Reception

2017-2018

Autumn Term

In Reception, we have been learning about Diwali.

We read the story of Rama and Sita so we could understand how Diwali began. We have then looked at how Diwali is celebrated. We have made diva lamps, made rangoli patterns using pattern blocks and decorated our hands with mendhi patterns.

2016-2017

Spring Term

Reception have been enjoying finding out all about Winter this half-term.

They have read the story of ‘Ridiculous’ about a tortoise who doesn’t want to hibernate in Winter and have discussed which animals hibernate, migrate and adapt to the cold weather.

They have made snowmen in Welly Wednesday using chalk and have found objects in the outdoor area that they used to create a Winter sculpture.

In Welly Wednesday, they also had great fun making bird feeders using Cheerios and pipe cleaners as they were worried that the birds had no food in Winter!

Autumn Term

Reception had a great start to school in their first full time week!

They made face biscuits using icing sugar and sweets – they were very yummy!!

They also had their first P.E lesson – they all enjoyed it and were very tired after all their ‘exercises’!
