Welcome to the Reception Class web page.
Come and have a look at all the exciting things we are doing in the Reception Class!
We have been learning about foods that are good for us. We noticed that foods come in lots of different colours. We made a healthy food rainbow display.
Red food is good for the heart.
Tomatoes, strawberries and cherries.
Orange food is good for our eyes.
Oranges, peaches and apricots.
Yellow food is good for our skin.
Bananas, lemons and sweetcorn.
Green food is good for our whole body.
Grapes, spinach and peppers.
Blue and purple foods are good for the brain.
Blueberries, blackberries and plums.
We made some fruit kebabs. We used grapes, oranges, strawberries and bananas. We had to be so careful cutting up the fruit. We then threaded the fruits onto a skewer and we tasted them. We thought about words to describe the fruits.
Juicy Tasty Wet Squashy Sweet Healthy
Healthy Lunch Boxes.
We made some healthy lunch boxes. We put in foods such as sandwiches, yogurt, fruit, muesli bars, cheese, and water or milk shakes to drink.
We did not put in fizzy drinks with lots of sugar in. We did not put in cakes and sweets.
Have a look at our lunch boxes.
What would you put in yours?
We have been learning about what happens when we are asleep. We know lots. of animals are awake at night time. Bats, foxes, owls, hedgehogs, mice, and badgers. These animals are nocturnal.
Some have big eyes to help them see in the dark.
Some have a good sense of smell to help them find their food.
Some have big ears to help them hear very quiet sounds.
We made a display for the hall.
We took part in a workshop called Go-Bike-Go. Some Mums, Dads and Grandparents came to help us. We played some games at first to help us prepare to ride the bikes. They were to develop some core skills such as balance, grip, step and looking. Then we put on the cycle helmets and got on the bikes. We learned to scoot, stride and glide. We found out how to speed up and slow down, and how to travel in different directions. We also found out how to safely get on and off our bikes.
We went down to the Marina in Mirfield where we saw Santa arrive on a barge. We all got to talk to him and tell him what we wanted for Christmas. He gave us a present which we opened when we got back to school. We went into the cafe and had a drink and a snack. We coloured pictures and made our own badges.
