This week we have been looking at the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’ by Eileen Browne. We decided to try some of the different fruits in the story to see if we liked them. Some of us really liked them….others not so much! It was great fun trying the fruits and some of us pulled some very funny faces when we tried them!
As mentioned in our last post, we have turned our outside construction area into a Building Site so we can pretend to make new buildings to match the building work going on in school. We saw a huge crane the other day, which was very exciting! We hope it comes back so we can go and see it.
Lastly, on Friday it was Children in Need day. Thank you to everyone who donated £1 🙂 We had great fun dressing up as local heroes and acting out our important roles. Check out our pictures of all the fantastic Nurses, Doctors, Teachers, Firefighters, Vets, Beauticians and many more that come through our door on Friday 🙂
On the last day of term, the Easter bunny visited Reception. He hid pictures of Easter eggs in our outside area. All the children found one and worked together to make sure we had found them all. Then we swapped them for a chocolate egg.
On Monday 24th March the School Nurse visited to teach the children in Reception about good hand hygiene. We had fun adding a ‘magic gel’ to our hands. When we put our hands into the light machine it showed where our hands were dirty. We washed our hands and checked that they were clean. The Nurse said that we were ‘Champion Hand Washers’ and gave us all a certificate. Well Done Reception!
Following our ‘Out of this world’ theme for World Book Day the children in Reception are embracing the theme of ‘Space.’ We shared the book ‘Whatever Next’ and the children asked if we could bring a special toy to a picnic on the moon- just like the bear in the story.
The first thing we needed were jet packs that we could wear on our backs. We wrote to a special toy and invited them to come to school. On Friday we brought our special friend in from home and made our sandwiches, then we were ready to zoom to the moon!
Our very own rocket in the classroom
Ready to go?
Zoom to the moon!
Sandwiches taste better when you make them yourself.
