Welcome to Reception.
Miss Sykes, Miss Eagle and Mrs Greaves
This is our class page. We hope you have lots of fun looking at our fantastic learning we are always so busy!
The children have all settled well into Reception and have enjoyed exploring the different learning areas. We have a had a busy few weeks getting to know the children and the children have enjoyed making new friends.
Our topic this half-term is 'Ourselves'. As part of this topic we are discussing families and it would be nice if you could send in a family picture for the children to share and to add to our class display.
As part of our Autumn 2 topic, the children have been discussing important people. They enjoyed dressing up and talking about how people in the community help us.
The children enjoyed leaning about Remembrance Day and we observed two minutes silence to remember all the people who have died in conflict. They also made and painted poppies in the creative area.
We visited Walkden Library where the children had a wonderful time looking at all the different books. They especially enjoyed reading books about People Who Help Us. Some of the children were shown how to use the self service machine to check out books. All the children have been given forms to complete to join the library and we would encourage you to do so to allow your children to enjoy the wonderful books they have in the library.
Pets at Home visit
The children enjoyed our visit to Pets at Home. They met Luna the rabbit and Sam the ferret and learned about how to care for them. They loved stroking the animals and loved the tricks that Sam could do. The children were very well behaved and were very sensible when walking to and from the store. Well done Reception!
To enhance our Animal Topic we took the children to Blackpool Zoo to see different animals from around the world. They really enjoyed seeing the animals up close and had the opportunity to handle reptiles and insects and learned some interesting facts. We had a lovely day and the children all had an ice-cream to cool down as it was a lovely sunny day.
We were all exhausted by the time we got on the coach and so were the children!
