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…

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!!

What’s in the box?


A box arrived during one of our literacy lessons. We all predicted what might be in the box and did some independent writing. On the Friday we opened the box and 3 helium balloons popped up! We decided to release the balloons and started to talk about how far they might travel. We looked at a map of the United Kingdom and talked about the places some of the children in our class have visited. London was popular! 

Leo looked across the water to Ireland and did some independent writing predicting the balloon might travel across the Irish Sea to his grandparents house…
…You won’t believe it but a couple of weeks later we got a photograph from Leo’s Grandad George  to say the balloon had landed in a tree in their garden. Leo could not believe his eyes!
