Reception litter pick – May 2019
Reception class have taken part in a sponsored litter pick around our school and the local area, through this they have collectively raised £273.80. The children have worked hard all week making sun catchers, recycled bracelets, bookmarks and boxes to sell in their shop as well their own donated toys and books.
Miss Hacking has spoken with the children about what they would like to spend their money on. They have decided to adopt an orangutan and a sea turtle through WWF as well as purchasing a WWF badge for each of the children to wear on their uniform as a reminder of their efforts. The children also decided to plant a tree – they have done this through the woodlands trust.
They have also purchased 3 new sets of litter pickers and some more books about recycling and endangered animals. The money raised by the shop will be used to buy some endangered animal figures for the children to further their learning through play. It has been wonderful to see how enthusiastic the children have been in helping to create a greener future. Well done Reception!
Ducklings – Our new arrivals – May
|The children have had the opportunity to watch the ducklings hatch from eggs and can now enjoy caring for them, watching them grow and learn to swim.|
This half term in Reception we have been learning all about Fairytales. The children have loved creating their own books (some of which are now with Mrs Hurrell in the library).
In learning on our own many of the children have been putting on their own shows acting out fairytales and making tickets for their guests. They’ve also been making story maps on the computer.
In maths, the children have been working on their understanding of addition and subtraction and have enjoyed developing this in learning on our own – especially through subtraction smash.
