Autumn Term 1

Week beginning 11th November 2019

On Monday morning we received a mysterious parcel in the post. It contained an egg and lots of snow. We think that it could be a penguin egg and we've been finding out all about penguins.

Opening our parcel...

We've been fascinated by the penguin cam from a zoo in the Cotswolds. Lots of us have been closely observing the penguins and even drew what we could see!

We learnt all about how penguins huddle to keep warm. We loved creating our own huddle. Some of us were baby penguins, tucked in the middle. The adult penguins took it in turns to be on the outside.

Week beginning 28th October and 4th November 2019

Stick Man

We have absolutely loved our class book 'Stick Man' and have been enjoying lots of activities as a result of reading it.

We enjoyed exploring watercolour paint. Some children drew and painted Stick Man.

We've loved creating our own Stick Men during child initiated time.

Our fabulous 'family tree' for Stick Man to live in.

This week Spiderman set us some superhero challenges. We've designed and made skyscrapers, superhero potions, superhero costumes and more. We've been so excited to explore our newly decorated classroom and our role play area has been very popular too.

There has been drama in Reception Class this week! After reading 'Supertato' together the Evil Pea started causing havoc! Mrs Dyer's Super Squash went missing and so did our Supertatoes! The Evil Pea left us a message with challenges to complete before he turned our potatoes into mash. The children created 'Wanted!' posters to hunt down the Evil Pea and built traps to catch him.

Update: 4/10/19

In an exciting twist at the end of the week, we finally caught Evil Pea and put him back in the freezer! Reception Class were so relieved to know that Evil Pea can't cause any more trouble!
