Our Learning 

Asteroid Rock Cakes

This week we have been learning all about instructions. Firstly, we have been following and giving instructions. Today we have been reading and ordering instructions to help us to make rock cakes. 

Later this week, the children will be writing their own instructions.  

Children in need

The children have enjoyed a fun day of activities and  looked  amazing in their outfits .They also had a big surprise when Pudsey  Bear  visited them in the hall.Thank you to everyone  for your kind donations .

What would I like to be when I grow up?

Today the children have dressed up in uniforms of what they would like to be when they grow up. They enjoyed sharing what job they would like to do with the other children and teachers.

Later we had a visit from the police. The children were very excited to learn about what a police officer does and even got to sit in a police car!


We have had a very exciting start to our last week of half term! We kicked off Careers week with three visitors to our class. The children have learned about what it would be like to be a doctor, a vicar and a vet. They got to handle some of the equipment that they would need to do those jobs and even had the chance to practise being a vet by looking after Dougal the dog! The children listened beautifully to all of our visitors and asked lots of interesting questions.

Here are some of the things that they got up to…

Where do I live?

The children have enjoyed discussing our local area and learning about different homes and houses we all live in. This afternoon they were enthusiastic about their junk modelling and construction of the different buildings in our vicinity.

 All About Me

The children have settled in to school life very well. They have started to learn new sounds, explore shapes and have been drawing pictures of themselves. This week the children are thinking about the question ‘What do I look like?’ They have labelled pictures of themselves and have been listening carefully to sounds that they can hear in the words. We have also had great fun exploring movement in PE.

All the children have had an exciting first week in Reception! The children have enjoyed exploring the different areas of the classroom and have been busy making new friends. We are looking forward to the adventures that we will have together during the year. Here are a few photographs to show what they have been doing so far…
