What on earth happened to our classroom this morning?!
We have had a very busy week so far! On Tuesday it was Pancake Day so we made some delicious pancakes. Have a look at our pictures to see how much we enjoyed them. On Thursday we celebrated World Book Day. We looked fabulous in our costumes and we had lots of fun sharing our books with each other and the older children.
Baby Bear went to the moon! Have a look at our space pictures...
A special guest arrived Tuesday morning... in a cardboard box! to introduce our new and exciting topic this term 'We are going on a Journey'. The children had to try and work out where the special guest was going by looking at the belongings he had brought with him. Some children thought that Baby Bear was going to the park for a picnic because he had brought his tasty lunch with him but some children thought he might be going into space because he had his space boots with him! Stay tuned to find out where Baby Bear's journey will take him...

We had fun raising money for Children in Need
Something very exciting happened today! We had some special people come into school to show us how to press the apples that had come from our apple trees at school. We even got to taste the delicious apple juice that they made! Mmmm!
Here are some photos from our lovely Autumn walk. The rain didn't stop us!
We have been learning about the 7 colours in a rainbow and we have also thought about how different colours can make us feel. Below are some pictures of us experimenting with colours. We chose two colours that we wanted to mix together and tried to guess which colour they would make!
A big thank you to all of those parents who came to in to join us on our Diwali day. Both staff and children thoroughly enjoyed the day and we could not have done this without you! Please enjoy the photos from our brilliant and colourful day.
Our next exciting topic in Reception will be 'A Colourful World'. Please take a look at our Colourful World topic map to see the sorts of things that we will be getting up to in school.

We have been thinking all about our bodies. We have talked about what the different parts of our bodies are called that we can see and had a go at labelling these. Then we looked at our skeleton and bones! Look at our pictures of the bodies we have built and the bones we have created from play dough. We have also thought a lot about our senses and which parts of the body help us to sense different things. So we went on a sound walk to test out our listening ears.
Our first exciting topic in Reception will be 'Marvellous Me'. Please take a look at our Marvellous Me topic map to see the sorts of things that we will be getting up to in school. There is even a section that might give you some inspiration for activities you can do at home to help your child a long the way!
We have been very busy during our first few weeks of school as you can see from our photos! We have enjoyed making our own jellyfish and rainbow fish as well as our very own flags to go with our sandcastles. We have also been exploring our very own rock pool and talking all about what me might see and do at the seaside.
Starting school can be a difficult time for both children and parents BUT... Class REH have settled in extremely well and I am very proud of every single one of them. Here is to a super fun-filled year of learning in Reception!
