This afternoon the children got the chance to see real bicycles that Paralympic cyclist use. We looked at how the bikes are adapted for the athletes to use effectively. We found out which bike was for the road and which was used on the valadium cycle track.

Engineer

Mr Oyedokun visited our class today and taught us about what engineers do. We learnt about different types of engineers and that engineers fix, create, design and make.

Vicar

The children were amazed to see the vicar wearing his cassock and surplice. We learnt what the different colour stoles represent and how the pictures on the stole link to Jesus.

 

Vet

Mrs Atkinson came to visit Reception with Dougal the dog. Dougal was very well behaved and the children were delighted to learn about the role of a vet. We practised bandaging a poorly animal’s leg and listened to the heartbeat using a stethoscope.

PE

In PE Reception are learning to find a space and how to roll and stop a ball working with a partner. The children have attempted to undress and dress themselves independently in order to get ready for PE. They did a great job! Please continue to encourage your child to dress themselves for school.

Dance

This afternoon the children did some Spanish dancing! They listened carefully to instructions and followed different actions.
