Reception have had a great week dressing up and singing this week.

They have been super stars singing in assembly with their new favourite hymn, Our God is a Great Big God. 

Reception have been working hard this week learning new sounds and blending in phonics. Sorting, mixing and matching in maths and continuing to explore the story of Goldilocks and the three bears. 

However the most exciting thing to happen this week was celebrating our first birthday! The children were very keen to celebrate their friend turning five so we sang Happy Birthday, made birthday cards and played party games in the afternoon. 

Great fun was had by all and it is lovely to see their new friendships continue to blossom. 

This week in reception we have building on our skills. We have really been building our independence skills this week while Mrs McGinn has been away. We are looking forward to seeing her again next week.

Well done Reception.

This week the children in Reception have been exploring their own interests and leading their own learning. We have had a direct phone line to the Paw Patrol tower, dialling phone numbers and talking with the pups. We've also been on a bear hunt, through the swishy, swashy grass and the squelchy mud! We couldn't go over it, we couldn't go over it so we had to go through it! 

Reception are now taking full advantage of all of the learning areas, thank you for sending in  their wellies! They have taken part in their first dough disco and can roll, splat and pinch. This will help to make our hand strong for writing. But the most exciting part of the week was meeting Patricia the Parrot! she loves numbers, counting and playing games, as well as making the child laugh!
