*Reminders*

 

We have PE every Monday and Wednesday mornings. Please make sure your child has their PE kit with everything named. It would also really help your child if you help them practise taking on and off their school uniforms themselves.

All of Reception went to the hall to do Write Dance to help us with our writing. We moved like volcanoes and then repeated this on our paper whilst lying on our tummies.

This half term we have been practising our Harvest Festival songs in our music lessons with Ms Chapple. We have had to listen very careful to help us learn the words.

We had great fun on Friday when Spud and Yam came to visit school. We learnt lots of new songs and experienced new instruments and their sounds.

Metabugs came to visit school and we had so much fun finding out about all the different bugs they had. We even held some of them! We had to be very quiet and still and said they felt tickly on our hands when they were walking!
It has been a fun, busy and exciting start to the new school year and we have definitely been enjoying exploring what it means to be in Reception. In these first few weeks of school, the children are learning to settle on the carpet, learning how to write their names, learning how to make friends and play nicely, as well as attending PE and music lessons! We have also had visitors come in to read us stories and show us unusual bugs – which was very exciting!

Summer Term

 

We have had a great and very busy start to the Summer Term in Ash Tree Class! We have been so excited to see new life start in many different ways.

 

Butterfly Release!

What a fabulous end to our very busy half term! The children were very excited to release our butterflies this afternoon. The whole of Reception and Nursery went to our garden to release our butterflies together. We had to be very quiet and watched carefully as our butterflies flew away one at a time.

Our Class Assembly

We hope you have an enjoyable and well rested half term holiday! The children have worked so hard this week, doing their class assembly about World Ocean Day. We are so proud of them! We have learnt lots about preventing plastic pollution and keeping the sea creatures safe. 

 

 

We have been keeping a close eye on our caterpillars and they have now formed into chrysalis'! We are very excited to see them transform into beautiful butterflies!

This week we have been practising our Under the Sea song for our assembly on Friday 24th May and it would be great if the children could continue practising at home. The children have also taken home a poem to practise their actions to go with it.

Life Cycle of a Butterfly

We have read The Very Hungry Caterpillar and learnt about the lifecycle of a butterfly. Ash Tree Class received a special delivery of caterpillars. We have been looking after and eagerly watching them grow daily. We are watching first hand their lifecycle to become butterflies. The children are very excited to release them when they become butterflies!

The children have been so excited to learn all about the life cycle that in their independent learning time they have been writing and drawing pictures of the life cycle. Fantastic work Ash Tree Class!

Our Trip to Odd's Farm! 

 

We had a brilliant time at the farm! The children were so excited to learn lots of different things at the farm, especially watching the cow being milked! We saw many animals and their babies including pigs, donkeys, rabbits, sheep and goats. We were able to stroke the rabbits, feed the sheep and goats and even helped bottle feed the kids. We were very lucky and got to end our day on the tractor ride seeing all the animals out in the fields! We were all very tired on the coach home, after our very busy day!

We have been very busy during the Last few weeks in Ash Tree Class.

We have learnt so much!

Autumn Term 

Christmas Play

A few weeks ago the children did so well in our Play ‘Christmas Counts’ performance.

Well Done Ash Tree Class.

 

Advent

We have learnt that Advent is a time when we wait for Jesus.

We have been learning about the ‘The First Christmas’.

The children each drew a story map and were able to retell the story.

 

The Polar Express-Chris Van Allsburg

The Past 2 weeks we have been learning and reading the story the Polar Express. We have done lots of good learning!

The children have been learning something each day about the story. They have been thinking carefully about how the boy in the story thinks, feels and the different people that he meets and greets.

We also had a pyjama day on Monday 17th December in which all the children took part in. We made a class train and had hot chocolate and marshmallows- pretending we were the children on the Polar express train going to the North Pole.
