Thank you for visiting our class page. Can you believe we are in the summer term already? We have had a very fun but busy half term so far. We are coming to the end of our ‘Deep in the Jungle’ topic where we have learnt a lot about jungles and rainforests. We have also learnt to tell the time, double and halve numbers and count to 100.
Our last topic this academic year is ‘Down by the sea’. We have lots of exciting books to read to including The Snail and the Whale, Tiddler, Sharing a Shell and The Rainbow Fish.
PE will remain on a Wednesday. We have a few exciting weeks ahead while we prepare for sports day.

Fruits of the Holy Spirit
Two of our lovely children were nominated by their peers to receive a sticker for showing the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.
World Book Day
We all celebrated World Book day by getting dressed us as our favourite book character. All the children looked wonderful and had made a great effort on their costumes. We wrote a book review for our favourite book and shared our favourite books.
We read the story of Handa’s surprise. We investigated the different fruits in the story by looking at them with magnifying glasses and doing a taste test. We made a bar chart to show our favourite fruits. Avocado was not a popular fruit!
We love our Expedition days at Christ the King. We enjoy worshipping Jesus though song and dance. We are already looking forward to another visit next half term.
Chinese New Year
Reception class celebrated Chinese New Year with a week of fun activities. We set up a Chinese restaurant, made our own stir-fry and learnt about Chinese cultures. We enjoyed learning about how the Chinese Zodiac got its name.
In Godly Play this term we learnt about Baptism
This half term we had a Godly Play lesson with Mrs Boyes about Baptism. She explained how a new baby is Baptised and welcomed into the family of God. We each lit a candle to remember our own Baptism and told each other our special name.
We loved having a visit from an exciting storyteller
We had a visit from a storyteller and he told us the story of The Gingerbread Man. Afterwards we had a go at writing the story ourselves. Mrs Heerin was so impressed with our work. Some of our work was published onto Pobble.
Our Friend Oslo
Before Christmas we went to visit a Reindeer. His name was Oslo. We each got to hold him and have our picture taken with him. He was so soft and friendly. It really got us in the Christmas spirit.
Stay and Pray Advent
Before Christmas we invited our Parents into school to join us in a stay and pray session. We led our liturgy ourselves. It was a beautiful collective worship and our Parents enjoyed taking part. We look forward to inviting parents in again soon.
