Christmas Cactus

Our Christmas Cactus is flowering!

Lots of us had a go at drawing our school’s lovely Christmas cactus this week. Some chose felt tip, some colour pencil, and some used oil pastels.

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue came to visit us! Reception had a chance to sit in the cab, see equipment demonstrated and have a go with the hose. It has led to lots of fire fighter role play with the big construction outside! A big thank you to the fantastic firefighters.

Diwali

We have been exploring the Hindu celebration of Diwali. We made pinch pots from clay, and have decorated them using clay tools, paint and glitter. We are going to light them all in the classroom and imagine what it must have been like for Rama and Sita on their way home in the dark with candles shining out!

There's A Police Station in our Classroom

After a class vote, we decided to turn our role play area into a Police Station! Here we are, creating a list of the evidence found at a crime scene (and practicing spelling cvc words while we’re at it!)

Harvest

This week, we were learning all about Harvest, and we looked at the traditional tale of the Little Red Hen, who grew wheat and made bread. Then, we made our own bread! We all agreed it was absolutely delicious.

Spelling

We are getting very good at spelling!

Come and Play

Reception enjoyed a ‘Come and Play’ session this week, where we had the chance to show our parents round our classroom. We played in the doctor’s surgery, made skull masks, showed our parents how to spell words with magnetic letters and made mud pies in the mud kitchen! Great fun was had by all.

All About Me

Dem bones, dem bones. As part of our ‘All About Me’ topic, Reception are reading Funny Bones by Janet and Allen Ahlberg, and we’ve been learning about our own skeletons. Many of us chose to create our own life size chalk skeleton drawings! Beware if you come down to visit reception…
