Reception

The adults working in Reception this year are Miss Redpath and Mrs Hudson.

Thank you for your kind donations of cardboard boxes - we are now fully stocked up and have lots to choose from! 

Magic

We have started our new topic of Magic and some of us have been making magic wands and creating potions in the potion lab!

Planting

We absolutely love to play outside here in Reception, so we decided to plant some flowers in our spare tyres. We thought it would be nice to watch them grow alongside us. We even managed to pick some potatoes!

Black History Month

We have looked at Bob Marley as part of Black History Month. We listened to reggae music and even learnt how to do reggae dancing! We went on to make African drums and played them to the beat of the songs. We also painted Jamaican flags. Look at how amazing our work is!

Marvellous Me

As part of our topic, we learnt about looking after ourselves - particularly our teeth! We were visited by Mr O'Donovan, a mobile dentist, who let us look inside his van and told us about the importance of looking after our teeth. Following this, a dentist was created in our classroom, which we have loved playing in. 

 

We have settled into Reception nicely and new friendships are starting to blossom!

 

We change our reading books on Tuesdays and our library books on Fridays. Please ensure you read these 3 times a week.
