Reception Busy Bees Weekly Blog

What a fun and busy week we’ve had in Reception. We have been reading the story ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ by Julia Donaldson and the children especially liked the robbers who had a cunning play to try and steal the prize cow! We’ve seen lots of ordering numbers and representing numbers in different ways and the car wash outdoors has been lots of fun too. The children have been absolute superstars and have worked so hard. We are so proud of how well they have settled back into school life.

Reception celebrate Chinese New Year

The children Reception have had great fun today learning about Chinese New Year. We have made paper chain dragons and snakes, lanterns and fans before taking part in a fan dance. The children found out they were born in either the year of the monkey or the year of the goat. We have also been cleaning, dusting and sweeping our houses to get rid of the bad luck ready to welcome a fresh new year.
We would like to say a big thank you to all of our families for their fantastic support over this half term and a big well done to all the children for never giving up and continuing to work hard. You are all superstars!

Reception love to read.

It has been so lovely this week to see all the children in Reception celebrating National Storytelling Week by engaging in lots of reading this week. We have shared our favourite stories, made book marks and storytelling wands and even read our favourite books to our teddies at a teddy bears tea party. Here are some photographs of this week’s reading activities.

Floating and Sinking

After learning about different materials yesterday the children in Reception carried out a floating and sinking experiment today. They made their predictions, tested then recorded their results brilliantly. Lots of children discovered that the metal coin sank whereas the majority of the plastic objects floated.

Who’s that trip trapping over my bridge?

The children in Reception received a special letter from the Three Billy Goats Gruff this morning asking for help. They needed a strong and sturdy bridge so they could cross over to the juicy grass without getting eaten by the troll! Reception were up to the challenge and have built the most amazing bridges for the goats as you can see in the video. Fantastic work once again everybody!
