We have had an excellent start to the new year, with lots of exciting work going on.
Reception started the week with a Dinosaur Planetarium. The children came out buzzing about their experience, talking about dinosaurs being extinct and meteorites. I am looking forward to seeing the work that they produce from this!
Today’s assembly started with a wonderful slide show of what our children have been up to recently, there were lots of photos of the children learning and enjoying themselves both inside and outside the classroom. As the children filed in quietly loads of parents came to join us, it was great to see them all!
The class have been reading Goldilocks and the three bears and so they sang a song based on the story and acted it out. Our blue eyed Goldilocks, Sophie, was brilliant and the singing was superb, we could hear every single word! Baby bear’s voice was particularly brilliant.
One group of children came in dressed in hi-viz jackets and hard hats. Accompanied by some slides they told us about the new building and how they had also done some measuring and building. The new cloakroom is now open. At the opening last Friday the pupils raised £91 for the new chickens.
We then had a song about putting hats and coats on before going out to play while some of the class got dressed ready for play. Again, their singing was brilliant!
Last week we also had a superhero day when the class all dressed up as superheroes. On that day they made some superhero biscuits, the perfect excuse to sing the biscuit song, gobble, gobble, munch, munch!
The alphabet song demonstrated that our children can not only sing well but now know their alphabet.
After the final prayer the children received a huge round of applause for their brilliant assembly with a special clap for baby bear.
What a bright and vibrant display, to greet us in to the new year. Thank you to the Reception children who have shared their paintings with us. They do look fabulous….but can you spot the one which is upside down?!
Mrs Willis and I were very pleased to be able to go inside the new Reception cloakroom extension. They are 20sq metres so will be used for readers or small group work too. They really are impressive and the work is progressing on time.
Miss Noble was so impressed with Zain’s independent writing, that they both came to show me. His recount of his trip to the park, on Saturday, was well written and gave me a very clear picture of what he did. It sounded like great fun!
What a lovely start to the afternoon….well done Zain!
