A good start to Summer

What a busy week the children in Reception have had as they returned to school for the Summer term.  We have had lovely warm days and windy wet days.  The children learned about St George and made flags. They are also very much enjoying our transport topic.  This week we were reading stories about trains.  They had a lot of fun building their own trains and some buses too.  Next week we will be reading stories about buses and learning about the different types of vehicle that use our roads.  We will also be talking about our local environment and what we see on the way to school.  The children talked about the beautiful pink trees that are around us at the moment and they painted pictures.  They also planted potatoes and beans in the garden and will do some more planting next week. 

Easter in Reception Class

What a great time the children in Reception have had preparing for Easter.  The final week of term was extremely busy.  The children were writing about the Easter story; they were making Easter cards and crosses; they enjoyed lots of Easter activities in the classroom and also had House Meetings with their friends in Year 1 and Year 2.  We were very happy to welcome our friends into Reception class to make Easter bunny masks.  On Tuesday, the children took part in the Palm Liturgy and sang beautifully.  On Friday, many of the children made Easter bonnets with their families and took part in our Easter Bonnet Parade before school.  Before they went home on Friday, we had an Easter egg hunt.  It has been great fun.

Happy Easter everyone!
