We are all raring to go with phase 2 phonics After introducing the "s" sound the children had a go at writing the letter s. We made a sssssnake pit and tiptoed around our mark making.
What a fantastic start to the school year and everyone has settled well into their new Reception class. Here are a couple of pictures of us learning and we will add some more as time goes on. Thanks, EYFS team.

Today for PE we were practising the long jump, hurdles and javelin throwing.
We were taught a technique for each sporting event and had to try our best to put it into practise.
We may be using these skills on sports day so we will continue to perfect them.
Super effort everyone.
This week we have been celebrating Chinese New Year. Here are a few of our pictures to share. This celebration touches on so many areas of the curriculum it has been a fantastic topic. We have learnt about the traditions and customs in RE, made up our very own dragon dance in PE and also created Chinese lanterns and dragons. We have had a go at Chinese writing, spelt our phonics tricky words using chopsticks and used colourful rice to fill bottles for capacity in maths and talk about our findings. In music we gave sang a special Chinese sont too! Tomorrow we will be cooking and eating noodles. Wow what a busy week Reception, you will be ready for the half term holiday!

This afternoon we expored our school grounds for any signs of Autumn. We also collected our finds and made an Autumn collage out of them. One of the children chose to peel the bark and add it to his collage. What a fantastic technique. Super learning through the seasons Reception.
