Our Last Week in Reception!

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

The children in Reception have had a very exciting last week full of fun things!

On Monday we had our trip to the beach.

 

On Tuesday our grown ups came in to school for our Foundation graduation- we really enjoyed singing for our grown ups, sharing our delicious biscuits and looking through our learning journey folders and writing books. Some of the children have been part of the Foundation Unit for well over 2 years, so moving into year 1 will be a big change- but one that all of the children seem to be looking forward to.

On Wednesday we were invited to watch the Year 6 leaver’s assembly, which was brilliant, and we all really enjoyed it.

 

On Thursday we had our ‘Golden Ticket’ treats! We were rewarded for good behaviour throughout the year with different treats- extra playtime, ice lollies and the fantastic ‘Water-wipe Out’ challenge! So much fun and laughter!

 

With just one last day to go, we wish everyone a very safe and very happy summer break!

See you all in September!

Reception's Trip to the Beach!

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Today was a very exciting day for the children in Reception! Our trip on the

Babbacombe Cliff Railway and Beach School activities on Oddicombe beach.

We all piled on to the school minibus, ready for our journey to Babbacombe.

When we arrived we were keen to get onto our Cliff Railway Carriage, and what a view we had as we travelled down!

 

When we got to the beach we started our first activity- a scavenger hunt!

 

We had a pebble-stacking competition. Mrs Smart was the winner with 10 pebbles!

 

Lunch Time!

 

We made beach art using things we found on the beach.

 

It was so hot, we sat in the shade and had a cool drink of water.

 

Miss Schofield told us an exciting story about pirates, and we hunted in the sand for the treasure they had lost at the beach.

 

After our treasure hunt it was time to leave, so we headed back to the Cliff Railway.

 

What a fantastic day we have had!

Activities Week Forest School Session!

Friday, July 14th, 2017

As part of their activities week the children were invited to take part in a Forest School session in our woodland area on Thursday afternoon. We had lunch together around the fire pit, with jacket potatoes and baked beans cooked on the fire. During the afternoon the children were free to explore the site, or could choose to take part in activities such as a scavenger hunt, journey sticks, Hapa Zome (Japanese art using leaves and hammers), fairy house building, whittling and den building. The children enjoyed toasting marshmallows to make smores and trying hot chocolate that had been heated using the Kelly Kettle.

 

Forest School Club- End of Term Party!

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Our three Forest School clubs were very excited to join together this week for a big end of term party in our woodland area! The children enjoyed smores, hot chocolate and cakes, as well as lots of fun playing in the river and trees. A huge thank you to the parents and staff who provided these delicious treats. We hope everyone has enjoyed Forest School this year, and look forward to seeing some of you back again next term.
