This week we had an ‘egg-tra’ special delivery to our classroom… Reception’s very own hen! After an exciting morning of meeting the hen and finding out more information on how to look after her. We each wrote a name that we would like her to be called and then one name was fairly pulled out of a hat. The winning name was Penny! Make sure you look our for when you past the coop, she is wearing a pale pink band on her leg.
In the next few weeks Penny will be inspiring us with our enterprise. We will be selling our creations at the end of the day on Friday 20th May.
Thank you very much to everyone that attended our Christmas sing-a-long yesterday. We thought that the children sang beautifully and they all should be very proud of their achievement.
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year,
The Early Years Team
We are really proud of how all the children are settling into Reception. The children are really enjoying discovery time and exploring the activities both inside and outside of the classroom. The children have picked their own play dough pot and we have started dough disco, which is lots of fun! We are very impressed with how well the children are carrying their food trays in the dinner hall and remembering to say please and thank you.
This week we have been learning all about ourselves and how to describe what we look like to a friend. We have been practising drawing a picture of our face.
We hope that you all have had a lovely and relaxing half term. We have heard lots of interesting and exciting stories from the children about the things that they have been up to over the holidays.
We would like to take the time now to say how proud we were of all the children in our recent assembly all about minibeasts. It was lovely to see them share all they have been learning about with such confidence and enthusiasm.
Thank you very much for your kind donations that helped the Early Years Team to raise £207 for the British Red Cross.
