Welcome to Reception!
Reception team: Jordan Cockette (Teacher), Kayley Ship (Teacher), Louisa Baker (TA).
What a fun half term reception have had! We started with the children's projects on Special people in their lives. They each gave a talk about their special person and were able to answer questions from their peers. We had some lovely work, including family members, musicians and sporting heroes.
We then looked at sporting heroes, and learnt all about Andy Murray, Lewis Hamilton, Darcey Bussell and Jessica Ennis-Hill. We used the internet to find out lots of information about them, like where they live and the medals/trophies they have won.
We enjoyed exploring space and looking closely at the life of astronaut of Tim Peake. The children used their mathematical skills to build rockets using different resources.
The children came dressed as superheroes for our superhero Week. We looked at the books Supertato and Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam and did lots of secret missions in the classroom.
We enjoyed learning about the Royal family in preparation for our Wedding celebration lunch outside. The children bought in photographs of family members weddings and shared these with the class. We watched clips of William and Kate's wedding and spoke about the different members of the Royal
family. We then discussed weddings we had been part of and shared photos.
Our last week was all about People who help us, and we had a visit from some real Police Officers! They talked to us about their job and the clothes they had to wear. The children had lots of fantastic questions they enjoyed listening to the answers to.
