Welcome to Reception
Mrs Cooke and Mrs Winmill are our teachers.
A judo taster with Glynn Fidgeons
This morning, our Elf Owls (class 6) joined Glynn on the mats to learn some judo moves. They had so much fun and sat very politely when they needed to listen to Glynn. Just look at the photographs to see their smiles! Don’t worry, Little Owls (class 5) will have a turn next week.
Our Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
We were going to have a fishy Friday picnic lunch to kick off our Jubilee celebrations but the weather was a bit GUSTY and CHILLY. We decided to eat indoors.
In the afternoon, each class took turns play different traditional games. We had big rope skipping, hopscotch, hoop games, parachute games and lots more. We enjoyed it a lot and the afternoon went by very quickly.
There’s been lots of trouble in Reception lately, but don’t worry, it’s not the children. It’s been that naughty Pea! Naughty Pea escaped from the freezer and has been causing absolute chaos. Thankfully we had Supertato, risking his life, to help catch Pea as the children never knew just what the classroom would look like each morning – Class 5 has been an awful mess. Thank you, Supertato, for all your help.
People Who Help Us
Reception had a lovely surprise this morning! 🚒🔥
The excitement of squirting the hose is going to be the topic of conversation for a few days and I think we now have a lot of children who want to become firefighters when they are older!
We have had some great discussions about all of the other ways firefighters help us and how anyone can become a firefighter!
Thank you to the team who visited us.
There were some spooky goings on in here this morning…
Little Red Hen Bakery
Inspired by the story of the Little Red Hen, we decided to help her make her bread. It was so good we had customers queuing to buy it at our Bakery.
Commando Joe’s Mission
Commando Joe set us a mission. We had to use our imaginations and teamwork to help Tanisha. We crossed raging rivers, avoided crocodiles and traversed dangerous bridges. It wasn’t a mission impossible – we were ace cadets!
We Love Skipping
We learned some new skipping skills this week and put them to the test on Friday at our school Skipping Festival. 8000 school children were taking part in the Skipping Festival today around the country and we did our school proud. We are SUPER SKIPPERS – Mrs Ramsay had a job getting good photos, we skipped that fast. We are especially good at skipping with the big rope. Taking it in turns to skip while the teachers turned the rope, we counted the jumps, some of us beat our personal best and some of us were able to get really high scores. Great fun.
Looks like we have our very own house band with their own X Factor making music with their “junk” instruments.
