Term 4

Reception have enjoyed an Easter egg hunt this morning.

Term 3

This week we have been continuing our story of the 'Gingerbread Man'. We have created our own story maps to help us memorise the story and have been practising our letter formation writing characters from the book. 


We are having our two phonics sessions a day and the children are really impressing us! We have now learnt all the Step 2 sounds. Have a go with your child at home with the sounds in their packs! :)


The children had great fun icing gingerbread biscuits, carefully decorating them with edible gems! They also showed their artistic flair by using charcoal to create pictures of the characters in the story. 


Finally, we are practising 'Away in a Manger' for our online Christmas production. We can't wait to show you in a few weeks time!

We have been looking at our new story 'The Gingerbread Man'. Have a look at some of the fantastic things the children have been making this week. We have also been practising and perfecting our letter formation!
We explored our curiosity cube this week which is filled with root ginger! Have a look at what we thought it could be!

Jack and the Beanstalk!


We have been creating our own beanstalks using tissue paper and a handprint for the castle at the top.  We have used Duplo to make tall towers and to compare height.  This week we will be planting our own beans which we will then look after and they will hopefully grow into magic beanstalks!


We continue to learn two sounds each day in phonics.  So far we have covered the following:

s, a, t, p, i, n, m, g, o, c, k


The giant wrote us a letter and asked us to write his shopping list for him.  We have been working hard to perfect our letter formation.  


We have been using the iPads to take photos to create our own images of our friends climbing the beanstalk.

Our topic for the next two weeks is, 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar,' by Eric Carle.

After reading the story, we have been sequencing images and then re-telling the story to our friends.

We are now focusing on the story of Incy Wincy Spider! 

What do you know about spiders?
