Reception Week Beginning 6.3.23

This week, Reception have been learning about how plants grow and what they need to be healthy and strong. The children planted some bulbs with the help of Mrs Moccia and listened to lots of different stories about beanstalks- Jim and the Beanstalk by Raymond Briggs, Shhhh! by Sally Grindley, Jasper’s Beanstalk by Nick Butterworth and of course lots of different versions of Jack and the Beanstalk.

The children’s favourite by far was the story Shhhhh! This award winning story completely captured Reception’s imagination and they had lots of fun imagining what would happen if the giant climbed out of the book and entered Pope Paul!!

In RE, Reception have been learning about Palm Sunday. They listened to the story read from the class bible, looked at paintings and then watched film clips to enrich their understanding of the story. Reception also used their phonics to write about the story, acted it out as a class, using props they had made and retold the story through the use of small world and building bricks.

To mark the start of Science Week, Reception class participated in a fun, interactive workshop, where they got to make their own sweets!! They then joined the rest of the school for a thrilling rocket launch!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,

The Reception Team
