A trip to Lytham!

Last Thursday we went on a trip to the beach! The weather was fabulous and the company was excellent. We had a ride on the little train, bounced on the trampolines and had a picnic on the beach. Here are some photos of our day:

Dress Up Friday!

Well done everyone for doing your challenges! This week’s treat was a dress up afternoon and what fabulous costumes everyone wore! Here are some photographs of our wonderful outfits:

Ahoy there!

Shiver me timbers Jim Lad! We’ve been having a piratey old time here in Reception this half term! We have set sail for shores unknown in our pirate ship:

and have encountered all sorts of scurvy sea dogs on our way!

We’ve described pirates in our Literacy books and we have written messages in bottles; we have made our own jolly rogers and we have painted parrots! We have been reading lots of pirate stories and singing rousing sea shanties!

We have also been practising our athletics skills in preparation for Sports Day!

Look our for more aquatic adventures as we continue on our maritime themed Summer term!

Manor Heath Park

What a wonderful morning we had at Manor Heath Park! We saw butterflies, caterpillars and cocoons, quails and terrapins and loads of beautiful and exotic plants!  We had great fun in the park and some of us even climbed to the very top of the rope frame! Everyone was really brave and practised all the skills we have been learning this year in Reception Class!

Planting seeds

Reception class have been busy planting seeds today! We decided to make the most of the beautiful weather and spent the afternoon up in the wildlife garden with our trowels and our compost.

We planted cucumbers, carrots, cauliflowers, peas and beans and labelled our own plant pots:

We watered our seeds and put them in the greenhouse to keep warm. We also checked in on the tadpoles in the pond and noticed that they had grown much bigger but none had legs yet!

After that we headed back to our playground and had a well earned snack in the sunshine!

What a fabulous day!

Chicken Visit!

We have started the summer term by finding out all about chickens! As part of our investigations in poultry we decided to visit the chickens at Mrs Harper’s house and went on an expedition:

We brought them some tasty dandelion leaves in exchange for some eggs, which we found in the hen house!

We found 11 eggs altogether and we are going to use them to make a lovely cake on Friday!

Thank you chickens!

St Patrick’ Day

We have been celebrating St Patricks Day in Reception! We have learned about Ireland, some of the traditions and made our own cards:

We even watched some Irish dancing and had a go at doing some ourselves!

An Alien Adventure!

We having been exploring Outer Space this half term, and what an adventure we’ve been having! We have been dressing up as astronauts and aliens:

We have written fabulous descriptions of aliens in our writing books:

And we have been making lunar landscapes in the small world area:

Watch this space for more galactic goings on over the next couple of weeks…

Chinese New Year Assembly

Here are some pictures of our fabulous Chinese New Year Assembly! Well done everybody, what a brilliant end to this half term!

Making the most of the snow!

We had some fabulous snowy weather earlier this week and decided to get outside and make the most of it! We explored the wildlife garden and marvelled at the frozen pond! We found lots of ice and talked about freezing and melting and we caught snowflakes and examined them closely to make sure that they really were all unique!

We built 3 snowmen and found all sorts of objects to help them look lifelike! Then we watched as the sun came out, warmed them up and slowly melted them….
