Dear parents and carers,

 

Even though our Reception children are not at school at the moment, we do not want them to miss out on any learning! Our Reception Home Learning folders contains a range of fun, engaging and challenging activities that will help children to practise the skills they have been learning in school. The activities will support all 7 areas of learning in EYFS Curriculum. There are also lots of ideas about ways to stay active indoors. Please see the live streaming sessions below.

If your child or you have any questions about the home learning at all, please feel free to email Mrs Rahman (Year Group Leader) and she will get back to you as soon as she possibly can to support you.

 

Please check the school website regularly for updates.

 

Thank you for your hard work and continuous support in these uncertain times.

 

Stay Safe.

Inspire to achieve, persevere to succeed

Welcome to Reception 

 

We believe children in our Reception classes should learn how to be healthy, happy, communicative, sociable, curious, active, and ready and equipped for the next phase of life and learning. We work closely with parents and carers to support every child to achieve this. We believe Parent involvement is crucial: parent support and an active home learning environment make a huge difference to children.

 

We are always interested in feedback from parents, to help us know how well we are doing and how we need to improve. You can feed back to the Reception team by clicking on the contact form  button above.

Valentine's Day 2020- We gave a smile to our friends and told them how much we love them...

On Friday the 7th February Reception went to the Broadway theatre to watch 'What a Wonderful World'. It was an interactive play where children were invited on the stage, it was very exciting and they loved taking part in the show.

On the 5th February 2020 Amarelo class performed the story 'Whatever Next' in front of parents, carers and Nursery children. They were very confident in acting out and singing the space song using their amazing rockets that they have made at home. Everyone was super proud of their performance! Well done Amarelo class.

Our Reception children had a great story telling assembly on Friday! Mr Fox acted out one of our favourite stories Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson with such excitement and brilliant expression.

Can we grow some fruit to eat miss?” Said Dezel. 

“Yes can we grow some Strawberries they are sweet and juicy.” Leonna

What a great idea the children in Holud class have had. 

“Miss can we grow some potatoes then we can cook with them.” Siloam

”Miss water the plants” Eesa

”We have to make sure they have lots of sunshine and water so they can grow really big.” Fatima

 

The children have worked hard all year caring for their plants. Making sure they water them everyday and ensuring they remove any weeds from around them. Look their hard work and team efforts have paid off. We have so many beautiful strawberries and potatoes.

 

 

 

In Holud class we have been so fascinated with mini beasts that we decided to hatch our own Butterflies from chrysalis. (“It’s not a cocoon, moths are in cocoons we want butterflies.” Larisa) we were lucky enough to have two very rare Scarce Swallowtail Butterflies. We cared for them bringing them flowers and fruit every day then when it was time we released them into our garden to enjoy our beautiful plants. We also found pupa containing ladybugs. Again we cared for them once they had hatched out. We enjoyed seeing their bodies change colour each day until they were ready to be released into the garden.

When the Naughty Bus came to Yellow Class!

 The children in yellow class read the ‘Naughty Bus’ story and acted out the story using busses they made in school. All the children really enjoyed telling and making their own version of the story that the class made a book of thier own.

 

As a result the children wrote labels and sentences about the bus, describing what it did and what it looks like. fantastic work was produced at such a young age. well done everyone!

Dinosaur Exhibition December 2018

Still image for this video
Everdhe and Holud

We all worked so hard at home creating our dinosaur models. We used lots of different materials to crest our own Jarrasic parks. What we didn’t realise was that there was real dinosaurs on the Shaftesbury site though. Can you hear them???
————————————————————

In Holud class we have been looking at repeating patterns. We decided to see if we could make repeating patterns with fruit. Some of us used 2 pieces of fruit and some of us used 3 pieces of fruit. We have also used other items to create repeating terms like: conkers, pine cones and shells. 

 

We have also been reading the story 'Handa's surprise'. Handa is a young girl who lives in Africa. She decides that she wants to surprise her best friend who lives in the next village with some fruit. Handa goes on a journey only to find that she is the one who is surprised....... All her fruit is gone and now there are tangerines instead.

 

Some us haven't seen some of the fruit before from the story so we had a fruit tasting session where we tried: Mango, pineapple, orange, avocado, guava, banana and passion fruit. The passion fruit looked a bit strange but some of us were brave enough to try it. 

We love cooking in Holud class. So far this term we have made: blueberry cupcakes, gingerbread men, fruit kebabs and pizza faces.

 

Dear Zoo

Year 5 children Buddy Reading with Reception Pupils during World Book Week

 

This term we are learning about transport. We discussed all different sorts of transport and this week's focus in Amarelo class was on boats, ships and sailing. Did you know that sailors greet each other with ''AHOY!''? Children from Amarelo Class in Reception knows that and they know a range of different songs regarding ships and boat and sea. We learnt some new vocabulary too.

During this cooking session, we counted oranges, we halved them, filled them with some vegetarian friendly jelly and let it set. After that we got a bit creative and made an edible flag. 

Look at us singing our sailors' song!
