For our first week back, Reception learnt all about New Year’s. Over the week we discussed the traditions people take part in when celebrating the New Year such as counting down to 10 and making resolutions. The children also created beautiful firework posers using oil pastels, which they then enjoyed smudging to blend different colours.

15th January- Penguins

After a very frosty week the class decided to learn all about animals that live in cold places. We read the book “Cuddly Dudley” by Alborough Jez, which started an important discussion about personal space and boundaries. Over the week the class enjoyed making penguins out of potatoes, saving saved arctic animals from the ice, labelling penguins and even feed a hungry penguin different graphemes.
