This week we practised Road Safety and instead of going out and crossing roads , we made our own. We practised Road Safety and how to cross a road sensibly with an adult. We have also been busy as Artists and Engineers getting our roads and cars ready and then on Friday we were able to all enjoy playing with it ( even the wet weather couldn’t stop us!). 

This week as Authors we changed our story of “ The little red hen” to “ The black and white cow”. She if your child can tell you our Class story with actions. We performed our story to Mrs Randall via zoom and she said we were amazing Authors!

We started Term 2 with a bang! As Artists m we produced beautiful firework pictures which are created when you dip a teabag in paint and then throw it on the paper! We also became Engineers and made rockets out of boxes and tubes.

On Friday 16th October we celebrated World Food Day at Sea Mills . In our EYFS classes, the 2 Year Old room tasted a variety of foods from around the world and even made a traditional Spanish dish of patatas alioli! Muy sabrosa! Reception Class used a map to look at the countries of the world and were fascinated about how far some of the food had travelled. We tasted food from Spain, Turkey and Korea. We were especially impressed that all children tried something new and some of them thought the food was so delicious they wanted to keep eating it until it was all gone!

We have been very busy being Artists, Engineers , Mathematicians , Athletes and Authors. We created a lovely rainbow themed book corner ( which we all voted for) and have been adding decorations to the area over the past few weeks. 

We have completed our first full week together as Reception Class. What a busy week it has been. We have been getting to know each other, learning our friend’s names, working together as a team and playing phonic games. We’ve also enjoyed reading a wide variety of books. On Friday we started to learn some Spanish and listened to “Twinkle Twinkle little star “. We practised our Spanish singing and made biscuits which we drank with delicious hot chocolate . The perfect end to a lovely week . We have been so impressed with how quickly the children have settled into all of the new routines. They are superstars! 

What a brilliant start to Reception Class. The children came into school happily and ready to explore and all enjoyed a school lunch or packed lunch in the dinner hall. We have started to make new friends and explored where things live in the classroom. It has been so lovely to meet all of the children and we are really looking forward to continuing to get to know them over the next few weeks.
