Cool Cats and Rugby Tots

What a fun-filled day we’ve had today in Reception! This morning, we took part in ‘Cool Cats’ where we played dodgeball and took part in some team games. Then this afternoon during our Rugby Tots session, we practiced running in different directions with a rugby ball.

Reception’s Fruit Pancakes

Today, Reception learned about the importance of healthy eating and a balanced diet. We learned that we should eat five pieces of fruit a day and lots of the children even remembered that they shouldn’t eat more than five cubes of sugar each day. We then used our cutting and spreading skills to make fruit pancakes. The strawberries proved to be the most popular fruit. Fantastic work everyone!

Reception’s Athlete PE Lesson

This afternoon the children in Reception took part in a PE lesson lead by GB athletes Feron Sayers and Ryan Raghoo. We got our hearts pumping with a warm up before participating in relay running races. We all had lots of fun and we would like to say a big thank you to Feron and Ryan.

Reception Busy Bees Fantastic First Week

The children have settled brilliantly into Reception and have been showing lots of examples of ‘Thoughtfulness, Respect and Hard Work’ in their first full week. We have enjoyed reading the story of The Colour Monster, discussing our feelings and exploring colour mixing. We are so proud of all of the children and are very much looking forward to Sports Week next week.

Reception Ladybirds Fantastic First Week

The children in the Ladybirds Reception class have had a fantastic first week back at school! They have settled in really well and have had lots of fun. We have enjoyed sharing the story of The Colour Monster and have explored mixing primary colours. We are very much looking forward to all of the fun activities we have planned for Sports Week next week!

Reception Busy Bees Fun Day

What a fantastic, fun filled day we’ve had today! We all had such a great time on all of the activities, particularly the inflatable slide and pirate ship, and we then cooled off with an ice lolly. Lots of the children said it was the best day ever! The children have been absolutely amazing this year and thoroughly deserved such a fantastic treat. Thank you also to all of the parents and carers for your support over the year.

Reception explore our local area

This week in Reception we are learning about our local area and comparing houses and homes. On our walk we saw lots of different types of houses including semi-detached, bungalows and flats. In our local area we also saw shops, bus stops, litter bins, road and street signs. The children were so sensible when crossing the roads and made sure they looked both ways before crossing, well done everyone.
