Collage Work

Some of the children have been motivated to continue a large collage of a fairytale castle and backdrop. This picture shows part of a sunshine. It was hard work to rip and fit all the pieces of tissue paper in the drawn shapes.

Rainbow Day

We have had a super Rainbow Day. We learnt about medicines and how important it is to not take medicines without an adult. We talked about how to be safe with medicines. In the afternoon we explored the senses and had an afternoon of P.E, feely boxes, creative music, tasting food and arts and crafting. We were amazed that at the end of the day we saw an actual rainbow!

Flowers in the expert box

We were taught all about spring flowers. What a lovely idea of an object to teach the children about.

Feeling Fit and Healthy!



We were so lucky to have a man from ‘Roots Food’ to come and talk to the Reception children about healthy eating and how to keep our bodies healthy. We made some fruit smoothie which was great fun. In the smoothie was a mix of strawberries, peaches, pineapple, banana and melon. We  all smelt the smoothie and most of us tried it. The children who tasted it loved it- a well deserved snack after all the exercise we did! Mrs Miller and Mrs Lewis thought it was scrummy too!

The Super Sidekick (see below)

We made some super sidekicks linked to a  potato charcter from the text 'Supertato'. In the book an evil pea made mischief and caused trouble in the supermarket. Supertato came to the rescue! We know that Traction Man has a super sidekick called 'Scrubbing Brush.' We talked about friends and what makes a great friend like the sidekicks we have learnt about. We shared the craft resources and had a wonderful time making our own spud sidekicks.


Matching objects to numbers

We had to find the right amount of objects to match with the numbers we had. We had to double check our counting and work out easy ways to do this. We had to take some away or add some more if our objects didn't match the number.
