We had a fun filled day today at the farm. First a tour of the farm where we met lots of different animals, had the chance to hand feed some animals and also hold a baby chick. After lunch we split into 2 groups, each group had the opportunity to explore the adventure playground and go pond dipping. The children found different creepy crawlies including a blood worm, ramshorn snails and some frog sprawn!

We had a wonderful visit to Pizza Express yesterday. It was Reception’s first school trip and they were all FANTASTIC!! All staff on the trip commented on how mature and responsible children were when walking to and from Pizza Express, including crossing roads. They listened brilliantly, followed instructions from Tom and Jack and joined in with all activities. They were superstars!

We learnt about kitchen safety, how to make a pizza and about different ingredients used for pizza making (we even got to taste some!). Have a look at the photos of our pizza making fun!

Reception had a great week celebrating World Book Day. It was great to hear all about the children’s favourite stories and characters. I now have a few new favourites to add to my list!

It was wonderful to see lots of different costumes on Friday, especially those links to your child’s favourite book! Thank you to all parents and carers who helped to create such fantastic outfits!

Here are some photos of the fun we had on the day!

Reception had a great time yesterday moving a mile around school. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to move a whole mile around the school (10 laps) but the children really gave it their best shot! The next time Reception Move a Mile, we will start a little earlier to make sure we have enough time to run at least a mile!

We also talked about doing a sponsored Move a Mile in the future to raise some money for our chick eggs, we even talked about dressing up as chicken to do it and getting the parents to do it with us!

Keep a look out for information regarding chicken egg fundraisers and how you can get involved.

Thank you to everyone who came to watch our Cock a Doodle Christmas! I’m sure you will all agree that the children were amazing! They have worked very hard learning their lines, songs and actions.

They also looked brilliant! Thank you to all the grown ups who helped to buy and make costumes.

I have attached some photos of the fabulous performance!

Thank you to everyone who made a donation towards our chick incubator. We raised over £70: an excellent start to out fundraising! We will be doing more chicken related fundraisers in the New Year. Let me know if you would like to be involved or if you have any ideas.

Thank you again.

As part of our Autumn topic some owls came to visit Reception.

We found out lots of interesting facts about owls, we got the chance to hold some owls and watch them fly around the hall! The owls also popped into assembly to deliver a message to Yr 6!

We have had a great first term in Reception and we ended the half term with a visit from The Teddy Bear Hospital! We had some very sick bears and animals (and minions) who will hopefully be feeling much better now after their visit from Doctors, Nurses and Dentists. We learnt about first aid, healthy eating, our bodies and how to look after our teeth.

Here are some photos from the afternoon.

Enjoy your half term, see you on Tuesday 1st November.

Mrs Ryan
