It was so exciting for us to meet a fireman and try on his equipment. We found out that it's very heavy equipment and you need to be fit and strong to carry it!

Thinking about Remembrance creating beautiful poppies with our Buddies,

Police visit


Acorn's Trip to Acorn Farm

In Acorns we discussed the wind and how it was made. We then created our own kites and tested them outside.

We have been learning about Diwali and acted out the story of Rama and Sita using the puppets.

Making fireworks with chalk and water

Halloween Fun! Mixing colours to make witches potions and carving pumpkins whilst developing vocabulary.

We have been reading the story 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell. We sequenced and orally retold the story, developing deeper understanding of it.

Having fun with our new playground markings and sandpit.

We had a brilliant time during our first 'Buddy Session' with children from Oak Class. We made sandwiches and enjoyed reading to our buddies.

During RE, we have been thinking about how Christians believe that God created all nature and they say thank you during Harvest time. We went for an Autumn walk in our beautiful school grounds looking at nature and spotting the signs of Autumn.

We have been thinking about eating a healthy diet and which types of foods our bodies need to be fit, healthy and strong

During our Marvellous Me topic, we have been discussing our likes and dislikes. We tasted different pizza toppings and voted on our favourite...salalmi came out top! We then made our very own healthy pizza.

Reception children have had a fantastic time settling in and exploring our classroom.
