Planting and Capacity despite the weather!

This week we have been learning about capacity despite the weather not being great.  We dodged the rain to explore size and capacity with the water tray and containers.   We also planted some peas that we will be looking after during the next half term.

Our play practise for our assembly is going well, please could you send in your child’s costume this week so that we can make sure all children have something to wear.

Please try to make our ladies night this Thursday, we would like to see you there if you cannot make it we would be grateful of any raffle prize donations.

Below are a few photographs from our week. 

Summer Term

Thank you for supporting us in leaving your child at the end of the Reception garden.  They have been excellent at coming in by themselves and settling into the classroom.

We are busy practising for our Assembly, some of the children have some words to learn and we would appreciate your help in this.  The date of the Assembly,along with some other important dates, is on our Summer newsletter that will be out on Friday.

This week we will be exploring capacity and writing sentences.  We will also be seeing how well we have practised our spellings.

Please look out for our Summer trip letter to the Black Country Museum.  We will be looking at toys of the past and the present and continuing this work in the classroom.

Happy Easter

We had a great end to the term having a Easter egg hunt in the garden and a party to say goodbye and good luck  to Mikey.  We will miss you Mikey, keep in touch.

Please help your child to continue their reading and spellings over the holiday.

We hope everyone has a lovely, enjoyable, Holy Easter with your families.

Mud Run!

We had a very muddy afternoon and it was not as cold as it has been, so the children had great fun.  Some of the children had to be stopped from going around again!  We ended the afternoon with a hot drink and snack and a film.  Thank you for sponsoring them, please send the money in next week.

Backstage Tour

We had a lovely visit to the Belgrade, we saw backstage, the dressing rooms and went onto the stage.  The children behaved excellently and were a credit to you all.  They asked some great questions and are now very excited at the thought of putting on their own production.

Another busy week!

We have been role playing in our Theatre; getting ready for our visit this week to the Belgrade.  We will be looking around backstage, in the dressing rooms and on the stage.  We are very excited about the visit.  In mathematics we have been exploring how to share, it helped us understand better when we had to share sweets!  In literacy we have been starting to discover how a story is structured and having ago at writing our own.  This week we will have some more read write spell sheets with new words to practise.  Please would you help your child complete these, it really helps with their writing skills.

Mad Science Week in Reception

We had a great week making and designing cars and conducting experiments. Friday was a fun day for all. We made a volcano, a lava lamp, a rainbow with skittles and blew up a balloon with soda and vinegar.

British Science Week Celebrations

THANK YOU!

Thank you to all of the children who made fabulous amounts of effort to come into school dressed as mad or famous scientists today and helped us celebrate our love for SCIENCE!

During the last two weeks, we have all been busy being Scientists, researching the answers to questions we wanted to find out, creating posters to celebrate this year’s theme of ‘Journeys’ and also taking part in a whole school quiz!

In a special assembly this afternoon, we got to share what we had been up to with the whole school and award prizes for the quiz winners and poster winners!

Well done to everybody who took part! We really appreciate your efforts and are very thankful for your kind donations too – we raised over £150!
