06/07/18 - Our Reception Fun Day!
We has the most wonderful time enjoying the visit from Wellgate farm, our 'beach' experience and having the opportunity to play a range of games on the field. We met a range of different animals and found out about how to care for them. We also had the chance to feed the goats (who were constantly hungry!) and to hold the chickens, guinea pigs and rabbits! We had the perfect summers day for our beach experience, having the opportunity to cool down in the paddling pool was just great! After games on the field and a lovely picnic lunch we topped off the day with some delicious ice cream! Here are just some of the many photos of the day.
21/06/18 - Reception Sports Day
Thank you to everyone who came along to support us and to participate in our Reception sports day. We all had a great time attempting all the different races and events and it was lovely to see how well we all worked together in our teams! Thank you especially to the brave adults who took part in the races, the children absolutely loved seeing their special visitors getting involved.
14/06/18 - Mini beast storytelling with Julie
Our topic this half term is Mini beasts and we had so much fun creating a mini beast story with Julie from the Freshwater Theatre company. We searched for mini beasts on a hill, in a garden, at the beach and in a cave and we found out lots of new information about mini beasts! We even made a wonderful mini beast garden for Mrs Lewis! Over the next week we will be recalling the story we created and writing a recount of what we did in class, along with creating our own mini beast stories.
21/05/18 - We have been learning about healthy eating in the Wrens
We really enjoyed our session with Sharon Adkins and the juice bike! We learnt lots about healthy eating and making healthy choices in our diet. Sharon showed us how much sugar is in some of the food we eat every day such as yoghurts and we were shocked! Miss Keeley had to pedal really quickly on the juice bike which helps to mix and create smoothies with lots of lovely fresh fruit. We then had the opportunity to taste the smoothie and we all agreed it tasted delicious!
