Recent Learning

For their spring time learning, Reception explored our outdoor areas and visited the allotment:

Reception had a fab time completing activities based on the book Bringing Down The Moon. Then, they enjoyed some lovely treats:

Reception created a Jurassic landscape and even erupted a paper mache volcano!

Reception's learning has centred on Hansel and Gretel. Our students had a lovely time exploring the woods, making little gingerbread houses and learning a song!

Reception made fireworks paintings for Bonfire Night and, with Diwali being the festival of lights, they created colourful Rangoli patterns and diva lamps. To top it all off, Reception also enjoyed some chocolate-dipped apples with sprinkles!

Reception's learning has also centred on Little Red Riding Hood. They baked cookies for grandma, re-enacted the story and even learnt a song! Well done!
