We have been making some rather scary looking bat and pumpkin masks today in Reception, ready for a Halloween boogie tomorrow! 🕸
We are always looking for ways to develop the creative sides of our children. This may be through different opportunities to express themselves in dance, drama and art.
Next half-term, your child will be given the opportunity to junk model! Teachers are planning activities for the children to take part in, which link to their areas of learning.
We need your help! Junk modelling needs a lot of junk and so we would like you to save some of your recycling so that we can use it in class. Items that we need must be clean, not glass or tin and have no sharp edges. Paper and cardboard packaging tend to be best. Unfortunately, we cannot accept toilet roll tubes.
Ideas for items you can save include –
Please could you save one carrier bag worth of suitable items to be brought into school?
Your child’s class will be completing their junk modelling project during the week beginning Monday 9th November.
We need to leave all of the materials to ‘decontaminate’ so please can you bring your carrier bag in by no later than Friday 6th November. We can then leave all of the ‘junk’ untouched over the weekend and it will be ready to be turned into our wonderful creations the following week! We will be unable to accept any more donations after this date.
Your child will then get the opportunity to bring home their creations to share with you. No doubt they will gain pride of place in your homes!
Thank you for your support in advance.
Here is a copy of the Reception Curriculum for the second half of the Autumn Term. The children have had a wonderful first half term and we are so proud of them all. We hope they have a lovely last day tomorrow and that you all have a wonderful half term.
The Reception Team
Today, Reception learnt about Tinga Tinga art and the traditional Tinga Tinga Tales from Africa. We looked at where to find Africa on a map and where we are. We read and compared the Tinga Tinga Tales and then picked our favourite, explaining why. Finally, we drew the cover of our favourite! I’ve seen some wonderful drawings and explanations 😊
We have started to use an online system which will allow us to share what your child is doing in school called ‘Evidence Me’.
The ‘Parent Share’ feature in Evidence Me enables you to view observations (complete with photos) via the app or website, showing you what your child has been learning and the new skills they are developing.
We will periodically send you these observations through the Evidence Me app. We think these reports will really brighten up your day!

Good evening Reception, I thought you might like to see a little montage I have put together of our toy afternoon yesterday! All our children were kind, gentle and caring towards other children’s toys. I was super impressed 🤩⭐️
