  • Wednesday 19 January 2022 Ice Escape! Yesterday, Reception were exploring ice. Something or someone was trapped inside two identical blocks of ice - how could we get them out without hurting them? The children decided to keep one block of ice inside the classroom near a radiator and the other outside on the wall in the sunshine. Which one would melt fastest? The children made predictions and then we observed the ice over the day to see if their predictions were right.
  • Monday 17 January 2022 First Aid Training Today Mr Mustoe came and spent the afternoon teaching us about First Aid and keeping safe. We learnt how to make an emergency call and what to say, how to look for dangers to keep ourselves safe, how to administer CPR and how to bandage. As you'll see from the photos, Reception did a fabulous job!
  • Saturday 15 January 2022 Fun in the Frost Reception have been learning about the seasons and especially winter. We wrapped up warm and went outside on Friday to explore the frosty conditions. We found plenty of ice, wrote our names and numbers in the frost and made a frost track around the field. Next week we'll be investigating ice and what makes it melt.
  • Wednesday 5 January 2022 Seasonal Trees Happy New Year!
  • Wednesday 8 December 2021 Christmas has Arrived in Reception Christmas events are well and truly underway now. The children had a wonderful time shopping for their families at the Christmas Fayre and today made beautiful Christmas crafts to take home. At both events, organised by our brilliant School Association, we were ably assisted by our Year 6 children. Christmas has begun in a magical way (and we have our Nativity Play 'It's a Baby' to look forward to this evening too!
  • Thursday 18 November 2021 Banana Buns Reception made delicious banana buns for our families to eat at the Elmer Parade and Jungle Jamboree. We mashed banana and added other ingredients, mixed it all together and when baked and cooled, decorated the cakes with icing and banana chips. Delicious!! We hope our families enjoyed them.
  • Thursday 11 November 2021 Remembrance Poppies Today we commemorated Remembrance Day. We made these beautiful poppies to help us to remember those who fought for us.
  • Thursday 11 November 2021 Harold's Visit We had a visit from Alex and Harold the Giraffe from Coram Life Education yesterday. We thought about ways to stay healthy, how we can look after our bodies and what to do if we feel sad or angry. Harold sang a song to us to say thank you for our great ideas and our good advice.
  • Friday 5 November 2021 Exploring Autumn Reception have been enjoying the autumnal sunshine. They read 'Leaf Man' by Lois Ehlert before donning wellies and heading into the garden. The children looked for signs that autumn had arrived and collected leaves and other natural products to create their own leaf men or animals.
  • Monday 25 October 2021 Perky Parrots and Cheeky Monkeys Our classroom is looking great!
  • Monday 25 October 2021 Jungle Explorers Now that our jungle is made, it's time to explore! Reception have had great fun exploring the school corridors complete with jeeps, hats, compasses, torches and most importantly their imaginations. Watch out for crocodiles near Mrs Bailey's office and the monkeys outside Year 2!
  • Monday 18 October 2021 Rumble in the Jungle Reception decided it was too far to drive to the jungle and far too dangerous to visit anyway, so we decided to bring the jungle to Northleach. We used a variety of techniques and a range of materials to create a class jungle. We're loving the result.
