Pirates on an Adventure!

Ahoy, Me Hearties! Our topic this term, in Reception, is Pirates on An Adventure!  Our activities in the classroom are all about pirates! We have been having so much fun, learning lots of new and exciting things.

Yazmin used her phonic skills to sort the treasure words and fake words into the correct treasure boxes!

Maddie and Abdulai enjoyed designing their own pirate ships and labelling them.

Ruby, Elissa, Billie-Jo and Lilly-Rose used the numicon and maths symbols to make addition sentences. They told me that when adding the number will get bigger. They knew to find the answer they had to add both numbers together. Fantastic work girls!

Take a look at some of the other activities we have enjoyed doing this week.


Fantastic Reading at Home!

When changing the reading books, Miss McLean was so impressed to see that lots of children had been reading at home over Christmas.

Miss McLean said how lovely it was to read about all of the progress that the children have been making with their reading at home.

A big well done to Elissa Wilson who read 6 times over the Christmas holidays! Such dedication to reading!


Christingle Church Service

Last week in Reception, both Foxes and Hedgehogs went to church to take part in the Christingle Church Service with the Key Stage 1.

We sang some songs, we lit the candles in the Christingle oranges and learnt about the meaning of the Christingle orange. Some children were then given certificates for the art work they gave to the church earlier in December. Then a special guest appeared! Santa!

He handed out envelopes to children from each class and they had little Christmas tree decorations inside!

Craft Club Calendars

In Craft Club, with Mrs Latham, we made calendars. We listened really carefully to the instructions given my Mrs Latham. She told us we needed to use our fingers to scrunch up different coloured tissue paper to make beautiful flowers . It was really tricky getting the different colours inside of one another!

We have had so much fun in craft club this term!
