Wriggly Nativity

We all had lots of fun learning all of the catchy songs and dressing up in our amazing costumes to perform the wriggly nativity.

Diwali

We have really enjoyed learning about and celebrating Diwali in Reception. We created our own rangoli patterns and made lanterns, as well as making and decorating diva lamps using salt dough.

Children in Need

EYFS have been learning about how and why we raise money for  ‘Children in Need’ and how it helps so many children. We loved our ‘Children in Need’ themed crafts and the highlight of our day was meeting Pudsey Bear!

Gymnastics

We have been visiting the hall twice a week for PE. Once a week is for our gymnastics where we build upon our core strength and gross motor skills, we explore ways to climb and move.

 

 

 

Alma Thomas

As part of Black History Month in October we were inspired by Alma Thomas who was an African American artist who used bold and bright colours in her patterned artwork.

Our first visit to forest school

We have enjoyed wrapping up on all of our waterproofs and getting muddy at forest school. We explored all of the areas including base camp, the mud kitchen the digging area and the tyre swings.

 

Amazing Autumn

As autumn draws in we have been noticing all of the amazing colours and textures that this beautiful season brings.

Reception Timetable

Weekly Timetable Autumn

Here is a  copy of the Reception weekly timetable. Across the week there is a balance and mixture of phonics and handwriting, maths, Talk for Writing, reading, PE and forest school and story times. Each session is very practical and interactive and differentiated to each child’s needs and also takes into account children’s interests too. Some weeks will different depending if there is a WOW day linked to a festival or event such as Diwali or fire engine coming in.
