What do Astronauts Eat in Space?

Happy Diwali!

What a fantastic day we had! We have learned about the meaning of ‘diwali’ and how it is the festival of light. Children have learned about the story ‘Rama and Sita’. Children came into school wearing bright coloured clothing in order to celebrate.


We practised and performed a Bollywood dance in the hall.

We made some diva lamps and painted them in bright colours.

We also tasted some authentic Indian sweets. They were very sweet and sticky.

Our Headteacher 

Mrs Wightman came into our classroom  to discuss her  role as a Headteacher. The children thought of some great questions to ask in order to find out answers. Children asked: ‘What classrooms have you worked in?’  ‘What do you do?’ ‘Is your job fun?’

Who works in the church?

Reverend Pete came to visit Reception today. Lots of children have met him already and they were keen to share their experiences from church. Pete shown the children what he wears during his service. The children had the opportunity to try on a stole too. We learned that the stoles are different colours and each colour matches a Christian season

Police Officer

Today we met a Police Officer who spoke to the children about his uniform and explained what his job entailed. Children got the opportunity to try police helmets on too.


Children have had another visitor today. A doctor came to visit and talked to children about their job. Children learned about keeping healthy. They also got to use some equipment too.

Careers Day

Today we asked the question ‘ What do I want to be when I grow up?’ Children had the opportunity to express their future aspirations.

We also had a visitor whom shared her role working as a vet. She brought along a friendly visitor too. The children found out what equipment a vet may use including a dressing, stethoscope,otoscope and eye drops.

Busy Busy Reception!

Reception have had a fun and busy week this week. Firstly, in maths reception have been learning to count objects without moving them and match the correct numeral to an amount. Some children have also ordered numbers and recorded them too.

Family Portraits

In literacy children have been learning how to label members of their families. We have also been representing our family members using a range of materials to represent faces. Children selected their own materials such as chickpeas, wool, buttons and pasta.


Roald Dahl Day


Children had the opportunity to dress up as a character from the infamous Roald Dahl. We discussed characters from stories and children were keen to discuss their favourite ones.

Our Learning

We have had a fantastic first week in Reception! The children have enjoyed exploring lots of areas of learning and have confidently participated in a range of fun activities. Children have all shown a  positive attitude towards their new class. Here is a glimpse of the children’s learning during our first two weeks,
