Oaks & Elms (Reception)

We have been reading 'Oliver's Vegetables' this week. We picked strawberries from our garden, made healthy plates of food and checked out our school dinners to see how much fruit and vegetables we had! Yum!

Visit from a paramedic

Fit and well - we are enjoying our new topic!

We are learning all about looking after our minds and bodies. We are thinking about healthy food and drink, exercising our bodies and we are making posters about keeping healthy.

Royal Wedding May 2018

We had such a fun day wearing red, white and blue. We made royal fruit kebabs, flags and bunting. We danced, sang and enjoyed fish and chips outside for lunch! The sun shone!

Summer Term 2018

We started the summer term thinking about the changes that are happening all around us as Winter eased into Spring.

We went outside exploring looking for signs of spring and learnt about the Very Hungry Caterpillar. This fits in beautifully well with our RE topic this half term –‘How can we care for our wonderful world’.

Our writing is coming on in leaps and bounds this term as we aim to write longer more interesting sentences and learn about words with adjacent consonants.

Our visit to Pennywell Farm last week was exciting and we all had a great time.

Moving forward we are learning about our feelings- how we can recognise, name them and talk about them in Speaking and Listening and in our writing.

After half term we will be learning about how to be ‘Fit and well’ and practising for our sports day on June 15th. Following this we will be travelling ‘Here and there’ on our magic carpet.

We will finish off the term with our ‘Finale’ – we will be performing to you again at the annual Reception Bible Presentation.

Bring on the sunshine!

Spring Term 2018

So this term we’re seeing exciting progress in our learning! We are beginning to be able to use our digraph knowledge in our writing, and to spot them in our reading. Our writing table is all full and we are getting through paper very fast! We are learning to write calculations, and have learnt all about the special signs we use in them.

We’ve especially loved the Bear Hunt story, making music and lots of craft activities too.

We’re embracing the cold weather and learning to put on coats, gloves and scarves by ourselves.

World Book Day was a highlight for us and we especially enjoyed seeing the grown ups all dressed up!

The rest of this term is all about Goldilocks and we are looking forward to learning her story and doing some fabulous writing!

Our last week will focus on the Easter story culminating with our visit to church to celebrate as a school.

Autumn Term

Wow! What a great start to the year!

We’ve already made such amazing progress, thanks so much to all the parents and carers for all their help and support.

Our new classes have made new friends, learnt lots about what goes on in school and settled in to our classroom space with joy and growing confidence.

Our theme is respect and we’ve talked about being polite and kind to each other, as well as looking after school property and trying to keep everything neat, tidy and in working order!

Now it’s time to learn all about letters and their sounds so that we can begin to read and write.

Look out for our Fact Finders so that you can find out all about the best ways to support your child and join in with their learning journey.
