Not forgetting…..

Posted by Reception Staff on Tuesday Nov 19, 2019 Under Uncategorized

During our circle times after the 11th November, we talked about why Remembrance Sunday is an important day and wondered why we wear poppies. Many of the children were very knowledgeable about the poppies and knew why we wore them. The children were keen to make and wear them and some wanted to make their own wreaths to put on the schools Cenotaph. I’m sure you will agree that they did a great job.

Happy Diwali

Posted by Reception Staff on Tuesday Nov 19, 2019 Under Uncategorized

We enjoyed looking at the festival celebrated by Hindu Families around the world. It is the festival of light called Diwali. We listened to the story of Rama and Sita, where Rama rescues Sita from the evil Demon king Ravana. Families light small lights called Divas to light the way home and dress up in beautiful clothes and share delicious foods. If you want to find out more follow the link!

We created our own decorations called Rangoli patterns on paper and had a go at doing Mehendi hand patterns.

Once Upon a Time…

Posted by Reception Staff on Monday Nov 4, 2019 Under Uncategorized

The children returned to school after the half term holiday and found Gingerbread Man parts around the classroom.

After we fixed the parts together we found the hidden message on the back.

The children were delighted to read the story and used the puppet theatre to act out the story.

Later we followed instructions to make our own Gingerbread Men.

We followed the recipe really carefully, measuring scoops and spoons and cooked them in the oven.

The next day we iced and decorated them! Yum Yum delicious 😊

Oven making.

Later we used our imagination and physical skills to build an oven to cook the gingerbread man in. It needed good communication and team work to create and build the oven. Everyone did a great job and we managed to gobble him up before he ran away!
