Stars of the Week and Hot Chocolate Friday 18/11/22

We celebrated World Nursery Rhyme Week! We enjoyed a range of crafts and activities related to each rhyme. We then put on a performance for our grown-ups.

We took part in our annual school Poetry Competition. Reception did a fantastic job performing the poem 'Mice'. We are so proud of our children who won for their individual poetry performance!

We have been learning all about the numbers 4 and 5. We have been exploring the different arrangements we can make using multilink cubes.

This week we have been reading Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper. We finished off the week by making some winter vegetable soup of our own, all taking turns to chop the vegetables and stir in the water - unlike the characters in the story!

We had great fun carving out a pumpkin for Halloween.

We enjoyed playing with the parachute and applying our understanding of positional language.

We went on a shape hunt around school, looking for circles and triangles. We found so many!

We have been learning about the properties of circles and triangles in maths. We also looked at paintings by Wassily Kandinsky and noticed that he used shapes to create his pictures. We decided to make some of our own.

Making good use of our outdoor areas! On a particularly windy day, we felt inspired to make and fly some kites.

REB had the most magical afternoon down at the Forest with Mrs Goodwin. We enjoyed swinging in hammocks, climbing trees, lighting fires and toasting marshmallows.

Today, we took part in a Hoopstarz session. We learned all about how to hula hoop and how to do some special tricks. We showed resilience and kept on trying. We are so excited to keep practising our hula hooping at school!

We have been learning the story of The Little Red Hen. We can now confidently tell the story using our Talk4Writing story map and actions. Today, we baked our own bread rolls. We measured, stirred and kneaded the dough. Once they were out of the oven, we created a tally chart showing our choice of topping. They were absolutely scrumptious!

We had the most amazing afternoon down at the forest with Mrs Goodwin today. We climbed, swung, explored and played, then finished the afternoon off by toasting marshmallows around the campfire.

We all joined in with the Macmillan Coffee Morning by having some tasty treats at snack time.

This week, in Maths, we have been learning about repeating patterns. On Friday, we made repeating pattern fruit skewers. They were delicious!

REB visit the school library!

We had our first visit down to the forest and we had such a great time!
