Last week both Reception classes went on a trip to Tesco as part of their ‘People at work’ topic. The children got to experience life behind the scenes in a supermarket and see what it is like to work in a variety of different roles.
The children got to sample delicious fresh fruit and vegetables from the store’s Produce department, make their own bread rolls and taste scrumptious cookies in the bakery. We even got to meet a fishmonger who showed us how to gut a fish!
A fun-filled and educational day was had by all. Thank you Tesco!
Both Reception classes have enjoyed reading ‘Open very carefully – a book with bite.’ After discovering the pesky crocodile had escaped from the book and destroyed their classroom, the children came up with ideas as to where Mr Crocodile had gone to next. Each child was given their own copy of the text to keep, with thanks to the Bookstart initiative.
Where do you think Mr Crocodile has gone???????
Today Reception class 2 played ‘Where’s my balloon?’ to use the positional language we have learnt this week.
This morning, pupils and parents alike were treated to an excellent re-telling of the nativity story. Children from our nursery and reception classes led a superb performance which included many wonderful songs, brave acting and (of course!) lots of ‘wriggling’. See if you can watch the excerpts below without wriggling yourself!
Reception Class 1 and 2 both had a wonderful trip to Brockholes Nature Reserve. We searched for ‘tree cookies’, played running and hiding games, built dens, hugged trees and made mud. We also walked A LOT!
Reception worked in their groups to build space stations, rockets or a space buggy. The children are really enjoying the topic of ‘Space’!
As part of our topic on pirates the Foundation Stage had a swashbuckling dress-up day!
We had so much fun singing sea shanties, making treasure maps, talking like pirates and lots, lots more.
A great time was had by all (including the teachers!)
Nursery and Reception
Enjoy seeing the wonderful cast of our Nursery and Reception nativity; ‘The Sleepy Shepherd’.
Miss Ryman’s class, Reception Room B, have been hard at ‘work’! Take a look at us making friends, playing in the sand and water areas, building models, painting pictures and lots more!
