A few from Sport's day! We loved taking part in the different races.
As part of our topic in Reception this term (Summer 2017) we have been learning about different kinds of animals and their habitats. A trip to Tweddle Farm really helped! We had lots of fun despite getting very very wet!! We enjoyed feeding the baby animals and a tractor ride around the farm, and most importantly.... eating our packed lunches!
We celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite characters from stories or as a nursery rhyme. We loved baking cakes for Camila the cupcake fairy and making wands.

What an exciting day... On Tuesday 20th December, we visited 'virtual' Lapland, we had so much fun! We used our passports to board the aeroplane, it took us to Lapland and we got to explore the surroundings, from making pictures for Santa, to finding presents in the snow, to listening to different noises using lights.

We loved our Christmas dinner!
On Sunday 27th November, the children in Reception were welcomed to the church by Father Jim. We sang lots of songs and painted different pictures of people who have welcomed us into school and church. It was a special celebration as we also celebrated the first Sunday of Advent.
Children in Need 2016
The boys and girls dressed in spots or in their own clothes to raise money. We had lots of dun decorating our own biscuits, making them colourful and spotty! We loved painting Pudsey ears and even moving Pudsey's!

On Tuesday 8th November, we had a very special visitor. His name is Simon Bartram, he has a very interesting job - an author! We loved listening to one of his stories and some of us even got our books signed by him!

On Tuesday 18th October, we visited Rossmere Forest School. We listened to a Meg and Mog story and enjoyed taking part in lots of different activities - making magic wands, looking for different characters and objects from the story and making a potion!
One of our favourite activities was toasting marshmallows on the fire - delicious!

Reception visited Preston Park. We looked at different toys - old and new. We enjoyed looking around the museum and some children were very inquisitive looking at the artefacts! We even managed to visit the climbing frame! Our favourite part was visiting the sweet shop.
