This morning Early Years and KS1 had a very exciting assembly with some beautiful owls. They learnt facts about them, watched them fly and were even able to hold one.
This week Reception have been learning about how to have a healthy body and a healthy mind. For a healthy body they have been writing shopping lists, roleplaying in a supermarket, printing with vegetables and discussing their favourite fruit and vegetables. To think about their healthy minds the class talked more about feelings using the red hat and we shared ideas on what we could do if we feel angry, sad or worried. They also had the opportunity to learn a bit of Yoga in PE and ended the week planting bulbs in the Reception outdoor area.
Yesterday morning Reception had a lovely trip to Rickmansworth Library. We had an adventurous journey on the bus and the children were very excited to see a Fire Engine, Ambulance, Police car, Post Van and a Dustcart which all linked in beautifully with this half terms topic of ‘People Who Help Us’. At the Library we were very privileged to have it all to ourselves. There the children had the opportunity to: learn more about what a Librarian does, go on a tour of the Library, read books independently and experience a session with singing and were read a wonderful story. (Which they then all received a copy of to take home.)
Reception had a lovely afternoon exploring the grounds of the school during their Welly Walk session. One group even conquered the style with support and encouragement from the rest of their group.
