Reception Blog- 5/5/16

This week I am pleased to say that the beans are growing really well!  We are looking forward to planting them out in our outside learning area, but we will have to be careful of inquisitive little fingers!

We continue to look at the growth cycle of plants and are currently studying sunflowers.

We are making the most of the beautiful weather and have even been doing some of our writing groups outside, we have been getting our creative juices flowing and writing about what we can see.

In PE we are working on our ball skills and learning how to control a ball with accuracy, I think we might have some budding football stars!

We are so impressed with the fabulous beanstalks that are coming in from home, the homework is great and we are really pleased that everyone is working so hard on their numbers, phonics and reading.  Well done!

Year 3 and 4 Team B – Fourth place (only 0.5 away from 3rd!)

Year 3 and 4 Team A – First place

A very big well done to all and thank you to Mrs Rouse for all her work with the team this year!

Reception Blog- 29/04/16

Firstly we would like to welcome 4 new children starting in reception with us this week, welcome to Shreya and Rodrigo, who have joined Redruth class and Rohan and Aymaan , who have joined St Austell  class,  We all hope that you settle in quickly and enjoy our school!

Our beans are growing well, as you can see from the pictures; we all get very excited to see how much they have grown each day.

We have been looking at Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers this week and even had a go at creating our own master pieces, they look beautiful!

The rest of the school took part in the “Big Pedal” obstacle course this week, unfortunately reception was unable to take part in it, so we had our own!  Designed by Felix, it took us weaving through cones, over a bridge, then under a bridge to pick up flags, weaving through more cones to the end where we had to hand over our flags!  Everyone had a chance to have a go, it was great fun!
