We are halfway through our Nursery Learning Journey and we are so proud of our children. Their confidence has grown and grown as every week goes by.
They have become trainee chefs, making yummy sandwiches for their class friends. Some of our grownups have said that they have been inspired to make them at home, too.
Our Inspiration Day was fabulous. Treasure is our Spring topic and our ever supportive parents and carers assisted the children to arrive dressed as fearsome pirates; they were singing and dancing to sea shanties and creating their own treasure maps. Over the past few weeks, they have created junk modelling pirate ships, complete with a mast and Jolly Roger flag. Giant cardboard boxes were great hiding places and the children made a large pirate ship out of them, to sit inside.
In Letters and Sounds, we have been busy exploring noises at school and home and we are discovering length and matching numerals in Maths.
To celebrate Chinese New Year, the children cut triangle shapes for scales to cover the dragon’s head. After excitedly, listening to the story of the animals’ race, they drew the animals all over a sheet, went outside and hid under the sheet and then walked along doing a dragon dance.
So much learning to write about and so little space. Watch this page for our next adventures!
Our Reception classes are:
- London Class - Mrs Duff
- Edinburgh Class - Mrs Chaplin
Reception have had a great first Spring term. The children all came back refreshed after their Christmas break and engaged in our fun inspiration day all to do with our new topic, Transport. The children enjoyed looking at, washing and even sitting inside the grown-ups cars! We have been busy learning about different modes of transport and reading lots of books e.g. The Naughty Bus, Oi! Get off Our Train and Goodnight Spaceman. The children have been attending their weekly sessions down the Dell and have been climbing, exploring and practicing being imaginative. We have also learned about Chinese New Year and how this is celebrated by some people. We learnt all about the story of the great race and what animals we are! We are looking forward to the next Spring term and cannot quite believe we have just hit the half way mark in our first year at school!

For our Spring 1 topic year 2 found out all about food in our IPC topic “We are what we eat.” We planted our own tomato seeds and went on a trip to Hall place to find out all about how other vegetables are grown. We also explored the greenhouse plants and went on a tree trail to find 8 different types of tree!
Within Science we also found out about different food groups and what is needed to have a balanced diet. We enjoyed tasting different foods from each food group during our inspirational day, though were not keen on the kidney beans!
In English we read the story of “The secret garden” and wrote our own versions using our own character names and ideas. We also wrote letters to Mary’s uncle from the story asking him what life was like in England.
For Maths we used arrays to help us with our times tables and division facts. We also took part in a traffic survey and presented our results in a bar chart, tally chart and pictogram.
