Reception children enjoyed using the coffee machine in the role play area today. Sandwiches were also available for sale and a list of fillings was written on the chalk board.
This morning Nursery and Reception had a busy morning learning in the lovely sunshine. Whittling sticks, building, cooking in the mud kitchen, water exploration and planting bulbs. Can’t wait to do it all again tomorrow!
Today all the children had a session in our outdoor forest classroom. They worked collaboratively on a range of challenges. Our THRIVE approach underpins all that we do in forest school. What a wonderful day of learning.
This morning, Reception and Nursery classes learnt all about Chanukah from our Chair of Governors, Mrs Maykels. We were told the story of Chanukah and why a candle on a Menorah is lit each night for 8 days. The children learnt a song too, and have spent the morning singing it and drawing pictures of their own Menorah’s.
Reception learning about Diwali. Today, Mrs Majithia came in to tell us about how she celebrates Diwali and answer our questions. We learnt that one of the preparations is to wash the doorstep. After Mrs Majithia had gone, the children decided to clean our home corner and wash our doorstep too!
In Reception today, we built a camp fire and toasted crumpets on it. The children made sure they kept themselves safe by standing with their backs against the fence until it was their turn to toast their crumpets. Children held their long stick with a crumpet on the end with their arms stretched out over the fire. The toasted crumpets were delicious. When we had finished, we made sure to put the fire out using plenty of water.
