Afternoon tea with the queen!

The children were very excited today to have afternoon tea with the queen. They greeted her politely and sat down to have a cup of tea (decaf of course) and a jam scone with her majesty. They told her all about Nicol mere school and asked questions about life at Buckingham palace. They also made sure that they stuck out their pinky finger as they sipped their tea!


Pirate day

The children have had lots of fun for pirate day. They took part in pirate P.E with Mr Rothwell and made lots of pirate accessories in the creative area. They used large soft shapes to build their own pirate ship and then used props to role play. After learning all about pirate flags the children designed their own pirate symbol.


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 soupĀ 

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.
