing them again soon! In
Reception were lucky enough to have a visit from a storyteller just before half term. She told us a story about rainbows losing their colours and being rescued by the Rainbow Rangers. We enjoyed acting out the story, talking about colours and helping the Rainbow Rangers solve their problems. What a brilliant time!
