Reception- Pancakes!

Posted: 2 March 2020

The children in Reception really enjoyed sharing Pancake Day celebrations on Shrove Tuesday!

We talked about why people celebrate Shrove Tuesday by eating pancakes. We all thought about what we most enjoy eating on top of our pancake. We worked together to find out what ingredients we needed to mix up some pancake batter, and prepared everything we needed. When our batter was ready, we went into the kitchen in groups to fry up some pancakes. We also had a go at flipping some pancakes in pans. Some of us were very good at it!

When our pancakes were cooked, we could choose to sprinkle on some sugar, squeeze on some lemon juice and pop on some raisins. We all enjoyed trying the pancakes. We thought they were ‘delicious’, ‘tasty’, ‘bitter lemon’, ‘sour’, ‘sweet’ and ‘super good’!


When we had all finished eating, someone even offered to help wash up!


We also had lots of pancake-themed activities in the foundation unit to enjoy, including counting games, colouring, pancake playdough, pancake races in the garden and pancake role-play!

What a lovely way to enjoy Pancake Day!



Reception- End of Term Lego Party!

Posted: 2 March 2020

The children in Reception worked very hard last half term to get lots of marbles in the happy jar, and smiley faces on their tickets, by always being in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing!

They did so well that Miss Schofield, Miss Cross and Miss Burke decided they should have a special treat on the last day of term. The children chose to have a Lego party! They enjoyed a fun morning playing with Lego, watching a Lego movie and colouring Lego pictures!

Well done to all of the children in Reception who worked hard to earn this special reward!



Reception- Our first trip to Forest School!

Posted: 21 January 2020

Today the Reception children headed off for their first Forest School session! They were shocked to find a magical gate in the fence that took us through to a new, secret land! We explored this new environment and hunted for bears! The children were surprised to learn that they are allowed to climb trees and play in the river! It was very exciting and we are all looking forward to getting back out into the Forest School area next week!


Please make sure your child has a pair of leggings and wellies in school ready for next week- we will keep these in school and wash them each week ready for our next session!
