Visit from Zoo Lab

Zoo Lab3  Zoo Lab2  Zoo Lab1

Recently the Reception children had a visit from zoo lab, a live animal handling company. They were face to face with many creepy crawly and  held a number of different creatures. The children were very brave when handling giant snails and snakes, sadly Miss Surtees was busy that afternoon so Mrs Clarke kindly stepped in! 


Reception Assembly

The Reception children had a great time performing their first class assembly. They all remembered their lines and spoke with confidence to the audience. We were very impressed with their presence on stage, well done Reception!

Pancakes, Pankcakes, Pancakes

Reception had lots of fun celebrating shrove Tuesday with a class pancake tossing competing. The winner managed four flips, whilst many landed on the floor! Luckily we had some spare ones to enjoy with some honey at snack time.

Child-Led Planning

As of this half term I will be doing child led planning in Reception. 

This encourages the children to become involved in choosing the topic/theme they would like to base their learning around. 

We sit together and suggest ideas, then we vote. The children help come up with activities for the various areas of development and learning. 

The Weekly Plans will be posted in the column on the right each week.
