Spring 2 Week 2

What a great Book Week Reception have had! They have written some lovely setting descriptions for our book this week, A Sharing Shell, which is all set under the sea. Children were also lucky enough to do some buddy reading with Year 4 on Wednesday afternoon and enjoyed hearing some stories read to them by the older children. Well done on another great week Reception!

Collective Worship Song

Dear Parents,

Here is Reception’s song for our Collective Worship which is taking place on Wednesday 20th March. Please encourage your child to practise with the music. I have also uploaded the lyrics below, the song is called ‘Down there under the sea’.

Thank you.

 

Lots to see in the big blue ocean,
Lots to see in the deep blue sea.
Lots to see in the big blue ocean
Down there under the sea!

Lots of fish in the big blue ocean,
Lots of fish in the deep blue sea.
Lots of fish in the big blue ocean
Down there under the sea!

Whales and sharks in the big blue ocean,
Whales and sharks in the deep blue sea.
Whales and sharks in the big blue ocean
Down there under the sea!

Crabs and shells in the big blue ocean,
Crabs and shells in the deep blue sea.
Crabs and shells in the big blue ocean
Down there under the sea!

Down there under the sea,
Down there under the sea!

Spring 2 Week 1

Stars of the week: Gabrielle and Javon

Reception had a mythical land exhibition before half term to show off all their hard topic work! Children presented their work in their chosen groups; Unicorns, Fairies, Mermaids and Wizards and really enjoyed talking about what they had created. Thank you to Year 1 and Year 2 for coming to watch!

Our Trip to the Cathedral!

Reception had a lovely trip to Southwark Cathedral last Friday. Children have been learning all about ‘Special Places’ this half term in RE and we were lucky enough to visit the Cathedral for a little tour. Children explored different areas of the Cathedral, discussed different events which take place there such as baptisms and weddings and we had a look at the lovely stain glass windows.

Spring 1 Week 5

Stars of the week: Astrid and Albert

Reception have been working on odd and even numbers this week! Children have really enjoyed sharing their numbers into  groups using bean bags and hoops, then worked out if a number was odd or even by looking if the groups were equal or not. Children have produced some excellent maths work this week, well done.

Spring 1 Week 4

This week in RE,  Reception have been learning all about peaceful places. We discussed different areas that we find peace in our classroom and different areas around the school. We then went on a very lovely peace walk in the Peace Garden and around our school grounds. We listened out for peaceful sounds that we could hear, flowers we could smell and spotted lots of different buildings!

Spring 1 Week 3- Outside learning

Stars of the Week: Joshua and Caitlin

This week Reception have been  busy with their outdoor learning. As it has been very cold, children have had to do lots of moving around to keep their bodies warm! This week children have enjoyed exploring and learning outdoors using lots of different equipment like balancing beams, bikes and hoppers. Reception have also been doing some building outside with lego blocks, creating their own homes. Well done on another excellent week Reception!

 

Spring 1 Week 2- My Special Place

Stars of the week: Belen and Krislyn

This half term in RE, Reception are looking at places which are special to them and special places for different religions. As a class, we have started a book all about our special places and why they are important to us. In our discussions, we had lots of different countries, places in our homes and religious buildings that are all special to us. Well done on some great RE work Reception.
