Welcome to Reception!
Our topic this term is
The great outdoors!
We can be 'nature detectives' and explore our school grounds for plants and animals.
We shall observe the beauty of nature too when we visit Harlow Carr Gardens.
We had an amazing time at Harlow Carr Gardens.
It was great fun exploring the grounds looking at all the lovely flowers and trees.
We were so excited when we discovered a tree house in the woods.
After lunch Louise took us on an adventure trail with Dylan the dragon. We discovered that the houses belonging to the elves and fairies had been blown away, so we all set to work making them new homes. We searched for twigs, leaves and stones and other natural objects to build with. It was non-stop excitement.
And before you ask we didn't get to see the elves and fairies. They are very shy you know.

A big thank you to Henry's mum for coming in to Reception class to talk about her job as a dentist and how we can keep our teeth clean and healthy. She gave us some top tips:
* We should brush our teeth for 2 minutes, twice a day.
* Our mums and dads should still help us clean our teeth, to make sure our teeth get a thorough cleaning.
* Water is good for us! Inbetween meals we should drink water.
* Fizzy drinks are not good for our teeth. They are sweet and sugary.
* If we want a healthy snack then cheese, nuts and bread sticks are good for us. We should only have sweets and raisins as a treat.

Our topic focus this half term is
Favourite Stories and Rhymes
Parents, please can you help your child select a book from home that they can bring
to school to write as a book review.
We hope you have all had a restful but fun Easter break. We are looking forward to the term ahead, especially now that Summer is nearly here.
For those really sunny days we ask that you provide a sun hat for your child and that they come to school with sun lotion already applied.
Water will be available, as always, throughout the day.
Thank you very much to those parents who have contributed to our baking fund. A donation of £6 for the year is appreciated and should cover our costs.
May we remind you that parents can join us for ‘stay and play’ first thing on Tuesday mornings, until 9.30 am.
Also remember that we are here to talk, most days after school, should there be anything you want to discuss.
Thank you for your continued support, the Reception team.
Our topic focus in Spring 1 was

Feel proud Reception for reaching your target . . .
to keep your classroom clean and tidy.
The children in Reception class have got off to a great start.
During the first few weeks we will be concentrating on getting to know one another and familiarising ourselves with the new routines. To help with this our main topic this half term will be ‘Ourselves’ and will include aspects relating to our families and friends, the body and how it works, and our favourite things.
