Welcome to Reception

Our new topic for Summer 2 is Amazing Animals!We went into the woodland area to make a hideout where we would be able to look out for animals.

We have been observing and caring for tadpoles, eggs and caterpillars. Now we have butterflies, chicks and our tadpoles are getting their legs!

We had a visit from Deb from Eggucation. She taught us all about eggs and how to care for ours.

Reception had a great time at Jodrell Bank. First we explored different planets, what they look like, sound like, feel like, smell like and what the weather is like. Then it was time for lunch after lunch we spent time learning about the sun, planets and stars in the amazing inflatable planetarium. The children had a fantastic time and learnt so much.

Number day! We wore numbers to support the NSPCC number day. We have been baked gingerbread men, checked the amounts of ingredients, oven setting and timings. Created our own charts with a variety of different questions to ask our classmates and recorded what we found out. We found out the most popular pet in reception is a dog and the least popular is a fish. Estimated how many golden eggs we think there are in the class jar and recorded our findings. Used play-dough to work out sums in subtraction smash. Explored and ordered numbers in the woodland trail and outdoor areas during our number hunt.

This week in gymnastics Reception have been practising straddles and jumping off equipment safely.


We wrote letters to Santa and had a trip to Boothstown post office to post them.

In Reception we have been ordering presents by size and weight.

Reception have been reading 'The Little Red Hen'.

We have been busy writing the names of characters and have learnt all about making bread. After tasting different types of bread, we chose our ingredients, wrote the ingredients, wrote the method and made our own bread. Kneading is very hard work :)
