Reception visit the Fire Station

Reception have had a wonderful visit to Rickmansworth Fire Station today.  We travelled to the Fire Station by bus.  As we left the bus stop and walked to the Fire Station, a member of the public commented on the excellent behaviour of the children and how they were a credit to the school.  They certainly are and a credit to their parents too!

The children were able to see the equipment on the fire engine, sit in the fire engine and each child had a turn at squirting the hose.

Mrs Scourfield and Miss Heydarzadeh had been sponsored to wear their Children in Need Onezies to the Fire Station and raised £30 for Children in Need.

Reception visit Rickmansworth Library

We set off in the beautiful, autumn sunshine to visit Rickmansworth Library.  We travelled on the bus and walked to the library where we were met by the helpful library staff.  We enjoyed having stories read to us, singing, colouring and choosing books to look at.  Someone noticed that a book in the library was the same as one we have at school. At the end of the morning we were all given a book to take home and keep. The library staff commented on how well the children listened and how well behaved they were.  We are very proud of them and we are sure you are too.

Outside Learning in Reception

Today we did our phonics learning outside.  Children took it in turns to hold sounds and when the adult said a sound we ran to the sound. Then we used our chalk and our letter formation rhymes to write the sounds on the ground.

Later in the morning we found a caterpillar in the garden and this afternoon a total of 5 caterpillars were found. The children took great care holding the caterpillars so that they didn’t squash them and found leaves for the caterpillars to eat. We also looked at The Very Hungry Caterpillar story to see if the caterpillar we found was like the one in the book.

Visitors in Reception

Today we had the pleasure of having 4 children from Year 4 sharing in our learning.  The Year 4 children helped us with our phonics and our learning outside.  This afternoon they helped Reception children create a ‘friend den’ outside. Then they played hangman with the children using sounds that they had learnt in phonics.  It was a delight to have them with us today and they are welcome to return!
