Forest School…

This year Reception 3 have enjoyed our regular visits to the woods. This week was our last visit, although the children will be lucky enough to go with Miss Gunn in September. 

We took a photograph of our whole class back in September and again today. We compared the two photographs and can’t believe how much we have changed!

Looking back….looking forwards…

As we come to the end of another successful year, this morning we have looked back at the fun things we have done this year. We have also looked forward to the things we are excited about.  

We wrote our memories on to jigsaw pieces, because we fit together like a jigsaw!

Pie Face

Yesterday Leo said “I’d love to play Pie Face with you Mrs Ogden”

“I’ve never played that game, bring it in tomorrow” replied Mrs Ogden 

This morning Leo brought the game to school, set it up and the fun began! We took it in turns to play and talked about the numbers we were spinning….and whether they were higher or lower than the last. Leo nearly fell off his chair laughing when Mrs Ogden was hit in the face. The laughter from my classroom this afternoon was simply priceless

Whose Smile?

In Reception 3 we have a new class book….Whose Smile? This book creates amazing conversations as some of the smiles are so gorgeous it’s hard to know who they belong to! Have a look through and see if you can see any you recognise…

Thank you to Leo’s Nana

Having read the letter from Leo’s Nana, Poppy decided to write a reply. Poppy worked independently and said “make sure you post it”

A letter from Ireland

Following on from our exciting ‘balloon’ adventure, we received a letter from Ireland from Leo’s Nana. We read the letter in class, and the children were delighted the balloon had traveled so far.

Welcome to our newly opened Bug Hotel!!

Several children went to Miss Fletcher’s car yesterday to help her bring in some logs from her garden. We lifted the heavy logs onto the cart and took them to our garden .We put all the logs in a special area and then today we went to the woods and brought back some bugs to stay in our lovely bug hotel!! We hope the snails,wood lice, worms and slugs enjoy their stay in our deluxe hotel!!
