Busy reception mathematicians showing off their knowledge and skills.
Thanks to all the children (and parents/grandparents!) who supported our Fairtrade Breakfast this morning. They enjoyed hot chocolate, juice, bananas and toast and jam. Key Stage 2 tomorrow! Also, thank you to the staff and PTA who provided and organized the breakfast.
As part of their topic on tigers, year 2 had a fascinating visit to Marwell Zoo. In school they prepared and performed a Tiger Dance to accompany a reading of William Blake’s The Tyger by years 5 & 6 – reception were a very surprised and appreciative audience. Later, they shared research they had written up about tigers with reading buddies.
Back in school they wrote a recount of the trip to Marwell. Here are two of these pieces of excellent writing.
Here is our tree at the Christmas Tree Festival at Emmanuel Baptist Church. The decorations were made by reception with the help of year 6, and are based on the Christmas carol ‘All Around the World’.
Reception and Preschool shared a brilliant day of daring rescues, complicated investigations, medical breakthroughs and parcel delivery!
Year 6 and Reception enjoyed an afternoon of craft as they made decorations to go onto our tree.
Don’t forget the Christmas tree festival at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Thursday 10th – Saturday 12th December. It is worth a visit just to see all the twinkly lights and smell all the trees, but there is also a life-size nativity scene with dressing up! See if you can find our beautiful tree, with decorations made by Reception and Year 6.
We’ve been out and about!
Every week, children from Year 6 buddy-up for reading with Reception.
