What a wonderful half term it’s been! We have got stuck in to our Superheroes topic, learning all about real life superheroes and superheroes from stories.

We had an exciting visit from a real life superhero… a police man! It was great to learn all about the amazing things police men and women do to keep us safe.

We have been excellent storytellers this half term, writing wonderfully imaginative stories about a superhero vegetable of our choice, using the story Supertato to inspire us.

In maths we have explored length, weight and height, also odd and even numbers. We have become super number detectives, spotting odd and even numbers everywhere!

We have learnt all about this special time of year, Easter and created a marvellous cross inspired piece of artwork. We look forward to our next topics… Minibeasts! 🐞🐛🦟🕷🪲🐜🪳

What a wonderful first half term we’ve had! We have settled into school life engaging in phonics, writing, maths, PE, science, art, music… the list never ends!

We have made lots of lovely friends and learnt lots of super skills. We have found out what makes us special and unique and have shared these special qualities with our friends.

 

We had a great time sharing our marvellous me boxes with one another and talking about what is important to us. We have been so busy making marvellous memories and look forward to making even more wonderful memories.

Walking in a winter wonderland…

This half term we dived into the wonderful season of winter exploring animal hibernation, snowy weather and that special time of year, Christmas!

 

We became actors and performed our special nativity play on stage, we loved dressing up and singing super songs.

 

We have loved engaging in lots of lovely winter stories such as Owl Babies and Bear Snores On, we even created some marvellous artwork based on these stories.

 

In maths we became experts in prepositional language, ordering numbers to 10 and beyond, counting forwards and backwards to 20 and exploring number bonds to 5.

 

We have written our special letters to Santa and Mr Elf has sent them on his way! We are so excited!

What a wonderful half term it’s been in Reception class! Our exciting times kicked off with the delivery of a dinosaur egg! We observed it in our classroom until suddenly it disappeared…

 

We wrote a newspaper report explaining what unusual things had been happening in our classroom. Also in literacy we dived into an exciting story called The Girl and the Dinosaur, writing a description of a journey we would go on with our dinosaur.

 

In maths we have been super busy exploring addition and subtraction within 10 and number bonds. In science we had a smelly time getting stuck into dinosaur poo, searching for bones or leaves to see if the poo belonged to a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore.

 

We have also been exploring art, music, PE and lots more exciting learning challenges.
