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
Welcome to Reception’s Website page.
Our class teachers are Mrs Malpass, Mrs Assirati and Miss Atkinson.
We also have Miss Street, Miss Terry, Miss Simmons, Miss Barnett and Miss Mitchell working in our classes.
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!
As we have been settling into Reception, we have been enjoying mark making in many different ways. We use paint, pens and chalk to draw and write both inside and outside. We enjoy talking about what we have drawn and have all created a brilliant picture of our families! It has been lovely to hear the children talk about the special people in their lives.
We are delighted that our Reception children are settling in so well. They are busy getting to know each other and their teachers in their new classes. They are having fun exploring all the resources and activities on offer both inside and in the outdoor areas.
This week Reception has been taken over by lots of little Pirates! We have enjoyed reading Pirate stories, writing Pirate sentences, drawing Pirate maps and finding Pirate treasure. We all dressed up in our outfits and built our very own Pirate ships both indoors and outdoors. Some of us even made our own swords and eye patches to add to our costumes! We are looking forward to continuing our learning through our Pirate topic next week.
