Everything has been going so fast! It’s the last week of the Autumn term and looking back on our Blog, we can see how busy we have all been!

This week we got the privilege of seeing the Key-Stage 2 production which we really enjoyed!

This week we have been working hard as Santa’s little helpers, designing, wrapping and fixing the presents for Christmas day!
We have even been giving gifts to each other and  talking about how gifts make us feel when we give and receive them.

Here we are sporting our PE kits and headbands that we made especially for our class production. We were so proud to sing to our parents on the big stage!

This week we have also been exploring ice. We have been talking about how ice freezes, and why it melts. We have been using our senses to describe how it feels and talking about the ice might be melting when we hold it in our hands.

Why do you think ice melts when you hold it?

What is ice made from?

This week we have also been creating a variety of different decorations, from snow-cone men, to glittery Christmas trees! We have even been making bead decorations that look like candy canes!

We have also spent a lot of time this week making and writing out Christmas cards for our family and friends. Here a few of the designs we have made.

Have you been given any Christmas cards? Who were they from?

We hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Reception have been working hard this week to learn about capacity. we have been comparing the sixes of different containers and talking about whether we think they are full, nearly full, half full, half empty, nearly empty or empty.

We have also been writing on post-its to label these containers.

Can you see our fantastic writing?

We have also been exploring capacity using rice and different sized containers. We have enjoyed filling the containers and using these to show our teachers how well we understand the language of capacity.

This week we have also been trying our hands at cracking the codes to untangle the chain! It’s been tricky, but we have used our number knowledge to match the correct key to the lock.

Did you match any of the keys?

We also had an impromptu game of buses! We had a fantastic time and all played really well together. Some of us were drivers, some of us were ticket collectors and some of us were conductors! We went to the beach and saw lots of different things on the way! We really enjoyed ourselves!

Can you spot the driver?

We also finished our baubles for the Christmas bazaar. However, there is one more step to go! We think you’re going to love the final result!

Check out some of the amazing artwork we have produced this week! (and it’s only Wednesday!) We are so proud with our work and love to make things for our friends. We have even been trying to make paper chains this week to decorate the classroom!

We have been continuing to practice our songs for the Christmas production and our ‘Star song’ really is beautiful. We have actions for the song and we are going to have special head bands for the performance! We don;t want to give too much away…for now.

End of Term Fun in Reception!

RR have explored what was hidden inside a pumpkin. We found seeds and lots of squishy flesh. We made predictions about what would happen to it if we left it alone for a week and observed the changes over time! It didn’t look very nice after a week!

We pulled some funny faces using some magnifying glasses!

And drew some really big shapes using chalk and water in the outside area.
