This term we are learning about – Term 2 Let’s Celebrate
Once Upon a Time…Reception WOW day
Once upon a time in Reception we had a fantastic WOW day! On Tuesday this week the children came to school dressed as storybook characters. We had a busy and fun-filled day based on the traditional tale “The Ginger-bread Man”.
We made and decorated real gingerbread biscuits, played with gingerbread playdough and acted out the story with masks.
Outside, each team completed a challenge to find the gingerbread men who were hiding in the forest and we also did some building in our Three Little Pigs Construction Site.
Let’s Celebrate! Reception WOW day
We had a fun and exciting day on Wednesday as the children came to school dressed in their party clothes ready to learn about Diwali.
In the morning the children were learning about traditions of Diwali, the festival of light. The children drew mehndi patterns on hands, learnt the story of Rama and Sita and made diva lamps with clay.
For the afternoon, we looked at the Jewish festival Hanukkah. Each of the children made a menorah. We ended the day with fun party dancing and games.
Superhero WOW Day
On Tuesday, Hedgehog and Squirrel classes enjoyed their very first WOW Day. The children came to school dressed as Superheroes or Heroes of the community and they all looked brilliant!
We want to say a super thank you to all of the visitors who made our Superhero topic come to life: Jane who came in to talk about being a nurse, Heather who came in with her Ambulance and the RNLI who did a fantastic puppet show! We are still waiting for visits from the vet and the police.
