A big thank you to everyone who left their cars at home today and walked, scooted or cycled to school to help us promote Road Safety Week. Please continue to walk to school as often as possible.
Mrs Baker and the Travel Ambassadors.
We ended our Nursery Rhyme week learning the nursery rhyme Two Little Dickie Birds. We made Dickie Bird pictures using feathers and colouring pencils they’re hanging around the classroom.
This week has been out of this world… We have been learning about space and ways we can get up to space. We started the week off by reading the story ‘Whatever Next’ if you don’t know the story it’s about a Baby Bear who makes a spaceship out of a cardboard box so he can go up to the moon, on the way to the moon he met a new friend Owl and they had a picnic on the moon. We have had lots of fun space activities to do.
The first activity we did was to think and plan how we could get up to the moon. Our morning friends were put into small groups and went outside with Mrs Wojciak to make how they would like to go to the moon, there was lots of lovely ideas of how we could travel to the moon.

“Going to space”
Our Afternoon friends were put into small groups as well but they went outside with Miss Read to make a model of how they would like to travel to the moon. Again there were some lovely ideas just like the morning children.

Olivia and Tallulah PM-
Work together to make a “funny rocket”
We used the Bricks, blocks and the junk modelling to create our ideas outside.
As well as learning all about space we were learning about shapes and what shapes we can see around our classroom and what shapes we can use to make our rockets.
We also used the lick and stick shapes to make our very own shape rockets.
This week in P.E. we did something different and something very exciting! We didn’t go to the hall we went on a wellie walk shape hunt! We received a very important letter from Baby Bear he had lost all of his shapes that he needed to make his rocket. So we had to be super detectives and use are good looking eyes to find all off the shapes. We walked all around the school onto to the field to find the shapes! We have some super detectives in our classroom! They were running around like ninjas finding the shapes for baby bear!
We received another letter from Baby Bear thanking us for all our hard work being detectives to find all his shapes! He can now build his rocket to take him back up to the moon!
Finally, we have decorated our Diwali Pots! And they will be coming home with us very soon!
To finish our week of we are wearing Pyjamas to school to raise money for children in need! We have had lots of Pudsey themed activities, Pudsey colouring, Bears in the water and we have been decorating our very own Pudsey Bear biscuits to take home!
A very big happy 4th birthday to…

The past two weeks have been busy as usual in reception! We have been looking at the story of rainbow fish and linking this with Anti Bullying week, finishing this with decorating biscuits and giving them to our friends and enjoying eating them together! Yum!
We have been making use of our lovely outside learning area, finding letters, building structures practising our numbers and working hard together.
Inside we have been improving our cutting skills, which isn’t easy! We have been enjoying lots of fun phonics, continuing to blend some letters together to make words. In maths we have carried on with number recognition and moving onto adding two numbers together.
