Remembering, Celebrating and Helping

Here in Reception, we have been as busy as ever learning and exploring the world around us!

Remembering…

The children really enjoyed learning more about why poppies are so important to us at this time of year. They painted their own beautiful watercolour poppies and worked together to make a fantastic large scale poppy collage.

Celebrating...

We learned more about the celebration of Diwali, experimenting and exploring colour and pattern…

…using computer programs to create interesting symmetrical patterns and mendhi patterns…

…experimenting with oil pastels to create mendhi patterns…

and soft pastels to explore rangoli patterns…

Helping…

The children also enjoyed Children in Need day, understanding more about why and how we can all help others in different ways.

Like so many other children around the country, Reception loved joining in with Joe Wicks…..Go Reception!!

Drawing their own Pudsey bears…

Best wishes and take care,

Spooky Fun!

The children had a great start dressing up in their fantastic Halloween costumes – they looked amazing and really loved meeting up with their classmates after the half term break.

There was a lot of spooky dancing to ’Ghostbusters’ and ‘Monster Mash’.

Rolling, squeezing and pinching play dough to make bats, witches, ghosts, cats and pumpkins.

Just like in our favourite stories ‘Room on the Broom’, ‘Meg and Mog’ and ‘Winnie the Witch’, we mixed amazing potions, counting our ingredients then drawing and writing our spells.

The children used technology to create spooky pumpkins…

Over the week, the children printed pumpkins, painting on scary faces….

Over the week, they also created their very own spooky spider 🕷, using modelling material to roll, squeeze and pinch, thinking about colours, shape and how many eyes and legs their spider would have…

Here are their incredible spiders! Each one unique and amazing!

And finally, here are Reception, looking brilliant in their costumes…

The Reception Team thank you all for your fantastic support in making this such an enjoyable time for the children,

Take care and stay safe,
