Christmas subtraction

This week in reception we have been using the topic of Christmas to practise subtraction. We have used the vocabulary subtract, take away and minus. We have taken baubles from the Christmas tree, Mr Reindeer has eaten carrots to subtract and We have subtracted presents as they fall from Santa’s sleigh. We have also sent the naughty elves to bed! Here are some pictures of the resources that we have used.


A christening in Reception

Sian the vicar from St Peters church came into school this afternoon to christen our baby. The children chose the name of our baby by voting using a voting box. They chose the name Poppy Rose. Sienna and Sam were the mummy and daddy and Lilly, Frankie and George were the godparents. After the christening all of us had cake to celebrate.


Pumpkin soup 

This week we have had the lovely story ‘Pumpkin Soup.’ We have had a fantastic week learning about being friends, acting out the story, making pumpkin faces, playing music like the characters and writing about the story. The children have put all of their work in a special book to show mums and dads. We ended our week by making some soup for our parents.


Armistice Day

The children have been learning about Armistice day and the symbol of the poppy today. They drew a beautiful poppy field in the creative area and collaged their own poppy using different materials. They wrote about the soldiers and the poppies on the writing table. They showed great respect and maturity in honouring the 2 minutes silence.


Dressing up for Halloween 

The children looked ‘spooctacular’ as they came to school dressed in their Halloween costumes. We had a very spooky day playing in our witches potion den role play area and we made monsters with our magic, sparkly play dough. We also mixed potions in the water area as we said rhyming magic words and played with our haunted medieval castle. We be built haunted castles in the construction area and wrote our own spells in the writing area.
