Spring Term 2018
World Book Day 2018
Reception Class loved dressing up as characters from their favourite book characters and paraded around the hall to show the rest of the school. They listened while staff members and older pupils described their favourite books. Back in the classroom, they enjoyed listening to some of the stories. We made paper dolls after reading the book 'Paper Dolls' and explored repeating patterns on pants after reading 'Aliens love Underpants'. 
Take a look at our great costumes below. 
Visit to The Church of the Good Shepherd
'Turn around and see'
Art Day 2018
The children in Reception had great fun today exploring lots of different forms of art across the school, including print making, colouring mixing and painting. They also enjoyed listening to our resident artist explain all about the felt making process and creating their own real and imaginary animal patterns using crayons, pastels and pens.
Take a look below at some of the great things they produced!!

Maths Stories
At the beginning of December, Reception Class enjoyed a morning of maths stories with Marion Leeper. Marion told a Christmas story; Father Christmas lost his presents out of his sack. Reception Class experimented to find out which of the present rolled back down the hill, which slid and which stayed still. 
Pumpkin Soup
Reception Class have been reading the book 'Pumpkin Soup' by Helen Cooper. Today we learned how to use a sharp knife safely to chop the pumpkin. At the end of the day we enjoyed the pumpkin soup.
