This week Reception have enjoyed their topic learning all about animals. Today Mrs McGinn brought in some special visitors for the class...Midnight and MissJoke the Guinea Pigs! They arrived in their travel cage, hidden under a blanket. The children were not sure what could be inside. Was it a zebra? Was it a giraffe? Was it Mrs Rimmer? They were very excited to meet them! We talked about how we need to use quiet voices so they don’t get scared, the children were very respectful.  We have drawn pictures of them, fed them, cuddled them and watched their twitchy whiskers!  

Reception have been very busy with their learning this week too. Extending their phonics knowledge and learning some new digraphs and trigraphs. We have been focusing on recalling our tricky words this week, playing games at home and school. Thank you parents for your support! 

We’ve also enjoyed exploring the artist James Rizzi. We love his use of bold, contrasting colours and can’t wait to make some art of our very own!
