We have been exploring shapes this week. We started on Monday with a fantastic Family Maths morning. It was wonderful to have so many families join us.
We went for a walk and looked at the trees around school. There are so many different varieties. We discovered fruit trees (apples and pears), seeds and berries.
We celebrated harvest with a special assembly. Thank you to everyone who donated food to the Wellington Kip Project.
All the Reception children have received a special book bag gift. We hope you enjoy sharing the stories.
This week we revisited the apple tree at Squirrel School. The children had lots of stories to tell. Everyone was sorry about the tree falling over. Umaima gave it a heart, to send her love. Lots of children gave the tree a hug. We also collected berries, flowers, grass and feathers to make medicine for the tree. Isaac said we needed to rub it on the trunk to make it feel better.
We found that trees are good for climbing and great hiding places too!
First Days In School
The children have quickly settled into school. It has been lovely to see so many new friendships blossoming!
We went over to Squirrel School to see if the apples were ready to pick. We were amazed. The tree was so full of apples it had fallen over! We crawled along the trunk, twisted the apples from the branches. We took them back to school, drew and painted them. We also made delicious apple crumbles. We made bird feeders by pushing seeds into the apples. We used a hand drill to make a hole through the middle and hung them on the trees.
Well done to Maddie and Nadia, our first Golden Leafers this year. They have been asking questions and showing a real 'can do' attitude towards their learning.
We have had our first experience of P.E, exploring balls, hoops, climbing frame and running activities.
Overall School: 96.6% - Every day counts!
