Snow fun!

Over the past few weeks, we have learnt about the changes that happen in Winter and about polar regions in the North, and South, pole. What a better way to learn about the season of Winter than explore snow first hand! This morning we practised writing our name in the snow and the graphemes we have learnt in phonics. We had lots of fun stamping in the snow listening to the crunching sound.


This week in Reception we have been learning about the season of Winter. We have read the story ‘Jack Frost’ and in our Science lessons we have learnt about the seasonal changes that are taking place around us. We learnt the vocabulary word ‘bare’ to describe the trees in Winter. We went for a walk around our school grounds and found lots of bare trees.

Eric returns to Reception

The children in Reception were very excited to see Eric the Elf had caused chaos in our Reception classroom today. The pesky elf had made snow angels on the floor, threw all of our ‘Wow board’ stars on the floor, threw toilet roll everywhere and drew all over photographs of the children! He also put lots of pairs of underpants on our Christmas tree after reading the book ‘Aliens Love Panta Claus’. What a cheeky little elf he is! I wonder who he will visit next?

Reception meet Santa and his reindeers

What a wonderful surprise we had this afternoon as we visited Santa and his two reindeers Dancer and Prancer. The children were very excited to talk to Santa and had a little stroke of the reindeers. What a lovely end to the week. We would also like to say a big well done to all of the children who participated so enthusiastically in our Christmas concert ‘It’s a baby’. The children were amazing.
