Spring 2 Week 3

Stars of the Week: All of Reception!

Well done to everyone in Reception for an excellent week! We went to the Sea Life London aquarium this week and had a lovely time. We saw seahorses, rainbow fish, turtles and penguins (along with many more) during our visit! Children behaved very well and had a very memorable time. Take a look at some of our photos below.


World Book Day!

Reception had a wonderful World Book Day, it was lovely to see all children dressed up as different book characters! Thank you parents for all your hard work and support on this day, it really makes a difference to the children. Every child has completed a World Book Day piece of work,  where a photograph of themselves in costume has been stuck in and children have written about their outfit. Enjoy some of our photographs below!

Spring 2 Week 1- Habitats

This half term Reception are learning all about Habitats! We have started a new class text in English, The Rainbow Fish, and children wrote some descriptive sentences about the colourful scales they can see on the fish on the front cover. Reception are working hard on their sentences, really thinking about capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

Spring 1 Week 5- History Day

Yesterday Reception had a wonderful time celebrating History Day with the rest of Cathedral School!  Our theme was ‘The History of Me’ and lots of children came in national dress outfits or colours which represented countries of their family.  Miss St Lewis came as Mary Seacole, a Jamaican born British nurse who helped many in the Crimean War and Sara dressed up Welsh costume to represent her mothers nationality. Here are some photos below, enjoy.

Spring 1 Week 3- Jesus Helps the Sick!


Stars of the week: Lennon and Heidi

This week in RE, Reception have been learning all about Jesus the healer. We read the story of how Jesus healed the paralyzed man and a man who could not see, discussing the miracle which had taken place! Reception then passed around the class teddy, who was also sick, and we all spoke about people who help us when aren’t feeling well. Reception then prayed for other children who are sick and need God’s help.
